Sleeping Giant Provincial Park – Thunder Bay, Ontario

From Neys Provincial Park we continued west on Trans Canada Highway towards Thunder Bay.


Sibley Peninsula is a 53 km long peninsula just east of the town of Thunder Bay and is home to the Sleeping Giant – a rock formation which looks like a “Sleeping Giant” from Thunder Bay. It is also home to the Sleeping Giant Provincial Park.

Comments: A nice campground with a number of sites lake front on Marie Louise Lake. It was a bit buggy with a few black flies here and there but that is seasonal. The lake has a swimming beach and great views.


The campground has a lovely day use area and swimming beach.


The small community of Silver Islet sits at the southern tip of Sibley Island and is a charming, quaint area looking out over Lake Superior.


The park has a lookout point along Thunder Bay called, appropriately, Thunder Bay Lookout. The drive is a 5 mile dirt road off the main road with warning signs denoting it is rough and steep. It actually wasn’t that bad. At the end of the road is a steep overlook and it had lots of horse flies!! Yowzer! But it was a beautiful view across Thunder Bay even though it was cloudy and rainy.


And, of course, there is “The” Sleeping Giant as seen from across Marie Louise Lake.
