Tidewater Provincial Park is a provincial park located on five islands[2] in the Moose River estuary between Moosonee and Moose Factory, Ontario, Canada:

  • Charles Island
  • South Charles Island
  • Butler Island
  • Hayes Island
  • Bushy Island

The park was created in 1964 and is operated by the Town of Moosonee rather than the Ministry of Natural Resources.[3]

Access to the park is by boat only, including water taxis from Moosonee, Ontario.[4]

Camping[edit]

Overnight camping was eliminated due to cuts in 2012 and park is no longer listed on the Ontario Parks website.[5]
