My husband and I spent 3 days here as part of our Lake Superior tour. The view of Lake Superior was beautiful, and there are many water activities you can do while you are there. The staff are super friendly. After a busy day it was great to have the option to eat dinner right there at the lodge. An... More

The Rock Island Lodge proved to be an excellent place to stay. From the warm welcome to the heartfelt farewell, we were well taken care of. The breakfast was simple but very adequate. The optional dinner was well prepared and enjoyable. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. The staff was always upbeat and helpful, always eager to make our stay... More

We were riding a motorcycle from Toronto to Vancouver. Booked a room and dinner at Rock Island Lodge although we knew it would be tight. It's about 7 hrs from the Chi-Cheemaun ferry that docked at South Baymouth at 11AM. Got there 6:30Pm, straight off the bike and sat down to buffet dinner with other guests and locals from Wawa...

The Rock Island Lodge is a simple and relaxing establishment that, although near Wawa, is off the beaten path (in a good way!). The property is on Lake Superior and offers beautiful views in every direction. The owners are friendly without being intrusive. Breakfast is included in the nightly rate and is healthy, delicious and plentiful. Dinner is available for... More

Location, Location, Location. What a beautiful spot on the north shore of Lake Superior, just north of the Lake Superior Provincial Park. The room was comfortable, but not fancy. The breakfast was fine. Good place to kayak, paddle board, canoe, hike or just sit and watch the water. The owners were friendly.

Stayed a couple nights as part of a trip around Lake Superior. Extremely friendly and accommodating folks, who asked us if we would like to participate (at cost) in dinners of chicken pot pie and whitefish. Not much elements in the town of Wawa, so the dinners were a really good deal. The lodge is on a rocky point, with... More

I knew we weren't getting a Delta, and by comparison, perhaps Rock Island is pretty good - compared to the roadside motels in this part of the country, but is was not at all what we had in mind. Its like a camp - the food, the rooms and the common area. The first and "best" room has its own... More

I've spent several nights at Rock Island and will spend many more. The setting is superb, the lodge is cozy and welcoming. Rooms are clean and spacious, most with wonderful views out their windows. In the evening you can relax down at the beach in front of a fire or inside the main room of the lodge beside the fire... More
