We headed north from Killbear Provincial Park in Parry Sound on the Trans Canada Highway to Sudbury, known for it’s giant 1951 replica 30′ nickel, and on west to Chutes Provincial Park. It was a lovely drive and no, we didn’t see the nickel. Apparently, the parking lot there (Dynamic Earth Museum) does not accommodate RV’s with any pull thrus sites. There are a variety of back-in sites for tour buses. Supposedly if you get there early in the morning you might be able to maneuver a spot to park.
Chutes Provincial Park is less than half a mile north from the Trans Canada Highway whereby making it easy to get to.

Comments: A beautiful treed campground with great falls along the River Aux Sables and a few nice hiking trails. We had read some reviews which recommended 3 sites which were next to the falls so you could hear the waterfalls from them. Site 93 was one of them. Our site was directly across from the steps down to the falls and you could hear the falls but not as loud as we had hoped.
Seeing as the steps to the falls were directly across from our site that meant we made a number of trips up and down those steps to view the falls.
There are a few hiking trails along the river with a bridge that leads over to the other side of the river with more trails. We explored the area and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
