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.

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.

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
