Day Trip

Very nice park. I would recommend this for a day trip. Be careful when driving on the trails, there are many rocks sticking out of the ground.

We reserved a spot that was across the lake from all of the larger campgrounds. We had our own private slice of lake shore. It was quiet, secluded, and amazing. We really learned why Thunder Bay got its name. The afternoon rolling thunder storms, lasting less than an hour, were amazing. If you like privacy and quiet, these spots are... More

The park is downright gorgeous. 800-900 foot cliffs that look over Lake Superior. The view is spectacular. We stayed at one of the interior campsites, which were in good condition. We did wish there was a water source at the main trail head- there isn't. And beware that if you don't travel at high season, supplies can be hard to... More

The park guide said something like... Venture out to the end of the cantilevered lookout... How difficult can that be I thought. LOL quite the view and if you do not like heights, probably best to stay on solid ground! Well worth the nine kilometer drive on uneven roads.

I've been to a lot of parks across this continent, but you'd have a hard time convincing me that there is a better park for hiking, camping and sight seeing than the Sleeping Giant Prov. Park. The hiking has numerous options, including some pretty tough hikes, but something for everyone. Great campsites and all the amenities and activities that you... More

If you've stared across Lake Superior at Sleeping Giant at all then you know that one day you want to hike the entire trail - head, torso, knees and feet. But any of the hikes there have gorgeous views and great daily or multi day excursions.

Camped at the 216 rv trailer site. Excellent spot for rest and relaxation as wildlife ( deer, ducks, skunk,fox)came and visited us consonantly. Not a fear as wildlife was tame.Weather was great and access to lake was right off of campsite (bit slippery and rocky to get to lake water). Hydro was available and if cord wasn't long enough, you... More
