Hiking the backcountry trails to majestic cliffs, skiing quiet trails while following wolf tracks, paddling or skiing along untouched rugged Lake Superior shorelines, Sleeping Giant Park provides an incredible wilderness experience in any season.

Lake Marie Louise campground is a wonderful, peaceful getaway. Make sure to book well in advance - very much for the nature enthusiast. Take one of the many hiking trails - very short yet spectacular is the Lions Head trail. Take advantage of spending time on the rock beach - so beautiful and soothing. Many short and long hiking trails... More

There are so so so many trails to walk in this park. Could have easily spent a week longer here. All campsites have great facilities. The hardest thing is choosing where to walk

This is one of the coolest Parks you can go to. The Vista from up above where you can see the sleeping giant formation is amazing. The park itself is a great hike with lots of visual stimulation. Don't miss going here if you visit Thunder Bay.

Our plan was to spend one night camping at this place but when it came close to the time of being picked up to return home we decided to stay one extra night because everyone had such a terrific time! We plan on coming there next summer again but for a whole week this time...can hardly wait!!!

In the off season you can rent the staff cabins. We did that this weekend. The cabins sleep 6, have a full kitchen, shower/bathroom and mud room. The price is very reasonable. We hiked up to Sawyer Bay and then half way up the chest of the Sleeping Giant (18KM). The fall colours and smells are amazing. The day ended... More

I spent five years of my life going to Lakehead University and was continually distracted by this place. Why? It's on the Sibley Peninsula that makes Thunder Bay a natural harbor and it visible from most parts of the city. The Kebeyun Trail is mostly easy... Until you hike the feet of the " Giant " or decide to climb... More

Beautiful view we took so many pictures . It actually looks like a former of a sleeping laying down in the middle of a lake. Very interesting

I'm sure it's a very nice park, but we just picked a bad day to go. The portions of the park we wanted to see (thunder bay outlook & silver islet) were so shrouded in fog we couldn't even see the water. The interior of the park was sunny & they appeared to have quite a few trails for walking.... More
