Everyone should have Big Lake Superior on their bucket list. Superior’s coast has beautiful sandy beaches that are sheltered by rugged, rocky cliffs and pristine wilderness. The waters of Lake Superior are clear and clean making it perfect for swimming, canoeing or kayaking.
There are 3 provincial parks located on Highway 17: Batchawana Bay (day-use), Pancake Bay and Lake Superior. Enjoy a day at the beach to picnic and swim, or hike one of the many trail systems in the parks. Popular trails are the Coastal Trail at Lake Superior Provincial Park, and the Lookout Trail at Pancake Bay.
The Lookout Trail overlooks the stretch of Superior known as the “graveyard of the Great Lakes” where the Edmund Fitzgerald sank in a fierce November storm in 1975. The many inland lakes and rivers offer excellent fishing for walleye, muskie, northern pike, smallmouth bass and trout.
