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

Beautiful rustic park, with nice amenities. Wildlife roams freely through the park. Bring your bikes, the park is big. Nice beach and great swimming. You are close to Sliver Islet and for climbing enthusiasts there is are great hiking trails. washrooms and showers and fresh water throughout the park.

Had the pleasure of camping at Sleeping Giant last September. It was a beautiful spacious camp site. We climbed Sleeping Giant and it had amazing views at the top. Definitely a favourite spot of mine, too bad it's so far away.

Being originally from Thunder Bay, my family has been going to the park since I can remember! It used to be called Sibley Provincial Park! It is a peninsula that stretches out into Lake Superior. This is the Sleeping Giant! From down town Port Arthur (Thunder Bay north) you can see the outline of an Indian Chief sleeping with his... More

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.
