Sleeping Giant

Backcountry Camping

There are approximately 40 backcountry campsites at Sleeping Giant. These sites are scattered throughout the park’s trail system and offer camping experiences on the shores of Lake Superior and nestled within the rugged interior of the park. All campsites have designated fire pits and some sites have toilets nearby.

Backcountry campsites cannot be reserved and are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Backcountry camping permits are required. Animal Proof food lockers are available at Sawyers Bay, Lehtinens Bay and Tee Harbour.

Car Camping

Sleeping Giant has 200 campsites at the Marie Louise Lake Campground, almost half of which have electrical service. All campsites feature designated fire pits and picnic tables and are close walking distance to water taps and vault toilets. Some campsites are designed specifically for tents while others are best suited for small or large recreational vehicles. For visitors who want a more secluded camping experience ten sites are located on the west shore of Marie Louise Lake.

Group Camping

Two group campsites are available at Sleeping Giant. The Small Group Site can accommodate up to 25 people and the Large Group Site can accommodate up to 50 people.

Both group campsites offer electricity and water taps and vault toilets are located nearby. The group sites are a short walking distance to the public beach.
