So, first off, we didn't run into any bears and we're both glad for it. That was probably my only concern hiking out here. There had been a couple of sightings recently. One in the area we decided to hike and a couple around the campgrounds (not that that's unexpected). We did see some wildlife in the form of deer,... More

Beautiful area. Takes awhile to reach. It is for those wanting to spend an entire day hiking the trails and finding the treasures they readily advertise in the travel books. And those there to camp for some time. It is not for going to see just one think, and it is a 22 mile hike to the area where the... More

We drove to Thunder Bay Lookout and started raining so we decided just to drive to Silver Islet and back to Route 11/17. On the way back from Silver Islet we saw young black bear walking by the road completely free of worries. We stopped on the other side of the road and watched him for couple of minutes as... More

Beautiful campground. You should be prepared for lots of wildlife as they are acclimated to people. The bears are pretty aggressive even tho we left nothing out. They like screen tents and even grills. Saw in campsite...bear, fox, skunk and deer....and tons of Mosquitos. I would have felt safer in a camper rather than a tent. Weather perfect, but don't...

Although, as others have mentioned, this park is quite a distance from the main highway (11/17), it is ultimately worth the drive on a long and winding road...oue campsite was beautiful, HUGE, and very secluded. Even though we knew we had camping neighbors on all three sides, we never saw or heard them. We were fortunate to get a campsite... More

Driving to the park is a long way off the highway..we stopped at a pay n stop area along the rd that belongs to the park and took pics of the sleeping giant...deer on the rd have to be careful..the lake was nice to see

If you can get a spot on the lake, grab it. Wonderful sunsets, and clean campsites. Avoid the outhouses. They nasty.

It is a drive from Thunder Bay, but we always make an effort to camp there when we come in to Thunder Bay for the weekend. The campsites are roomy, Marie Louise Lake is warm and clean. The trail system is well marked even for first timers. So much to do there...we're always sad when our time there is done.

My girlfriend and I went across Canada and this was the second camp site we came across. It was honestly the best campsite wee ever been to. We went mid may and the weather was surprisingly warm and comfortable. Although it was a bit busy we were able to find a decent spot that had stairs to the lake. I... More
