Something not right?

Description

Parking lot for small boats at the end of a gravel road, where some people fish. easy to reach. Next to the lake. beautiful view and really quiet.

No "no overnight parking" sign. We saw National Park's guards and they said it was okay.

-------

Parking pour petits bateaux au bout d'un chemin de gravier, où certaines personnes pêchent. Facile à atteindre. A côté du lac. Belle vue et vraiment calme. Pas de panneau "pas de stationnement de nuit". Nous avons vu les gardes du parc national et ils ont dit que tout allait bien.

So beautiful place, calm, quiet, with a poetic mood. A lot of Space for several campers/RV/trailers. No toilet, no bin, so keep your garbage with you.
Super great until the sunset… after, when the night is here the mosquitos army attacks you ! It’s not a few disturbing mosquitos… no, it’s an invasion, i never seen that before… so stay inside!

Great place with these old ships. You can hear a little the highway and the train.

But, the misquotes are horrible. This night was something like a nightmare. Even in our camper we had hundreds of these and sleeping well wasn't impossible.

Sweet spot on water & so interesting seeing all these old fishing boats in the parking lot. Note....make sure you don't park in front off the water pump & filling area from 7am till 7pm.

Stayed the night. No issues. Quiet and pretty spot. Mosquitoes real bad as very close to water. Lots of room for big rigs.

Report Check-In

Quiet place between old boats and the lake; you can see a lot of different birds, and the place is very peaceful.
There’s also a water tank.

I would totally recommend it if it was not infested by moskitoes ! They turned our night into nightmare…

The boat graveyard/hospital is a treat. Saw two bald eagles and gorgeous sunset on the shore. Plenty of bugs too. Shared with three other overlanders but plenty of space.

Au bout d’une route de gravelle, endroit vraiment calme pour y passer la nuit avec plusieurs types d’oiseaux sur le lac qu’on voit rarement. Il y a quelques pêcheurs qui y viennent.

Très belle endroit sur les rives du lac Supérieur. Il y avait deux autres véhicule pour la nuit. Ancien port de pêche avec des vieux bateau en cale sèche.

Endroit très tranquille sur le bord de l’eau , vue magnifique sur la baie du Lac Supérieur avec l’accès à de l’eau de source derrière la remorque blanche, remplie notre réservoir d’eau potable rapidement vu le bon débit. Un endroit où il fait bon s’arrêter.

absolutely beautiful spot. Saw a mama moose and calf on the dirt access road in. The cove is a bird paradise, saw pelicans, herons, tons of ducks and gulls, and a beaver. A few people fishing in the eve and morning but had it all to myself for the night. 5 star view!!!

All good ! Lots of room for many rv’s/vans. No real size limit

I have to thank everyone for writing a review here. Cause this truly is one of the best places I have stayed at in the last couple of months boondocking.

The tranquility, the lake, the ducks and the awesome abandoned boats setting a wonderful scene here.

We had no mosquitoes due to the weather. But I would suggest looking into the Thermacell Backpacker Mosquito Repeller it has been god sent, we've been in some places where even the dogs wanted to get out of here start this thing up 10 min later forcefield up hahaha

Everything people have said is true in my opinion. Except I don’t find the ships creepy haha

This was such an amazing camp spot! We even saw a freakin rainbow.

Totally loved this place, so cool the big old boats ashore here. Caught some nice pike from the docks. Black water hose where the tanks are has pure fresh spring water. Filled the camper. Amazing video I put on Instagram and YouTube of my stay here. Saw the Bald Eagle and a White Pelican. Too cool.

quiet place, arrived at dusk to one other vehicle here. Two more showed in the evening. lots of mosquitos. We felt safe here in our 23 foot motorhome.

Very quiet but absolutely infested with mosquitoes

2 recent conflicting reports, so we checked this place out. As described, some locals fishing. Good road in, and lots of place to park. We looked all over for a 'no overnight parking' sign, and couldn't see one anywhere, so we stayed the night.

Report Check-In

Nice quiet spot at night. Train nearby but heard it only twice, at 11pm and 4-5 am.
Pack in pack out, please. This is what makes those spots still available.
No "No Overnight" sign.
Spoke to a local, explained us that the owners are ok with overnight stay but ask to not climb in the boats for insurances liabilities.

Report Check-In

One of the best free campsites in ON. A bit of a pain to get to (don’t go to the actual conservation area - follow these coordinates), you have to turn at the fisheries and ocean sign and cross the tracks then take the road all the way to the end.
Locals stopping by here and there to fish and watch the sunset. Lots of wildlife (beavers bald eagles, fish etc), bring your bug spray!

Please please please pick up and pack out a bag of trash each overnight. Yes it’s probably the locals making the mess, but the RV community will get blamed for it and they’ll start putting up signs. There are no garbage receptacles here, which is part of the problem, so let’s help out and dispose of the waste one bag at a time 💚

This is nice hidden little spot. It was rainy off-season day, so almost no one around. Beautiful view.

As previously stated good quiet place to spend the night lots of local fishermen during the day stayed the night with three class a RV is without any problems

Report Check-In

This was a lovely spot.....there are slot-size Pike ( meaning you CAN'T keep them ) aplenty from the dock nearby.
We parked our 26 footer right at the shore and there was room for another smaller one beside us as well as room for 2 or 3 more behind.
Local people told me the ships have been dragged here to spend their final days...great backdrop for photos or simply to look at if, like me you are a ship-lover.
Al in all a lovely spot with room for perhaps 2 large RVs or 4 or 5 smaller class 'B's
Naturally no Wifi, potable water or bathrooms but perfect for the self-sufficient ones.

Stayed there for a night. Very quiet, dark and kinda eerie with the abandoned boats. Some local fishermen stayed there until about 11pm, then we had the place for ourselves. Great spot for bird watching!

Report Check-In

Super cool spot to spend an evening. Right on the water, eerie abandoned boats, and beautiful, bushes and bushes of raspberries. A few other campers shared the spot for a night but very quiet spot. Fresh water source.

Stayed here last night. Beautiful spot. lots of nature. Seen pelicans, otters and tons of other birds. Very quiet. Would have loved to stay longer! Another family stayed here too. People were fishing on the dock and used the boat ramp. No one bothered us.

Really nice and quiet spot with plenty of space for any sized camper. Fishers in the evening and then some in the morning.

Friendly place near a boat ramp. Abandonned boats gave it an eery feel. Right on the lake, grassy spot for our tent. Locals fishing on the dock, but no one bothered us. Amazing sunrise, voracious mosquitoes, very quiet.

Great spot! Like everywhere at this time, a lot of mosquitoes.. The rusty boats are stunning!

great stop
were in a 38ft fifth wheel and plenty of room
fresh strawberries for sale in season at the farm opposite the turn before you cross the train tracks.
Fresh spring water available at the parking area from a black hose that you pull out from the top of the white tank. Lovely water, very cold and endless amount constantly flowing.

Report Check-In

Great for a nights stay. People came for fishing in the evening and early in the morning to load boats but was fine and the fisherman were lovely. They let us know that there’s fresh water from the white tank on the yard all year round if you need to top up. We had lots of mosquitoes in the evening but put it down to time of year and heat.

Report Check-In

Nice quiet place by the lake. Boat graveyard was a bit weird at first but actually pretty neat. Lots of locals fishing; no one bothered us. Train at midnight and 7am but it did not bother us. Beware the mosquitos, bad place to find out you’ve got a breach.

quiet place, de saw pélican and bald eagle!!

... the place is quiet, but it’s not only a boat ramp, it is also a boat graveyard. We have to admit, the energy was a little strange.

Report Check-In

Good place for an overnight stay. Beautiful scenery you can observe pelicans. But in our case fisherman and people who launched their boats came very early. Maybe because of Sunday. But nobody bothered about us.
