  • 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.
  • Staff were friendly and helpful. Showers and bathrooms we clean. Park was well maintained. Lots of wildlife. Will definately make the trek back up
  • Didn't meet my expectations. Maybe I had high expectations. But good for hiking. If you can visit Kekabeka Falls if you can.
  • 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!
  • Great views. Super buggy. The animals while cute were way too friendly.

Where to stay in Thunder Bay

The city center doesn't offer much in the way of accommodations, with the relatively industrial surrounds featuring little to interest tourists. Most visitors stay north of the center along the waterfront, where Water Street and Cumberland Street offer the biggest range of motels and inns. Here, you'll have views over the city's marina and port, giving you a sense of the region's maritime culture. Arthur Street West, which sits at the entrance to the airport, offers a range of motels and chain hotels perfect for visitors just passing through the city.
