Arrowhead Provincial Park is located north of Huntsville, Ontario, Canada, and is part of the Ontario Parks system. A portion of the shoreline of Glacial Lake Algonquin is visible in the park.[3]

During the winter, a 1.3-kilometre (0.81 mi) man-made skating trail winds through the forest.[4] Other winter activities at the park include cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and tubing.[5]
