We knew that Sleeping Giant Provincial Park was a bit of a distance off of the Trans-Canada Highway, but we figured the extra bit of travel would be worth the time. Unfortunately what we found was disappointing. While the park had vast amounts of land, trees, and plenty of wildlife, the camping area was far too open (lack of trees... More

We spent a day hiking in Sleeping Giant Provincial Park. Some of the access points had barricades on them on the day we were visiting however, we were still able to hike the Garner Lake Trail, which we chose because it was noted to be a good Moose sighting area. We saw 3 Black Bears which was terribly exciting but... More

I love back country camping, but my friend I was with does not. She likes camping and hiking, just not together. We stayed on the more secluded lots and the more crowded campsites had showers and flush toilets for my friend when she had enough of the out houses. The hiking was great, we opted for a couple of day... More

I recently hiked the Toes at Sleeping Giant. It was a long hard hike about 16km with many hills. However the views at the beach were amazing and the Hike to Sea Lion was also incredible. The view across the bay was gorgeous, I wouldn't trade it for anything else.

The Sleeping Giant provincial park is a special place. You can't go there and not see wildlife. They can seem tame as they are used to being around people however never forget they are wild. Use your telephoto lenses. Don't ever leave food, coolers or even recycles out unattended you will be creating an open invitation for bears. If you... More

When travelling through Thunder Bay I recommend stopping at least once at the Sleeping Giant Provincial Park. The view is just breath taking and its something I have never seen before.
