Quetico is a protected, pristine wilderness retreat of international acclaim west of Lake Superior on the Canada-U.S. border. The park's tangled network of lakes once formed water routes travelled by Ojibway and fur traders. Now it is primarily the destination of experienced canoeists seeking solitude and rare glimpses of wildlife by cascading waterfalls, glassy lakes and endless forests.
Quetico is primarily a wilderness canoeing park. There are 2,200 backcountry (interior) campsites, accessible by canoe, scattered around the park on over 600 lakes. There are no developed structures inside the wilderness area. Motorboats are only allowed on a handful of lakes. Canoe is the primary mode of transportation. Streams and footpaths called "portages" connect the lakes for easy wildneress travel. Primitively developed campsite near the water's edge provide a tent pad, fire grate, and latrine. Paddle near waterfalls, gorges, and rock palisades on the same routes the Native Americans and fur traders did centuries ago. Sportsmen in pursuit of smallmouth bass,northern pikewalleye and lake trout consider these border lakes some of the finest fishing in North America.

The park abounds in wildlife with one area boasting four moose per square mile, one of the highest densities in the province. The canoeist stands an excellent chance of seeing moose, beaver, otter, marten and the bald eagle (common in Quetico, but rare elsewhere). There are red squirrels, chipmunks, beaver and mink as well as 90 species of birds nesting here.
