Quetico Permits

Quetico permits are required to enter the park. Quetico Provincial Park operates on a strict quota system with each park access point / ranger station being assigned a fixed number of entry permits per day. These Quetico permits are further divided between Canadian residents and Non-residents. Note that, as a certified Quetico outfitter we have access to the resident quota for Non-Resident reservations and are permitted to pickup your permit on your behalf.   

A few important points….

  • Reservations can not be made earlier than 5 months before your entry date E.g. Reserve on March 15th for entry on August 15th
  • Quetico Park is unique in the Ontario parks reservation system in that a $100 dollar trip deposit / permit is applied to your park fees.
  • A Non-refundable Ontario Parks reservation fee of $13.00 + Tax is also added to your $100 deposit
  • Limit: 9 people / permit
