Lake Superior Provincial Park is a Canadian treasure. The Park is nestled between the northern shoreline of Lake Superior and inland lakes and forests of the Algoma District in the Province of Ontario, Canada. The park's theme is: "Human response to a wild shoreline and rugged backcountry"
The park has three developed campgrounds at Crescent Lake, Agawa Bay, and Rabbit Blanket Lake. Agawa Bay and Rabbit Blanket have some flush toilets, and all three have outhouse style facilities. Agawa Bay and Rabbit Blanket also have showers, laundry facilities, and limited campsites with electricity. Travelers with everything from tents to motor homes are welcome. If you plan to stay at one of these popular campsites during the summer we recommend to call ahead and reserve your site due to the large number of travelers at this time of the year.
If you plan to only use the park during the day you must purchase a vehicle permit to be displayed on the dashboard of your vehicle. There are no other separate fees for usage (i.e.. hiking, canoeing etc.). You may choose to pay either for the whole day, or by the hour. You have full access to the park's trails and waterways for that day. The 'Day Use' picnic areas are located at Old Woman Bay, Katherine's Cove, Sand River, and Agawa Bay. You can pay your fees at the designated fee stations located within the park at Crescent Lake, Agawa Bay, Awausee Trail, Sinclair Cove Agawa Rock Pictographs, Sand River, Katherine's Cove, Orphan Lake, Mijinemungshing Lake, Rabbit Blanket Lake, and Old Woman Bay. You can also pay your fee at the Park Office located 3 kms South of Rabbit Blanket Lake Campground, or at one of two gatehouses at the Agawa Bay or Rabbit Blanket Lake.
INTERIOR & BACKCOUNTRY
There are 200 backcountry/interior campsites. Interior camping is open from May to October. First come first serve. Register your trip and pay your fees at Agawa, Rabbit Blanket or the Park Office. Stay at designated campsites that are indicated on the park map.
RULES & REGULATIONS
There is a can and bottle ban in effect at all times - glass and tin/aluminum cans and bottles or other containers made of these materials are NOT allowed in the interior/backcountry.
