Classified as a Natural Park, its purpose is to preserve areas that are representative of the Hayes River Upland portion of the Precambrian Boreal Forest Natural Region and to accommodate a diversity of recreational opportunities and resource uses. The area we know today as Paint Lake was the bottom of glacial Lake Agassiz.
