Sparrow Lake Camp

4 sites · Tents126 acres · Severn Bridge, ON
Sparrow Lake Camp is situated on the southernmost tip of the majestic Canadian Shield.  The site is known to have been a campground for bands of the Huron people prior to the European intrusion.  It is considered probable that Samuel de Champlain, the first European to explore Huronia, spent a night on this site in the 17th Century.In 1892, what would become the west side of the current property was sold by pioneer Captain Thomas Stanton to Toronto's renowned Massey family to act as their summer resort.  The resort sported the main lodge, dining room, and cottages and was only accessible by train and steamer. From the onset, the Masseys used the site as a summer retreat for the Young Men's Bible League of the Central Methodist Church. Today, the property is a thriving summer camp that also offers overnight tent stays with stunning lake views.

The best camping near Beausoleil Island National Historic Site guide

Overview

About

Witness the long history of aboriginal use of Beausoleil Island, on Georgian Bay. The evolving landscape of the island includes evidence of ancient camps from time out of memory to a brief period as a reserve in the mid 19th century when the Anishinaabeg struggled to find a new way to live that was compatible with their traditions and with the rapidly growing Euro-Canadian settlement surrounding them.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Beausoleil Island National Historic Site is during the warmer months, from late spring to early autumn. This period offers the most pleasant weather for outdoor activities. Conversely, winter can be less inviting, with some services potentially reduced or unavailable.

Know before you go

  • Check the weather forecast before your visit to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
  • Be aware of any seasonal closures or service changes that may affect your trip.
  • Wear appropriate footwear for hiking and exploring the island's diverse terrain.
  • Remember to bring water and snacks, as options on the island may be limited.
  • Respect the natural habitat and historical sites by following all conservation guidelines.
