September 15 - Lake Superior Provincial Park, Agawa Bay Campground, over 200 sites along Lake Superior, site 146 unserviced ($41) but electric sites are available, dump station, Visitor Center, a long beach This campground is in Lake Superior Provincial Park along the scenic hwy 17 which runs along Lake Superior from the north down the east side. The park is huge with hikes, walks, coves, beautiful beaches, lakes, pictographs and three campgrounds. We stayed in Agawa Bay Campground in the southern part of the park with sites located along a beach on Lake Superior. The northern part of the park is just south of the town of WaWa. WaWa is where 17 and 101 meet and it is named after a wild goose so at the Visitor Center there is a huge Goose overlooking the bay. Great place for information and some exhibits. Youngs General Store is a must stop there. At the campground there is also a Visitor Center with some great exhibits about the history of Lake Superior. Our site was facing the lake but not considered waterfront which they charge more for. Ontario Provincial Parks do not have signs on the road telling you when the park is coming up and if you don't see the small sign at the entrance to their parks you will miss the turn offs. The roads in their parks are very difficult to drive and we are only 25.2 feet. There was a RV that was over 30 feet the night we stayed but I would not want to try to drive the narrow roads in the campgrounds with a huge RV. This was a one night stop for us and we really enjoyed listening to the waves and looking out to see the lake. If in the area we would return to stay here. The park was closing the first week in October. We camped at Lake Superior Provincial Park - Agawa Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed one night in the North Campground, in a site that backed onto the highway (yes, it's the Trans-Canada and trucks do go by throughout the night). Site was large, beautiful and private. Thankfully had extension cord for my 30AMP as the plug was at the front of the site - but I knew this when I booked online. The park itself is stunning, right on Lake Superior. The site was on the side "away" from the lake, but it was still only 100 steps to the Lake. In terms of view, this park is a jewel, and worth every penny. Like all Ontario Parks, you need to fill your with water on the way in if you want, and dump on the way out - but that's not an issue whatsoever. We camped at Lake Superior Provincial Park - Agawa Bay Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Best to do your shopping well before you get to the park, as there are a few camp stores somewhat nearby, but they're pricier with fewer total conveniences. Do not try to equate the Ontario Park System with US State parks - they're very different in goals, and also in price.

Beautiful location but water wasn't working well so washrooms weren't functional and could not fill trailer. We used the pit toilets which were okay. We camped at Lake Superior Provincial Park - Agawa Bay Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This campground has extremely narrow roads and tight turns. We were able to navigate our 35' MH with a toad, but I wouldn't want to do it in a 45' one. The exterior ring road is wide enough, but if your have to go down one of the interior roads it would be very challenging if not impossible. Fortunately we were there in October with very few other people in the park, and we had our choice of sites so we picked one that was right off the main ring road and easy to access.

The campground is right off of Hwy 17, and is noisy during the day, but it seemed to quiet down at night.

The beach area is beautiful and the sunset was awesome. With no other lights around, viewing the stars at night was incredible. There is a very nice visitor center at the park with friendly staff.

If you need electrical be sure to have at least 75' of power cord as the outlets are for two sites and set between sites so a long cord is needed for most sites. We camped at Lake Superior Provincial Park - Agawa Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

Beautiful place, we really liked it. Pretty pricey, but I'd still come back. We were on the last row, so Highway 17 was only 50 yards away, but the highway noise didn't bother us. The beach is very nice and clean. We camped at Lake Superior Provincial Park - Agawa Bay Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Plenty of good hikes and sight seeing around here. We didn't take it all in unfortunately, as we had to leave after just one night. I really want to get back up there, so scenic.

My family loved the hiking trails and the clean site that had privacy. Not much luck on the fishing but still a blast! We camped at Lake Superior Provincial Park - Agawa Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very expensive campground considering the lack of services. Wi-Fi is available in the visitor centre only. It's a beautiful location on the shores of Lake Superior, but the roads are very narrow and rough, sites although separated by forest, are small and difficult to get into, and the washrooms were old, dirty, and smelly. There are clean modern toilets in the visitor centre. We camped at Lake Superior Provincial Park - Agawa Bay Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The rate paid included the online reservation fee. While it might seem high for the services provided, the venue is really wonderful. Our site was well sheltered by mature conifers. We were able to reach the 30 amp power with our onboard cord, but on some sites an extension cord is needed (they loan cords at the check-in office). The trees seem close on the drive into the site, but if you know what you are doing with your rig (ours is 30') it is not difficult. Great beach, awesome scenery and a really worthwhile visitor center. Would love to stay here again. We camped at Lake Superior Provincial Park - Agawa Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

This provincial park is on the lake and a few sites have really nice views. Most of the sites don't have electricity. The elec sites are mostly set up for trailers and smaller vehicles. While there are a few sites for motorhomes 32-34 feet, there aren't many, and the trees are difficult to maneuver around. The staff could not have been better in assisting us. Our site was hugely unlevel and almost 50 feet away from the electric post and unreachable with my power cord. Yet, the staff worked hard to get us moved to an acceptable site and we appreciated that especially on a holiday weekend. The attraction here is the lake shore and the staff. The sites need reworking and should be better for this price. We camped at Lake Superior Provincial Park - Agawa Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

This park doesn't have much to offer except a stunning view of Lake Superior. Nevertheless it was worth the overnight stay to be able to walk along the pristine beach and stroll along the wooded areas. The sites are very tight and you can't get in any vehicle combination greater than 36 feet. However, we were able to squeeze in our 24' motorhome and our 8' Smartcar toad quite easily into our pull-through site. There is only electrical hookups (15 and 30 amp) and no water or sewer hookup. There was a fresh water spigot nearby. Our little puppy wanted badly to romp in the lake surf, however no dogs are allowed on the beach. We would stay here again in the future. We camped at Lake Superior Provincial Park - Agawa Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

It's a bit expensive for a "state park" with just dry or electric-only hookups, but the location can't be beat. Our site was literally 20 feet from the beach and it's a gorgeous beach for sunsets! Sites are small and anything larger than a Class B/C motorhome will have a hard time driving between all the pine trees. But the campground facilities are well-maintained and there's a wonderful new visitor's center there too. We camped at Lake Superior Provincial Park - Agawa Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground stretches along the lake such that about 1/3 of the campsites are next to the beach and the others are close. The beach is sandy but many areas this year were covered in small stones which made it difficult to walk in bare feet. The water of Lake Superior is very cold but the views and sunsets are great. The lake can be perfectly flat some days and other days there will be 3 ft waves - very impressive. The electric pull thru sites are not very level and some are very narrow. The roads are also narrow - about 11 ft between trees so it is not possible to turn long trailers or motor homes into many of the sites that are classified as large. Be very careful entering this park with large RV units. We camped at Lake Superior Provincial Park - Agawa Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

When we stayed at this campground the bugs were horrible, but we came prepared with bug spray/lotion so they were tolerable. We stayed at a site facing the lake, and the sunsets were incredible! The campground has wonderful hiking trails and nice beaches. They have a beach for the dogs which is a nice idea so you can sit out on the beach and watch the sunset with your fur baby. Our site was very narrow so that we could not put our awning out. Most sites are this way because of the pine trees. It is very pretty here but not much privacy. Bathroom facilities were very nice and so was the visitors' center. We would camp here again! We camped at Lake Superior Provincial Park - Agawa Bay Campground in a Motorhome.

Terrific sandy beach campground on Lake Superior with fantastic sunsets! All sites are shaded by tall pine trees, but there is very little ground cover so minimal privacy between sites. While some sites might be accessible by bigger rigs, most are too small. Great facilities, including a new, modern visitor's center. Dogs are prohibited from the main beach in front of the campsites, but there is a nice section of sandy beach directly north of the campsites that allows dogs. If camping in a tent or tent trailer, traffic noise may be an issue as the Trans-Canada highway borders the east side of the campground. We camped at Lake Superior Provincial Park - Agawa Bay Campground in a Tent Trailer.
