I found this place on the internet and was THRILLED with what was there. The owner and staff were warm and welcoming. The food was healthy, plentiful and yummy. The rooms were well maintained and clean. And the property had lots of lovely nooks to "drink in" the sun, the sound of the waves, the sounds of nature. I loved... More

We were riding a motorcycle from Toronto to Vancouver. Booked a room and dinner at Rock Island Lodge although we knew it would be tight. It's about 7 hrs from the Chi-Cheemaun ferry that docked at South Baymouth at 11AM. Got there 6:30Pm, straight off the bike and sat down to buffet dinner with other guests and locals from Wawa...

The Rock Island Lodge is a simple and relaxing establishment that, although near Wawa, is off the beaten path (in a good way!). The property is on Lake Superior and offers beautiful views in every direction. The owners are friendly without being intrusive. Breakfast is included in the nightly rate and is healthy, delicious and plentiful. Dinner is available for... More

Location, Location, Location. What a beautiful spot on the north shore of Lake Superior, just north of the Lake Superior Provincial Park. The room was comfortable, but not fancy. The breakfast was fine. Good place to kayak, paddle board, canoe, hike or just sit and watch the water. The owners were friendly.

Not much elements in the town of Wawa, so the dinners were a really good deal. The lodge is on a rocky point, with... More
