Not a place to camp for free but the day use is definitely worth taking advantage of. Another Provincial park located right next door to batchawana bay park and just adjacent the Trans Canada Highway. Established in 1968, its just a continuation of same soft sand and the ridiculously clear cold waters of Lake Superior. A beautiful spot to stop and spend time contemplating life and beauty. A great place to just stop by and recharge your soul. three kilometers of sand and a 14 kilometer hiking trail is part of the appeal of this provincial park. This part of the great lake is known as the graveyard of the Great Lakes where the famous Edmund Fitzgerald sank in a storm. The hiking trail includes two lookout platforms offering amazing views of the Lake and Pancake Bay as well as secluded inland lakes and Pancake River Falls. I suspect camping is  legal straight across from the gift shop as well.
