Something not right?

Description

An amazing area to overland with a fair amount of space with room for a nice campfire. Since it’s right by the river, it’s also an amazing place to fish too. The entrance is messy. if you have a very large over-landing vehicle I don’t think you’d be able to make it through the trees. If you can’t fit, I’d recommend parking at the entrance. The entrance is a bit hidden so the best way to enter is heading west and it is on the left just before the Wolf River Bridge. If you can visit this place you definitely should because it is probably the best place to camp for hundreds of kilometers.

Nice little spot along the river. The smell is very bad though, don’t know what happened to the river but there are dozens of dead fish everywhere in the river. Road noise but nothing that bothered us. Access is fine but if you’re more than 2,50m (8 feet) high, you night hit the branches

sweet spot along the river just off the hiway.

Sand spot on the edge of a river. the access road is just before the bridge. Be careful to keep to the left, the path is a little steep. There is room for ten vehicles. Several fishermen take advantage of the current of the river to catch fish. We were 3 vehicles that evening: a dodge caravan, and 2 ''small'' RVs.

The road to the site is quite clear - east side of the road on the north side of the bridge. It is a very hard turn if your coming from the south (we had to 3 point turn which was awkward). Little rough on the narrow track in but lots of space. We parked on the pebbles after seeing the comment about being stuck in the sand.

The washed out road is repaired. It’s tight for bigger rigs. The spot itself is beautiful for being so close to the highway. But you have a lot of highway noise.
So if you have a bit more time and 4x4 the spot at the lake NW of here is better IMO.

road was not washed out, spot became very accessible for people Who knows how to get there. Beautifull not to buggy and a place to swim

Report Check-In

Very sketchy entrance, sharp right if headed FROM Thunder Bay. Best to turn around to approach from the other direction. Bank falling apart and very tight even for small truck.. be careful as the ground is a sinking sand and I got stuck no noticing it in the dark. Otherwise it’s safe and has cell coverage just watch out for mosquitos

Difficile d’accès mais ça vaut la peine! Beeaucoup de moustiques!! L’eau est bonne pour la baignade

Nice spot directly located on cold river. Still bit snowy but no problem with 4x4. Road is noisy during evening but ok during night. In the late evening a truck came by and stayed the night. They threw stones in the river while we were trying to sleep (we couldn’t see anyone). In the early morning they left. Little bit suspicious.

I was looking for a place for a picnic lunch and stumbled across this little gem. What a perfect tent location! Good for camper Van's and RTT also. If it wasn't October, I'd be on that rope swing! Looks very fishy too. There are a couple great walk-in tent sites 100' downstream too.

You will have to approch from the north to make the tight turn in at the guardrail.

Highway very noisy for a tent, otherwise great. even took a refreshing swim brrrr.

Perfect spot for a night close to a river. But the highway is noisy!

Amazing. My 24 ft motorhome fit down the windy road and was totally worth it. Seam in the river - the salmo are just about to start running, so it will be even more amazing in a Cooke of weeks.

Stayed here. It’s a great spot lots of space for multiple vehicles and tents. The road in is hard to spot. If you’re coming from Thunder Bay it’s just after the bridge on the right hand side and a sharp turn. The road in is quite tight due to a partial washout. Wolf River runs right behind the camping spot. There are some fire pits there. Nice and sandy, mostly flat. Still near the TCH so you’ll hear the traffic a little bit. Feels like you’re not near the road. Lots of garbage. Do better people.

This is such a beautiful spot! Don’t be put off by the gravelly, pot-holed road - it’s worth the detour.

Perfect rest stop. Thank you ioverlander!
The road in was very short… no need for 4x4. We came in with our econoline e350… no issues at all.
Water is fabulous.

Report Check-In

Great spot to overnight near the TCH but far enough off to feel like you are away from it. You can still hear big trucks on the bridge but can’t see them. OThe entrance is 4x4 recommended, at least make sure you have some clearance.

flooded right now. usually a great spot I stop at cross country every year

super nice, we arrive late and passed other vans / campers so we took last spot by the water. as mentioned, we barely cleared the trees but made it, 4x4 suggested, we had pickup truck with cab. also as mentioned, quiet fishermen were fishing when we awoke at 630

Road into larger camping area is tight due to the the river bank sloughing off. We opted not to try it in our Tundra with a camper. Narrow vehicles could still access it. We camped in the first flat area. Nice spot but very close to the highway, so highway noise all night. Great swim hole too! One other camper stayed in the same area but enough space and privacy to not bother each other.

this is an amazing spot that you will not want to miss. There's lots of room for numerous vehicles. We were in a Ford Transit high roof and there was another group with a truck camper.

gorgeous- bottomed out a bit on the way in but worth it for a level spot to sleep by a river to dip in at dawn.

Report Check-In

Nice spot. It is as most people but the mosquitoes in the evening were intense. spent a good couple of hours swatting them in the camper before comfortably being able to go to sleep.

nice place. made it in with a dodge caravan minivan.

Excellent place for pedal bike or adventure motor bike as u can ride 100 feet down stream to a camping spots for 2 or 3 small tents

amazing spot with beautiful flowing river and a snady beach area. pretty wide open so hard to find shade until evening and also close to the highway so there some sound.

Superbe endroit sur le bord de la rivière, chemin très étroit nous avons dû retenir les branches pour ne pas grafigner le campeur. Beaucoup de pêcheurs locaux à cette période de l’année.

Report Check-In

we stayed here one night and shared it with another vehicle. beautiful spot, a bit rough getting in. we stayed on a Friday and early Saturday there were about 5 people here fishing. definitely recommend, just know it might be noisy in the morning.

when arriving, continue down the suspicious looking path. if you don't think you could fit 5+ vehicles, you haven't driven far enough!

Sorry, correction: In my note I said approach from the west. No. Approach from the westbound lanes (meaning: approach from the East, in fact!).

Report Check-In

Definitely approach from the west. It’s narrow and bumpy on way in - not for large rigs. My van was brushed by trees on both sides. But once in it’s well worth it. Stream sounds and trees all around - but yes there is definitely noise from the highest above. Still, it’s great.

Report Check-In

Very close to the highway, but ideal for a 4x4 or AWD rig, if it’s wet it could be a risky entrance for a 2WD vehicle but not impossible. Plenty of space for multiple vehicles.

Incredible spot. Beautiful, many spots, has a rope swing and a little homemade dock. There were 2 other groups there and we all ate togeher around the fire. All good people! If you meet someone named Noles, tell him Eli says hi. He camps there often.

Report Check-In

Very near a relatively busy hwy. The site is really nice, though a bit of garbage and toilet paper around (how do people not understand!!! bury, burn or pack out your tp!!)

locals swimming and fishing spot, but good camp spots tucked out of the way around a sketchy corner.

I'm sure there are much nicer, much quieter spots to be found rather than this. Works fine for a night though.

Report Check-In

Lots of space for vans here, would not recommend bringing any vehicle too big. The entrance is right at the bridge on the left while driving west.

Some noise from the highway, but a good spot for 1 night. Looks like some locals put up a rope swing for swimming too!
