Nopiming Provincial Park is a provincial park in Manitoba, Canada. It is located on the southeast side of the province, along the boundary with Ontario.

The area is mostly boreal forest and Canadian Shield with many lakes and rivers. There are a few gravel roads through the park, camping facilities, hiking trails, and a few cottages. The area is very remote and the most southern herd of woodland caribou can be found here. Further to the north is Atikaki Provincial Wilderness Park with no roads. Almost the entire east side of Lake Winnipeg is wilderness, with a few First Nation communities and very few small towns.

The park's name comes from the Anishinaabe word noopiming, meaning "in the woods/brush" used in reference to coming off a lake and heading inland. Another translation of "Nopiming" from the Anishinaabe language is "Entrance to the Wilderness".

Both Booster Lake and Springer Lake are located in Nopiming Provincial Park.

Film[edit]

A film titled Nopiming Provincial Park 2 was made about forestry in the park in 2010. In the video is said "This video is part of the Developing Forest Services project funded by the Academy of Finland (project # 12340). It is intended to create dialogue about forest conflicts and use, and our conception of forests."
