After staying here for a couple of days, this park turned out to be one of our favourite Ontario provincial parks. From the friendly and efficient gate house and visitor centre staff to the breathtaking location, this place has it all. The campgrounds are several km off the main highway, so no worries about highway traffic. The odd train went by, but it wasn't distracting. The park has four campgrounds. Our site was in Area 1, the first one past the entrance. It was a sandy and unlevel pull-through that required some levelling, but had a great view of the lake. The only hookup was electric which required an extension. Water fill up and dump station are between the gate house and the campground. They can be accessed in either direction. There were some trees between sites that gave some privacy. A table and a fire grill were included on site. No OTA TV or Wi-Fi, but satellite TV is possible from many water view sites. There are several hiking trails that takes one to lookouts, dunes, and even the remains of a very old volcano. This park was the location of a WWII prisoner of war camp and we were fortunate to be here when a guided hike took us to the remains of this camp. The beach here is one of the cleanest I've ever encountered. No fast food wrappers found here. The waters in the bay were fairly smooth and great for kayakers. The water is cold though and I wouldn't want to fall in. Small boats such as kayaks and canoes can be launched from the beach, but anything bigger has to go to the boat ramp near the last campground furthest away from the entrance. If I was ever in this area again, I would most definitely stay here again. We camped at Neys Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

On the North shore of Lake Superior. Stayed here in late June, bring your bug spray the mosquitoes and black flies are aggressive 24/7. No dogs on the beach in Section 1. Electric (20 and 30 Amp) service only. Potable water and dump station at entrance to campground. Marginal Verizon service, no Wifi, no OTA TV channels. Easy access for bigger RVs. The train track crossing is rough. Electric connection is at the real of the site, bring extra cable. We camped at Neys Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sept 14, Neys Provincial Park, Marathon, Ontario, Canada -site 13 in the #1 loop looking out to Lake Superior, dump station, Visitor Center, $42 with electric, bathhouse with showers, beaches This campground is located right off HWY 17 along the north shore of Lake Superior between Thunder Bay and Marathon, Ontario. Once you turn on the park roads it is another two miles down to the campground. There are four sections to this park. Sections 1-3 are located along the shore and many of the sites have electric. Section 4 is more inland and on the Little Pic River. There are seasonal sites here during the summer. We stayed for one night on our way from Thunder Bay to WAWA and it was first come because the park was closing the following week. We self- registered around 3pm and chose a site and within the hour most of the lake sites were taken. The beach in front of section 1 is a no dog beach but 2 and 3 pets are permitted. This campground is very busy during the summer months and reservations might be needed. Hwy 17 east is a scenic route going up and down hills and driving along the northern point of Lake Superior. Beautiful drive and a great stay. We camped at Neys Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Area one has many fine pull through sites. Beware of dead tree branches that will poke through side of RV with ease. Park is very uptight about the dead logs on the beach, you cannot remove them. Also got scolded by park warden for picking wild blueberries obviously they have nothing better to do. Seasonal campers do feel that they have the right to walk or ride through your campsite to access beach. We camped at Neys Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed in Area 1 best for larger rvs especially with slide outs.Access to sites all over park is scary as the dead trees along the roads can easily rip into your roof or sidewall.Like all parks in Ontario roads are not very wide for todays bigger rvs and the parks wont do any cutting of branches.Turns at the end of each road too tight as well as trees too close at many sites Beautiful sight when weather is good but cold when not sunny. We camped at Neys Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is nice little provincial park on the shores of Lake Superior. We reserved online, yet had to re-register upon arrival with the person at the kiosk asking all the questions that I had answered on the online registration form - such inefficiency! Waterfront sites are quite wonderful, though tend to be quite windy. Sites one row back from the water are better suited for sitting outside and having a campfire. And if you enjoy late sunsets, this is the place to be in June when sunset is after 10:15pm. There are laundry facilities (wash $1.50, $2.00 dryer). Fill up your freshwater tank at the dumpstation as you cannot attach a hose to the water spigots through the campground. And good luck finding the location of their garbage cans. Rogers but not Bell has phone service within the park. The Lookoff Trail provides a nice view of Lake Superior. I don't remember the price, and am unable to submit this review unless a price is given, so the $30 campground fee likely is an error. We camped at Neys Provincial Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Camped in area 1,best for big rigs,Beautiful view of lake,large open sites,showers and restrooms very clean.Road into area 1 very skinny with many dead tree branches that can tear up your roof or scatch the sides of your trailer.Beautiful long beach but covered in dead trees,be careful where you walk.Lots of history about campground so visit the information building.

This is a unique opportunity to park overlooking Lake Superior. If you are a big rig be sure to reserve either a pull thru or Lot 25e as most other sites are very treed and tight. Site 25e is the largest site in this loop and is open for satellite reception and has lots of privacy and a great view. Park is isolated and 15 miles from Marathon. Come for the view and some hiking if the weather is nice. We camped at Neys Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

This park is closer to Marathon. It is a jewell of the OPP system. We loved it and plan to visit it next year, another park close by would be Rainbow Falls but I would recommend the lake section past the main entrance west toward Thunder Bay. Lake front sites are the best, beautiful views and the best sunsets I've seen over the lake. We camped at Neys Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

A very nice park, with sites right on Lake Superior, a hidden gem! Noisy at night, neighbors partying till after 1am. They have an interesting visitor's center and evening programs. It is worth the drive. We camped at Neys Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

The previous review gave a good overview. I would add that at the east end of the long sandy beach (too cold for most people) there is a rocky point which makes for an interesting hike. On windy days with the waves crashing over the rocks you would think you were on the East Coast. Very nice park with good sites for large rigs in area 1. We camped at Neys Provincial Park in a Motorhome.

Park is on a beautiful section of shoreline of Lake Superior, bounded on the west by the gorgeous Little Pic river. Sites in the A section have nice views of Superior and are mostly for larger rigs. Electric sites in the other loops are mostly good, but some sites are small. Most have good privacy, though. The only drawback to this park is that the cross-country railway runs along the border of the park and train noise can be heard occasionally. We camped at Neys Provincial Park in a Tent Trailer.
