We had one room in the lodge and the teepee as well in August and we would have stayed a second night but there was no vacancy. It was only because of a cancellation that we could get the room on short notice. We never book our trips to Wawa with much notice and have wanted to try Rock Island... More

Sadly, I didn't get a chance to stay here. It was our first choice when searching the internet on our way up to Superior. We were just passing through and it caught my attention right away. I called and left a message and David called me back within 30 minutes. Sadly at the time I was out of cell range... More

If you love Lake Superior, good conversation, healthy food, wood stoves, eco-conscious tourism, and bald eagles....it doesn't get any better than this! I haven't been lucky enough to stay in warm or sunny weather to try out the kayaks, but there is always next time!

We broke a road trip across Canada by staying here for three days. Had no idea what to expect, but were blown away by the beautiful location, right on the shore of Lake Superior. It's quite a basic, dormitory style set-up, with only 4 rooms, and primarily aimed at outdoor lake activities. It was early in the season when we... More

In July 2013, the Mac ( McMaster University) girls from Brandon Hall got together for our annual good time at Rock Island Lodge. It was raining when we arrived from London, Hamilton, Mississauga and the Soo but that did not deter us from hiking from Silver Falls through a lovely peaceful forest. Our accommodation was shared with two gals in... More

On a recent camping trip to Ontario, we discovered we'd left our tent poles at home. We asked the nice folks at Naturally Superior Adventures/Rock Island Lodge if they could rent us a tent for a week. They did, for a very reasonable price, as well as a campsite at their rustic beach for the first night. It saved our... More

We just finished a photography workshop with James Smedley at the Rock Island Lodge which is situated on the north shores of Lake Superior. The views are stunning. The lodging and staff were wonderful and the food was delicious. We'll be back!

I just spent four days at Rock Island lodge. The staff were welcoming, food great, the setting absolutely stunning right on the shores of Lake Superior in a secluded setting. I was part of a photography workshop which was informative and I learn't a lot. Rock Island only has a few rooms, so you will not be overwhelmed with people.... More

And it is at the Rock Island Lodge in Wawa, Ontario! Right on the shores of Lake Superior. The rooms are painted to match the color of the water and the sky. The dining is communal. The folks there are interesting and interested. The food is wholesome and healthy, the vibe is low-key and confident, and the opportunity to see... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights in mid September at this delightful lodge. We had been informed that there would be a detour due to earlier flooding. This was no problem whatsoever as the detour was well signed by the lodge, and we had already travelled a good distance so another 15 or 20 minutes was no problem. Mostly... More
