Slate Islands Provincial Park
By Ontario Parks

Natural Features
This group of rugged islands is one of the places where woodland caribou still roam. The islands are also home to beaver, hare, fox and various shorebirds.

Remnants of two native settlements, as well as a former timber operation, are located here. The islands are covered with a southern boreal forest with some arctic-alpine flora. For the most part, the rock is early Precambrian of volcanic and sedimentary origin. There has been speculation that the central islands are the remains of an ancient meteorite.
