We walked to Tea Harbour 3 children (all under 8) and 4 adults and had a great day. Nice well maintained trail. Sat on the pebble beach to enjoy our lunch. Highly recommended

An absolutely beautiful park. Scenery like you never seen before. Watch for bears. Lake Superior is cold. Take all g the story of nanabijou to tell around the campfire.

We drove through the park to see the fall colours. It was a lovely trip and would have been more exciting if it wasn’t raining. There are several hiking trails with varying challenges from a 1/2 mile hike to Joe Creek with a series of...More

We had no issues in our small sedan, roads were fine throughout the park. The only issue was, as someone else said, the road to the lookout. It was definitely worth it though!! But we had to take it slow as it was rough.

Two hours is not enough if planing to stop at the provincial park sleeping Gian. Many trails , but takes hours to walk and see the wonders of the place , Mount mackey would be a better destination for a short stop.
