  • First, this is our second visit to Sleeping Giant PP, the first was 20 years ago. We love this park, the remoteness, the wildlife sightings, the choice of hiking trails, the size of the tent campsites...  more »
  • We were in Thunder Bay for a 3 day trip and seeing this lookout was at the top our list of things to do. The drive in is long and rough but the lookout is amazing! If you're there in the summer bring ...  more »

  • Beautiful park. For the May long weekend someone of the trails weren't cleaned up of fallen trees yet, which actually added to our experience of nature. Rangers were extremely helpful. Plenty of deer around. Camping sites had very little privacy. No phone signals.
  • Fantastic hiking! Found a trail down to the shoreline and jumped into the water. The hike was pretty tough at places, be sure to have real hiking boots and pants. Lots of climbing over fallen trees!
  • Highly recommend the day hike to the top of the giant. Make sure you keep going past the peak for some amazing views.
  • There's lots of good hiking here. The camp sites are nice. Except for the skunks recently. They were pretty friendly when we were there. Didn't spray, but who wants to take that chance? The beach is great. Probably one of the best parts of the park.
  • Lots of hiking trails for any ability level. Beautiful scenery, clear dark skies at night for astronomy. Plenty of wildlife, nice campsites. Just bring plenty with you, it's a long drive out to get food or gas.
