I've spent several nights backpack camping at the numerous campsites throughout the park and have fond memories of each one. There is a lot of wildlife (bears, wolves, deer, mice etc) so be a good camper send use the food lockers and... More

Great hike on trail leading to sea lion rock. Not too long or difficult and saw families with young children who seemed to be able to do it. Lookout over the lake on another road was spectacular!

A good campground, most sites have lots of privacy. Many things to do for everyone. Lots of hiking trails for all levels and the visitors center is great. Beach is large with play equipment. Lots of interpretive learning. Enjoyable!

This park has some of the most spectacular trails in Ontario. Hikes along Lake Superior, climbs up the Sleeping Giant, inland lakes, different types of forest, all make up these amazing trails. Some of the best hiking in Ontario.

We camp here regularly every summer. There are lots of hourly, or daily trips you can take to one of the many hiking trails or local sites. Any site on the lake offers a great view of Mary Louise lake. The beach offers great enjoyment for sun lovers and kids to play in the sand. The visitors center offers a... More

Ranger station has some excellent suggestions (esp a gravel road way up near entrance that heads west to incredible views, a lookout and a hiking train that is exciting and... More

Camped in campground for a weekend in August 2016. Site and bathrooms were clean. Nice hiking trails. Had a mother bear with her cub visit our campsite in the evening and fortunately didn't have any problems with either. When you camp, make sure you keep your site nice and tidy. I left no food (even crumbs) outside, we've never eaten... More

This beautiful Provincial park is a relatively short drive from Thunder Bay and has something to offer for everyone. There are numerous trails for hiking or skiing from very short walks to day-long/multiple-day hikes, from easy and handicap accessible to very difficult/strenuous hiking. The views from the overlooks are absolutely stunning! There is also a nice campground available, but we... More

We went in late September to try out the travel trailer we just purchased. It was very peaceful, great view of Lake Mary Louise, not busy because kids were back in school. We're looking forward to returning in the spring!
