Neys Prov. Park is on the shore of Lake Superior and offers a variety of camping sites. You can camp near the beach in open and somewhat vulnerable sites, or you can camp in the forest surrounded and protected by trees. Both are attractive and different experiences. It's a great place to canoe, on the river or on the lake... More

Neys Provincial park is a very good place to experience the north shore of Lake Superior. It is very accessible. There a number of very good hikes. The hikes and all the park has to offer can be learned at the park visitors center. This was the site of a POW camp during the second world war so there is... More

I had no expectations for this park and it was probably my favourite of the many parks we went to on our Circle Tour. It has a very interesting history, the visitor centre is quite good, and if you walk out to the rocky point the geology exhibits/plaques are absolutely fascinating. It is gorgeous, with true "Group of 7" views,... More

We picked this park for a picnic and walk in the midst of a long driving day. The staff at the visitors centre were friendly and knowledgeable, inquiring as to our interests before boring us with things we weren't really interested in. After learning a bit about the history, they pointed us towards the beach where we picnicked on a... More

Great stop to learn thing or two about geology of the region while walking on beautiful beach. The walk starts on sandy beach and follows educational boards installed on top of the different rock formations. We ended the hike on the beach full of rock looking like unpolished bowling balls or dinosaur's eggs. Perfectly clear water of Lake Superior and... More

All the parks in Canada are pretty great, the ones on Lake Superior especially, but this one has a history center that can tell you all about the POW camp that was there. They even have a book with pictures and stories from the camp! It is a unique stop on the Superior Circle tour and is well worth it!

I grew up in Terrace Bay and visited this park many times with my family during the mid to late 60's. Much Later in as an adult in the early 2000's we hiked into a crack in the granite upwards several hundred feet. This was across the railroad trestle all the way to the top of the mountain. The view... More

This park has the cleanest facilities I have ever experienced. I would definitely stay there again. My campsite was right next to the lake. The beach and the water was so clean. I thought that the water would be freezing, but because we were in a shallow bay, the water was quite tolerable.

We spent three nights at Neys on September 1-4. It was chilly and there were not many people there at the time so not sure how busy it normally gets. The beach was AMAZING! All the driftwood makes the beach so interesting and I am very happy they do not allow people to burn it! Not only is it nice... More

We really enjoyed our 3 days camping at Neys Provincial Park. The sites generally lack views to the lake (with the exception of the RV area) but are very private and a number of them have paths leading to the beach. The sand in some areas of the beach is so white and soft it feels like velvet! The weather... More
