Upper Madawaska River Provincial Park is a waterway-class provincial park on the Madawaska River in Nipissing District, Ontario, Canada. It is up-river and north of Lower Madawaska River Provincial Park.

As a non-operating park, it offers neither facilities nor services. Its most popular use is for whitewater kayaking and canoeing.

A rail corridor along the river that was originally built for the now-abandoned Ottawa, Arnprior and Parry Sound Railway has been incorporated into the park in the form of a rail trail.
