This is the most popular of the 3 campgrounds in Lake Superior Provincial Park, and with reason. Pretty much every site has a view (although distant) of Lake Superior. It was very busy, and I would suggest reserving a site in advance. As one would expect with a lakeside campground, the sites closest to the water are best. The sites furthest away from the water are also closer to highway 17, which is shockingly close to the campground. Some people might have an issue with the hwy traffic noise (lots of transport trucks). This was probably the only negative aspect of the park. Most of the trees in this part of the park are tall pines, and therefore don’t provide much privacy between sites, but do allow everyone a great view of the water. We enjoyed our site, and the washroom facilities were clean. For us the best part was the easy walk access to the beach. Agawa Bay is rocky, but the kids didn’t seem to mind (some might opt for water shoes). The water can be rough, and the shoreline drops off quickly, so be aware with little ones. As most know the water temperature of Lake Superior can be a wee bit chilly. It was an abnormally hot week so we didn’t mind cooling off.

Agawa Bay is by and far my favourite park in the province. That park holds a different feeling than any other. I have brought multiple friends there and withputbsaying anything, brought them down on to the beach at Agawa Bay for a sunset and just waited for their response. After several moments of stunned silence, always some form of ‘wow’ follows. You can feel the history in your bones and the cold waters are soul cleansing!
