It’s no secret that Algoma’s largest provincial park, Lake Superior Provincial Park, is a must stop for any travellers passing through.
The park itself provides numerous hiking trails, campgrounds, canoe routes and of course, scenic vistas. We realize that not everyone is comfortable camping or even back-country camping.
If you are looking to enjoy the park for a few days, or even a week, there are accommodations outside the park located North and South.
There are accommodations that offer motel rooms or even cabins and some even include Provincial Park Passes in their packages.
Just South of the Park
Superior’s coastline is made of rugged rocky cliffs, pristine wilderness and beautiful sandy beaches. Batchawana was once an important fishing site for the Ojibwe (and still is today) and then the North West Company.
The Hudson’s Bay Company had an outpost and fishing station at the mouth of the Batchawana River. There are many ways to enjoy the beauty of the area: hiking, paddling, photography, fishing; and in the fall, the vibrant colours.
Montreal River Harbour
Montreal River Harbour is a small community at the mouth of the Montreal River. This section of Hwy 17 in Montreal River Harbour is best known for the winding uphill road.
This provides an incredible view of Lake Superior heading north or south. This location is a short distance from the park, approximately 10 minutes from the entrance and 30 minutes to middle of the park.
