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.

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

The hike up the Sleeping Giant offers beautiful views. The trail "The Top of the Giant Trail" is not as challenging or fun as the Old Chimney, but there are still beautiful beaches (Middlebrun Bay) and stone beaches (at the base of the Giant). Great backpacking park.

We stayed at sleeping giant provincial park for a couple nights. The park was nice at Marie Louise lake. Wild life is not quite so wild- even a fox and a skunk wandered through (along with the regular ducks and chipmunks). The staff was nice and the visitor center was pretty cool. Hubby and daughters enjoyed renting a canoe and... More
