Michipicoten Island, ON
This isolated, seldom visited island offers true solitude, striking scenery, and plentiful caribou and beaver. Designated as an Ontario Provincial Park in the 1960s, it has seen little development of any kind except for a few private inholdings, or patent lands, in Quebec Harbor. The north side of the island consists primarily of bluffs or cliffs set back from boulder beaches, while the south shore has alternating sand and raised cobble beaches. Located 10 miles off the Ontario coast, it can be reached by charter boat or by paddling from Wawa and crossing to the island from the mainland. Apart from Quebec Harbor, the shoreline of the island is extremely exposed and offers relatively few good landing beaches, making this a challenging paddle.
