Terrace Bay


Situated at the top of Lake Superior, Terrace Bay is known as Lake Superior’s playground. It is in the traditional territory of the Anishnabek (Ojibway) and the Métis. It is a charming community with nine sandy beaches, gorgeous waterfalls, extensive groomed trails, and a replica of the historic Terrace Bay Lighthouse. The township lies within the District of Thunder Bay, along the Trans-Canada Highway. It was originally a hydro-, pulp-, and paper-producing town in the mid-1900s, after which the area slowly grew in population. If you visit Terrace Bay, you must stop at the Aguasabon Falls and Gorge. These stunning falls cascade down 100 feet along a 2.6 billion-year-old rock facade. Neys Provincial Park is also located near Terrace Bay and the historic Prisoner of War camp. The surrounding landscapes are stunning and iconic and have inspired generations of painters, including the famous Canadian painters, the Group of Seven.
