It is a short drive of about 25miles off the main highway. It is very picturesque and you are sure to see some wildlife be it foxes or skunks or maybe even a large moose browsing in a small lake of which there are many. The campground is well maintained and there is an abundance of nature trails to travel... More

The hike up the Sleeping Giant offers beautiful views. The trail "The Top of the Giant Trail" is not as challenging or fun as the Old Chimney, but there are still beautiful beaches (Middlebrun Bay) and stone beaches (at the base of the Giant). Great backpacking park.

We stayed at sleeping giant provincial park for a couple nights. The park was nice at Marie Louise lake. Wild life is not quite so wild- even a fox and a skunk wandered through (along with the regular ducks and chipmunks). The staff was nice and the visitor center was pretty cool. Hubby and daughters enjoyed renting a canoe and... More

We camped 2 days in late August. Hiked several short trails, but mostly enjoyed the campsite on the lake (site 140A), situated at the tip of the campground peninsula. Very windy one day. Great sunset and star gazing, with great waterfowl viewing. Got a surprise visit by a skunk, but no damage done! Be aware that the nearest groceries and... More

On our recent tour around Lake Superior - we added Sleeping Giant as one of our destinations. Sleeping Giant is beautiful from afar - but the area is not as accessible as many other beautiful hikes around Lake Superior - this area is more for those who are into long back-packing adventures around the peninsula rather than a half-day hike...

Great Park and views we hiked the Kabeyn Trail to Lehtinen's Bay. Had a picnic at the beach on Marie Louse Lake. Later in the day we hiked the Joe Creek Trail which led to a waterfall. Great views, just wish we had more time to enjoy!!!

We first visited the park last year and spent the day exploring hiking trails (Joeboy, Wildlife & drove to TB Lookout site). We're not skilled hikers but enjoy the outdoors spending time with nature. The visitor's centre is very well done and informative. The trails are reasonably well marked if you keep an eye out for the small signs along... More

We live in TBay and went out a couple of Sunday's ago to explore the park. I had done some internet research at the park's site. There are several trails in absolutely beautiful surroundings. I expect some of them would have steep hills, etc based on our exploring in the minivan, but it looks like a great place to go.... More
