Woodland Caribou Provincial Park is a provincial park in northwestern Ontario, Canada, west of Red Lake. It borders eastern Manitoba, and is made up of Canadian Shield and boreal forest. Woodland Caribou Provincial Park is a wilderness park of 450,000 hectares (1,100,000 acres). The parks western boundary is shared with Atikaki Provincial Park and Nopiming Provincial Park in the province of Manitoba.

The park is noted as a wilderness canoe destination, with over 2,000 kilometres (1,200 mi) of waterways that weave a pattern between large interconnected lakes and rivers, including the Bloodvein and Gammon Rivers.
