    A campground with many sites and a beautiful sandy beach on the south side of the highway and a magnificent lookout called the Edmond Fitzgerald lookout on the north side. It is a 3km hike from the pa...  more »

    Camped here 23 years ago so came again. Couple things to be aware of. If you want electric the power post is quite a distance from the campy post. Good idea to bring a proper 220 extension cord with y...  more »

    It has a great atmosphere, easy to access campgrounds, great hiking trails, and friendly staff. Camp sites are a little close together but with proper positioning of the car and tent privacy was available. The beach is nice sand and lake superior is beautiful as always. Lost one point for close distance to highway.

    Every campground is gorgeous as well as the beaches and hiking trails. Just be aware that you cannot park off certian areas of the highway without your parking permit displayed, watch for signs. If you are camping I would only recommend that you not take a site facing the highway as it can be very noisy. Some sites are literally 10' from the highway so watch your kids and pets. Aside from that this park has everything to offer. If you want to fish, hike, swim, kayak, canoe etc you've come to the right place. Very friendly staff and the campgrounds are always kept clean and in working order. You do not have to pay for showers but you do need to pay for laundry. BRING YOUR CAMERA!! The scenery is some of the best you will ever see, bring extra SD cards for your camera!

    Beautiful campground located right on Lake Superior. Friendly staff and we'll kept sites. Comfort stations and outhouse are clean and in easily accessible locations. Gorgeous beach front and hiking trails.

    Roadtrip. We camped at Pancake Bay Provincial Park campground last night and it was awesome! Park officer recommended to us a site just a few steps from the beach (there are a lot of sites like this available). Lake Superior is a biggest sweet water lake in the world and its definitely Superior to any lake we've seen so far. We dragged our recliners to the beach and spent there all evening. Sites are large and have thick bushes around giving privacy to campers. We had neighbours on 2 out of 3 sides and it still was pretty quiet night. Camping equipped with flush toilets and private showers (seriously i saw travertine tiles in there). Firewood available at the park office for about 6$ a bundle. It was a lot of mosquitos at night though, but spray, coil or mosquito net works like a charm. Entertainment. Walk, swim or simply chill out. If you want to try something really great, visit a market located just a minutes away east from campground entrance, they have an awesome selection of local crafts. I personally recommend to try smoked lake trout available there!
