Sleeping Giant Provincial Park

We just had a few fantastic days in a gorgeous spot! We left the peninsula this morning and are having breakfast in a diner by the highway, so we are “connected” again 🙂

The Sleeping Giant campground is on the shore of Marie Louise Lake and has an impressive view of the Sleeping Giant. We first picked a more remote waterfront site in the 200’s row past the rest of the campground. Luckily no bear visits, only a skunk! The next morning we switched to a pretty and less remote waterfront site for another two nights with even better views of the Sleeping Giant and steps down to the water! It wasn’t busy after Labour Day, but not lonely either. Just nice! A beautiful, tranquil spot to spend a few days relaxing, walking, fishing and visiting the Visitor Centre. As we had to drive to another site anyway, we took the opportunity to briefly visit Silver Islet just south of the park, an abandoned mining village (now cottages) on the shore of Lake Superior.

We left early this morning, hoping to see wildlife. No big game, but we did see turkey vultures up close. The weather forecast for the north shore of Lake Superior is bad, so instead of exploring that more, we are going west again in a bit, to the Atikokan area!
