With ample parking, this is a delightful place to spend a day with friends and family. It is nestled among giant red and white pine trees, there are tables, grills, and benches to view the spectacular sunsets over the greatest body of freshwater in the world. Long, sandy beaches are a favorite to sand castle builders and swimmers!
Watch for huge freighters plying the waters of Lake Superior on their way to and from the locks at Sault Ste. Marie. Another favorite pastime is to walk along the beach looking for agates. There is an enormous clarity of beautiful stones and water polished ricks, much to the delight of amateur rock collectors and children of all ages.
