This is a lovely park not too far from Thunder Bay; it is quite a drive from the highway as other have mentioned, however. Clean facilities and fairly helpful staff. The short Sea Lion trail was perfect for my 7 and 11 year old reluctant...More

We drove through the park and it's a nice park. Drove to the Thunder Bay Lookout. Amazing views. It was a rough road to get there, but it was worth it. Bug spray is good to have. There is also a nice little beach near...More

If you're looking for some basics, there is a spot at the highway. Say 35 km. If you need a good thorough shop, you're talking about 70 km.
