The park guide said something like... Venture out to the end of the cantilevered lookout... How difficult can that be I thought. LOL quite the view and if you do not like heights, probably best to stay on solid ground! Well worth the nine kilometer drive on uneven roads.

I've been to a lot of parks across this continent, but you'd have a hard time convincing me that there is a better park for hiking, camping and sight seeing than the Sleeping Giant Prov. Park. The hiking has numerous options, including some pretty tough hikes, but something for everyone. Great campsites and all the amenities and activities that you... More

If you've stared across Lake Superior at Sleeping Giant at all then you know that one day you want to hike the entire trail - head, torso, knees and feet. But any of the hikes there have gorgeous views and great daily or multi day excursions.

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
