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.
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.
Guest Rooms Overlooking Lake Superior
Become a “homme or femme de nor” (man or woman of the north) when you stay at Voyageurs’ Lodge & Cookhouse, overlooking Batchawana Bay. Enjoy the sunrise or sunset from the large viewing windows of your room. Begin your day with a hearty breakfast at the Cookhouse, and finish the day with a voyageur inspired meal of bannock and beans or a savoury tortiere.

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.
Places to Stay: Twilight Resort
Just North of the Park
The town of Wawa is the hub for vacationers and best known for the famous Canada Goose Monument that welcomes travellers on Trans Canada Hwy 17 and Hwy 101. The Goose marks the opening of the last link of the Lake Superior section of Hwy 17 more than 50 years ago. It’s a destination for paddlers, hikers, fishermen, and snowmobilers. Learn stories of the First Nations people, local historical characters and visitors like pianist Glenn Gould, and the members of the Group of Seven like A.Y. Jackson.
Places to Stay: Beaver Motel, Bristol Motel, Parkway Motel, Rock Island Lodge, Wawa Motor Inn
