Why visit Pancake Bay?

The beach is simply incredible. With more than 3 km of beautiful sandy shoreline and Caribbean blue waters, it is the perfect spot to cool off in the summer or catch a beautiful northern sunset.

The park boasts two trails with over 15 km to explore. Head on out along the Lookout Trail to enjoy a panoramic view of Lake Superior.

On the trails, keep a lookout for moose, wolves, Black Bears and birds such as Bald Eagles, Common Loons, Sandhill Cranes, Cedar Waxwings, and forest warblers like redstarts.

Join park staff for a Discovery Drop-in program during the months of July and August. Bring along your Discovery Activity Book (or pick one up at the Drop-in), and use the equipment and materials provided to explore the park, observe plants and animals, and discover the wonders of nature.

Located along the historic paddling route of the voyageurs, and now along the TransCanada Highway, the park is only a short drive from many regional attractions.

A huge “thank you” to everyone involved in this project

In March of 2018, Pancake Bay Provincial Park and St. Mary’s College Secondary School worked together on this project. It was a unique opportunity for students participating in the “high skills specialist” major program to get some hands-on experience.

Building began in September, led by construction teacher Eugene Pagliaro and completed by current and previous students over the school year. Many classes, afternoons, and weekends were spent building this beautiful camp cabin.

Jaden Ryyppo — a student at St Mary’s College Secondary School and a returning maintenance worker at Pancake Bay — explains, “This experience has provided me with a better understanding of interior and exterior carpentry as well as planning. I am extremely grateful to have been part of this project, and I hope that campers enjoy this unique cabin!”

We hope to see you soon!
