Beautiful park with well marked hiking trails. We especially liked the Top of the Giant hike and the Head hike. The incredible views from the top are a great reward. We saw very little birds and wildlife in this park. Lake Marie Louise is lovely and there are lots of smaller lakes too. The cantilever deck extension at Thunder Bay... More

My wife and I are avid hikers and really enjoyed the challenging hikes at Sleeping Giant. There are so many trails and hiking possibilities that the park could keep you busy for days. The views are varied and breathtaking while the hikes range from easy to quite challenging, with plenty of paths to choose from. We did not camp in... More

When we were in Thunder Bay, the #1 attraction we heard about was Sleeping Giant, and we could see why! The far-up lookout includes an absolutely worth it panoramic view of Lake Superior and, most importantly, Sleeping Giant. However, it takes a while to get to the lookout and the road to it gets quite bumpy so if you decide... More

We have to going to this park for 25 years, it is wonderful. We do the hikes , and spend time at the beach. Our group usually rents 5 sites for two weeks at a time. This is our little piece of paradise. I just wish the wardens were trained better in people skills. They always seem to come on... More

We did a road trip around Lake Superior and tent camped at several state and provincial parks. This one was our favorite. We visited on a weekday in mid August and showed up to the campground without reservations. There were several sites available and the woman working was friendly and suggested some of her favorite vacant sites. It was a... More

We re-visited this park with our family this summer and had a great day visit. Saw the TBay lookout, ate a picnic lunch on Lake Marie Louise, hiked to the Sealion, checked out the visitor centre, and strolled around Silver Islet. Easy day trip, lots more to see on the big hikes.

the drive up to the top can be a little rough, but the view is worth it! bring bug spray!!! and be ready to take you car to the car wash after. the road is very dusty (it's actually pink dust!) and it gets everywhere :P

Be prepared to turn back. The day pass station is Off the main road. You would miss it if you didn't Read the signage. We went to the Thunder Bay lookout. Be prepared for a bumpy drive. It's all off road with potholes galore. If you have a smaller vehicle be prepared to take your time. We have a truck... More
