Neys Provincial Park


Neys Provincial Park is steeped in history, with one-of-a-kind geological formations and views of the truly wild lands near the shores of Lake Superior. Some of the darker parts of Canadian history are represented here, including a model of a former prisoner-of-war (POW) and the actual remains of POW Camp 100. During World War II, the Neys Camp 100 interned Japanese-Canadians and German POW, between 1941 and 1946. Along with its historic significance, this park also has beautiful natural views, including those of Pic Island. The view of this island enchanted and inspired the famous Canadian painters, the Group of Seven. The park incorporates the entire Coldwell Peninsula; a dramatic landscape with sub-arctic plants, and the elusive Woodland Caribou. Woodland Caribou are considered threatened in the province of Ontario, so this park provides an important protected habitat for the remaining populations. To top it off, this park has one of the finest sand beaches on Lake Superior’s north shore. The beach is perfect for novice and experienced paddlers alike, and is surrounded by a network of hiking trails. Make sure to bring your camera as you explore the many ecosystems, geological formations, and historic sites that Neys Provincial Park has to offer. You can also enjoy winter activities in this park. Please contact the park for more details.
