“Beautiful Scenery”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

A nice place to camp and swim in the summer. Lots of activities for kids. A good place to go for a day trip from Thunder Bay...or to camp for a few days. Lots of deer to see on the drive there. Its close to Silver Islet and the "Blue" store. Great for outdoor adventures.

“Stunning landscape and a great road.”
Reviewed 4 February 2012

What an incredible park. From the sleepy town of Silver Islet at the end of the Sibley Road (a great winding road with plenty of wildlife in plain view), to the massive railway tressle running overtop of the entrance to the park, to the ample campgrounds suitable for families, couples or the gang, this is easily one of Ontario's best provincial parks.

“Best hiking trails around!”
Reviewed 2 February 2012

We stayed in the north campground away from the hustle and bustle of the main campground. There is no electricity hook up, but the peace and quiet is worth it! Deer were seen walking on the roads near our site. We biked right from our site onto the trails, and we hiked the full trip around the giant - make sure you wear a good pair of shoes!!! The views are spectacular! A must see!

“Worth the turn off the Trans Canada Hwy”
Reviewed 23 January 2012

You might miss the turnoff to Sleeping Giant Provincial Park at Pass Lake. True to northern Ontario tradition, ask a local to point you in the right direction; neon signage is not hanging from the trees. If you have the time, stop in at Karen's Kitchen for lunch (open spring/summer/early fall). Homemade soups and raspberry salads, pies served on the deck outside. Lovely! Another 30 minute drive - deer to greet you as you turn the bend - to the campgrounds, hiking trails and rustic Silver Islet Tea Room and "store". This is one of Canada's best kept secrets.
