What You'll Like:

The islands are flat and low-lying, located in Lake Superior approximately seven kilometres south of Corbeil Point, the easterly point of Pancake Bay Provincial Park. Jacobsville sandstone, which is uncommon in Ontario, is the bedrock exposed on the islands and surrounding shoals. An outcrop of the sandstone on North Sandy Island contains some of the best representation of this feature in Ontario. The flora and fauna of the park is representative of small sandy islands in Ecodistrict 5E-13. White birch with some balsam fir is the dominant island forest ecotype. Small patches of yellow birch, red maple, sugar maple and eastern white cedar are present on both islands.

Location: Approximately 40 km northwest of Sault Ste. Marie and 7 km due south of Pancake Bay Provincial Park.

Park Facilities: There are no visitor facilities available.
