Great Park and views we hiked the Kabeyn Trail to Lehtinen's Bay. Had a picnic at the beach on Marie Louse Lake. Later in the day we hiked the Joe Creek Trail which led to a waterfall. Great views, just wish we had more time to enjoy!!!

We first visited the park last year and spent the day exploring hiking trails (Joeboy, Wildlife & drove to TB Lookout site). We're not skilled hikers but enjoy the outdoors spending time with nature. The visitor's centre is very well done and informative. The trails are reasonably well marked if you keep an eye out for the small signs along... More

We live in TBay and went out a couple of Sunday's ago to explore the park. I had done some internet research at the park's site. There are several trails in absolutely beautiful surroundings. I expect some of them would have steep hills, etc based on our exploring in the minivan, but it looks like a great place to go.... More

So, I'm an Ontarian, and I live in Thunder Bay. I went to Sleeping Giant today to take my dog for a walk for a couple hours. I had to pay the "day use fee" ... which now amounts to $14. Two years ago, what was then a $10 fee was enough for a few hours, but the increase to... More

Not everybody likes camping - but you don't have to, you can go in and get a day pass and visit the spectacular overlook to the city of Thunder Bay. I have been there in both rain and shine and both have their charms. If you are a camper, you will find an excellent set of amenities, good hiking options... More

Always great to go see the sleeping giant. There is also a Terry Fox memorial here which is also great to see.

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...
