Drove up to Ontario for a long weekend to unplug, hike and relax. A couple girlfriends and I camped at Sleeping Giant Provicial Park. This is a nice park, but there were a couple immediate disappointments: 1) We were told not to drink the water without boiling it for 5 minutes first due to high levels of bacteria, 2) We... More

Four of us were lucky enough to visit Sleeping Giant Provincial park on a day when it was free to the public, not sure how often this occurs but was a nice surprise. The day, weather wise turned out to be perfect and made our approximately 8 kilometre hike to the Sea Lion and Tee Harbour a pleasant half day... More

We loved this park for the water and the views! Plan on hiking far if you really want to get in some high views along the cliffs, otherwise, it's fairly easy to find Lake Superior bay spots on the beach for smaller hikes.

our one day for this park was full of rain. Did little hiking due to wet, and many mosquitoes. Will maybe go back, without the rain. A pretty park, lots of woods, and supposed to have some good hiking trails.... We didn't do them, tho.

Sleeping Giant park is my favourite place in the world. They have extensive and amazing trails, some of which take you right down to the water and you can swim. Stop in to their visitors centre for a map of the trails. Also take the -quite long- and winding drive out to the lookout, you won't regret it.

The view from the top of the knees is amazing, you must hike it. It was definitely a highlight of my first visit and I love going back to it. A common trip is camping at T-harbour but it's a much nicer hike to go to the other side of the park or one of the campsites farther down the... More

The park was beautiful, and the views exemplary, however the road to the lookout was washed out, heavily ridged, dusty, and in extremely poor repair. If you aren't driving in a vehicle that you would consider capable of minor off-roading, I would recommend against the 9k drive up to the lookout, in spite of the breathtaking view. There was also...

This was our second visit to Sleeping Giant Provincial Park, Lake Louise campground. There are lots of great sites on the lakeshore that have views of the sleeping giant ridge. The comfort station and toilets are well maintained. As with all the Ontario Provincial Parks pictures of each campsite are on the reservation site, so you mostly know what you're... More

My wife and I camped here the other night and it was outstanding. The views all over the park are absolutely breathtaking. We were in campsite 115 which was just a stone's throw from the lake which provided a great. Is of the giant. We did a short hike to the Sea Lion in the morning, which was quite lovely.... More

We camped at the Sleeping Giant Lake Louise campsite, in the 300 series of sites which is across the lake from the main campground in early July. The sites were large and private with beautiful lake views. Adequate fire rings, picnic table and a remote feeling were important parts to our stay. Pre-plan your needs for drinking water or a...
