Lake Superior Provincial Park

      park, central Ontario, Canada, on the eastern shore of Lake Superior. Established in 1944 to preserve the rugged shoreline and surrounding region of pink granitic hills, it has an area of 595 square miles (1,540 square km). Among the park's attractions are the Agawa pictographs, rock paintings created over many millennia by Indians. Moose, bear, white-tailed deer, and red squirrel inhabit the forests of maple, poplar, and spruce. The park has many recreational facilities, including trails throughout its hilly, wooded areas and fishing in its lakes and rivers.
