Reservation for the powered sites during summer. Pay at campground at museum office, after hours there is a cash box. Power 115 volts stable. Sewer only at a Dump Station, easily accessible. The site has open areas for kid to play. Big Rig friendly. Convenient to Fort William Museum and fort. There are shuttles to take you to the fort or can walk a wilderness pathway to the fort. We camped at Fort William Historical Park RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very convenient to city of Thunder Bay (20 min). Located right on the grounds of Fort Williams Historical Park. Watch out for goose droppings as you walk the manicured lawn near the boat launch. Very quiet, on residential neighborhood. We camped at Fort William Historical Park RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Incredibly well done living history recreation in the historical park. Do experience it. Fantastic poutine at the Bowladrome in downtown Thunder Bay. Kakabeca Falls is worth the dtive to see. (Park entry fee not necessary as there is metered parking just to view the falls.) Not many RV service centers as we traveled across northern Ontario and Recreation World RV in Thunder Bay saved our trip with suberb service and having the necessary part.

The Historical Park is a lovely place for a lengthy stay surrounded by grass with a view of the Kaministiquia River from all sites, with one misunderstanding. References to "full service RV camping" should have been read more closely to realize individual sites do not have sewers, requiring that intended stays include picking up and driving to the dump site as necessary. Otherwise, staff was friendly and worked hard to keep us from having to change sites after we decided to extend our stay. The other utilities were fine and Wi-Fi worked consistently. The portapoddy we used occasionally was not emptied during our 10-day stay; otherwise cleanliness was excellent. The Fort William tour (teens of dollars) is not to be missed. Guides play 1815 roles and pretend to expect contemporaneous answers from tourists to questions such as "where did you dock your canoe." (Once we figured that out, we said we were from "a Spanish possession to the south called Florida".) Thunder Bay itself is a prosperous city with lots of major brand stores and, at least in July, frequent thunderstorms. We camped at Fort William Historical Park RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Kakabeka Falls is a nice provincial park with camping and trails. The falls produce a rainbow on a clear day with the sun to your back. Sleeping Giant provincial park has many trails, some ending at Lake Superior. Amethyst Panorama is North America's largest amethyst mine; visitors can work over tailings for their own stones. The Bight restaurant in downtown Thunder Bay has views of the bay and very good food. Fairburn's Machine Shop welded a broken plant holder at a reasonable price.

Fee cited is in Canadian dollars. Nicely landscaped campground in easy walking distance to Fort William Historical Site. Two sites share a water/power post but good spaces between pairs of rigs. Picnic table and fire pit for each site but hard to figure out whose was whose. Very open with lawns throughout. Nice breezes in the afternoons. Great to have 50 amp power. Our post had only one water spigot so need a splitter. Best free WiFi we've had in ages. Dump station nearby and easy to access. Only negatives were washrooms and showers very poorly maintained. And, remember to have mosquito repellent! Check in at on site Visitors centre on arrival for camping package. We camped at Fort William Historical Park RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Spend a day at Fort William Historical Site.

We rented a canoe for 3 hours ($15) from the Visitors Centre and had a great paddle on the river.

Being Canadian, a trip to the Terry Fox Monument was in order. Once there we realized it would have been easy to visit while towing out fifth wheel. Parking available. The site is beautiful, and moving.

Overall we are quite pleased with the park. Water and electric are good, wi-fi is excellent. Sites are grass and roads are paved, no dust! Negatives are sites are close together and share utility pedestal, and it is going to be difficult to exit site without driving on grassy area across road. The dump station is also backwards, after using it we will have to find a parking lot to make a u-turn in. Restrooms and showers are in trailers. We camped at Fort William Historical Park RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Agree with the quirky site arrangements in the previous post. We stayed for 2 nights and found the trailers used for showers and restrooms poorly maintained. The dump station is on the wrong side of the road, so you have to drive through the visitor center to turn around. Wifi was good and consistent, cell phone service was good. Main draw of the campground is the historical park which is well worth it. We camped at Fort William Historical Park RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The location is south of Thunder Bay. The campground is a grassy field at Fort William Historical Park. There are fresh water and hydro hook ups and a dump station. The utility tower is shared between 2 campers. There are 2 trailers; one has 2 toilets and the other has 3 showers. Water was plenty hot. The wifi is very good all over the campground. We also really enjoyed the Fort. A shuttle takes you over there from the visitor centre. We camped at Fort William Historical Park RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Located about 2-3 miles out of Thunder Bay within the historic Fort William park. Our site was on a grass field and at that time of the year only a dozen other RVs were there so plenty of space.

A great location for 2-3 days of sight seeing. We camped at Fort William Historical Park RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park at Fort William Historic site and not too far from the town of Thunder Bay. Really friendly staff, and the Fort is amazing. There is a dump station, and the wi-fi is good. Grass sites, and the lay out is a little different but good. I would stay here again. The rate is in Canadian dollars. We camped at Fort William Historical Park RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
