I have used the park multiple times, living in close by Thunder Bay. I have a friend with a camp in Silver Islet and this is where I usually stay although camping in the park is fun. The park is family friendly with lots to do including a visitors centre with a cool gift shop and exhibits. I even attended... More

We pre - booked a site... probably didn't need to but better safe than sorry and there was lots of room. Firewood is costly so I was glad we brought our own. Skunks... omg skunks. No one got sprayed but they are all over the place at night. The wildlife is very bold. A fox on the table at 11pm...... More

This geological feature is located on Sibley Peninsula, not too far east of Thunder Bay. It is a very scenic drive from the Trans Canada Highway turnoff to the end of the peninsula at Silver Islet. A spectacular scenic lookout atop the rocks looks over the waters towards Thunder Bay. The turnoff for this "trail" is located the Lizard Lake,... More

I and my family have been going to Sleeping Giant Park for close to 20 years. We've done a lot of the hiking trails and always have enjoyed our visits. The beach area is great and park is kept very clean.

Great park to visit, lots of hiking/biking trials of varying difficulties and distances. The trails range from well worn paths, to flagging tapped donkey trails that you have to be in reasonable shape to manage. I've hiked a dozen trails in the park and most several times. I could write an essay there's so much to see, so to keep... More

The Thunder Bay lookout was very impressive but a long and slow drive out to it. The park is good for hiking but we were hoping to bike around but it is not good for that.

Over an hour drive outside of Thunder Bay but the Terry Fox Monument breaks it up nicely. The drive to the park is super simple down highway 11 and one turn onto highway 587 and that gets you to all the trails.There are a ton of trails that you can take all ranging in difficulty and length. Day parking pass... More

The drive to the head of the giant is great and the drive to the silver islet is beautiful but the best part is camping at Lake Marie Louise.

Lots of places to stop and walk, hike or get wet. Wonderful vistas and places for picture taking...a true gem on the north shore of Lake Superior. Whether you're there for the day or longer, a favourite and popular spot for locals and guests...always something or some place new to explore and see.
