Lake Superior Provincial Park is one of Ontario's largest parks and features rugged northern terrain set against the immense and unpredictable Lake Superior. The most pervasive influence on the climate, landscape and culture of the region is the Lake itself. The park's vegetation profile is most striking at the height of the region's famous fall colours when the brilliant reds and yellows of the southern deciduous trees contrast with the dark evergreen forests. Mammals who call the park home include moose, white-tailed deer, woodland caribou, black bear, red squirrel, red fox, and timber wolf. The most dramatic legacy from the original Ojibwa inhabitants of the park is the presence of dramatic pictographs at Agawa Rock. The Park's more recent residents were the men who would become the Group of Seven. Some of the Group's most famous and exciting work was produced during the Superior period.
