Great scenery, hikes of all lengths and difficulty levels, helpful staff, nice campground. For a quick stopover, I would suggest the southern headlands and beach trail - a beautiful view!

Stopped here for an overnight on opening day (12 May this year) and the Hattie Cove campground was busy. Soft opening so the modern bathroom facilities weren't open (and summer staff were being trained). There's a few short hikes out onto the rocky points that...More

This is an amazing park. Firstly, the scenery is absolutely spectacular and more than worth the long drive to get there. I was pleasantly surprised by just how much there was to do though. There's very little information on the Parks Canada site but there...More

This park lives up to all the hype and expectation. We spent two days here, with Wawa as our basecamp. Words and pictures cannot describe this place. We hiked three trails; the 'Southern Headlands' gives the best views of Superior, while 'Manito Mikkana' gives you...More

You can reserve there I think. If it's a long weekend it might be busy but I've never seen in full up.
