Just a word of caution here, the path down to the stone beach from the sites is incredibly steep and dangerous on a dry day. A rainy day, be extra careful. You don’t want to spend your free time in the hospital emergency room. It’s about sixty kilometres away as well, so think about it. Watch your pets and children closely here. This is a Lake Superior Provincial Park Addition on maps, but I’ve never seen a Ranger ever pass by, and am not even sure what that really means. It is frequently used by a highway construction company to store its heavy equipment. (this year the machinery is being stored there again and a porta-potty was on site 2021) This is another spot that has been reclaimed by other travellers, and is frequently used for camping. A few campsites are cleared with firepits, and a larger clearing in a field is available if you have more than one group camping together. You could easily park any sized motor home or trailer there as well. Absolutely zero facilities so be prepared to carry out everything, and dealing with your toilet habits. A really fast creek empties across the beach after dropping down eighteen hundred metres from just past the highway. One end of the beach is just past the Alona Scenic Lookout and huge outcropping of basalt blocks the other end. If I had to guesstimate, I’d say it’s about two kilometres of stone beach along the shore of the largest and coldest Great Lake. Just walking across all that loose stone and climbing up and down that slope is great exercise. You’ll need your whole body to climb. Should I be redundant and describe the fist size rocks in their crazy assortment of colours? Nah, that'd just be repetitive...
