I camped for 2 nights at the Marie Louise Lake campground. The campground is much like what is found at every other park - sites are close together without much privacy. Some sites do have more trees between them, but most are not very private at all. Bathrooms were clean and showers worked well. The visitor center is very nice,... More

The park is gorgeous and has a wide variety of trails to explore. I'm admittedly used to the U.S. park system (both state and nat'l), but there seemed a real dearth of information about the park. The website didn't note that its two scenic driving routes were closed, and small pamphlet on the trail system is pretty light on information,... More

We took a detour for the day and spent the day at this beautiful park. The trails and sights were amazing and my kids loved it. We were all tired at the end of the day and got some great pictures. The only thing we would not have done was decide to take the road to the scenic look out... More

If you are in the area, this is well worth a visit, but be sure to allow a full day at least. Many of the trails are not for the faint-hearted so be prepared and bring proper kit and supplies. Bear are a common sight and we have seen mountain lions (Cougars) on two occasions. Views from the mesas are... More

Sleeping Giant Provincial Park is a great place to go if you like hiking. There are many trails, of varying length and difficulty. You could do a few hours with children, or a few days of camping and hiking. Our group hiked the easy, if long, old logging road through the forest to Tee Harbour and then a bit beyond,... More

We knew that Sleeping Giant Provincial Park was a bit of a distance off of the Trans-Canada Highway, but we figured the extra bit of travel would be worth the time. Unfortunately what we found was disappointing. While the park had vast amounts of land, trees, and plenty of wildlife, the camping area was far too open (lack of trees... More

We spent a day hiking in Sleeping Giant Provincial Park. Some of the access points had barricades on them on the day we were visiting however, we were still able to hike the Garner Lake Trail, which we chose because it was noted to be a good Moose sighting area. We saw 3 Black Bears which was terribly exciting but... More
