Pancake Bay Provincial Park Reviews
We camped in Pancake Bay for 5 nights in August. It was our first time north of Sault Ste. Marie and the scenery along Highway 17 is stunning. We used Pancake Bay as our home base, making day trips to... more »
À notre arrivée au camping, nous sommes accueillis par un groupe de bernaches avec leurs petits. Nous avons un emplacement juste sur le bord de la plage. Magnifique vue.

The camp site is in length on the edge of Lake Superior. This Lake is so large. It represents 10% of the supply of fresh water in the world... No way of getting soaked however. The water is cold. We take a walk in the campsite at night. It's cold. About 11 c. Be well dressed... But he made clear very late here. 21 h 30 and looks like it is 19:30. Rising to Pancake Provincial Park, it was decided to take a walk on the beach. On the other hand, the sand is very soft and makes walking very tiring. We then opted for a hike in tandem across the campsite. We think it will be very short, but ultimately got a nice tour. We discover an amphitheater built on the rock. Ingenious. We also discover that the entire region was the favorite of the "group of seven" and easily recognized the landscapes, rocks, trees that have inspired their paintings. We also discover a trail into a small swamp. With great pleasure, we photograph carnivorous plants. Two different species. Pancake Bay Provincial Park is now one of my favorite provincial parks in Ontario...
Pancake Bay is a lovely little park. It runs parallel to the shores of Lake Superior. Lake Superior is a very cold lake but the water in Pancake Bay is fairly shallow so as long as the weather is nice... more »
This place is so beautiful. Very clean trails and facilities. Staff is friendly and very helpful. It's really good for running. Amazing place for camping and for the family. It has very beautiful scenic sights as well. Recommended 10 outta 10. The beach is very pretty and we'll kept
The park is basically a strip of forest between the road and the beach. Very long beach and gorgeous view of Lake Superior. Be prepared for cold weather because it is so up North. It has the same setup as most provincial parks
Long skinny beautiful campground that hugs a narrow strip between the highway and the lake. If you pay the premium for lake front sites , it's a lot nicer ... except that every really nice campsite seemed to be occupied by a monster RV running its generator. We accidentally choose a site too close to the highway and had the all night truck noise that made us feel like we were back in downtown Montreal. The actual park office/exit is not well marked , making it tricky to find our way out. We got stuck for 15 minutes on the narrow lakefront lane while a retired couple in a shiny new bus (complete with walkie talkies) tried to back out of their site while avoiding scratching their expensive vehicle. Judging by their body language, the conversations for the rest of their day were going to be tense!
Awesome sandy beach. Marks almost the halfway point between Toronto and Thunder bay. I always spend the night here when I am driving the trip back and forth. Clean showers with hot water! A little expensive as a stop over just to spend the night as it is in the Parks system (require 24 hour pass + Park entrance fee). Would love to spend several days or maybe even a week here sometime and just relax.
Pancake Bay is a paradise 45 minutes north of Sault Ste. Marie. The campground is large and it's easy to get a site without booking too far ahead. The beach pristine and completely sand, there are shower facilities, a playground and other activities for kids. Pancake is pet-friendly has has a sizable dog beach. I try and stop in at least once a summer even if it's only for the day.
