Batchawana Bay is nestled along the eastern coast of Lake Superior. Its name means “turbulent waters” in Ojibwa, but the bay is far from that on a calm, quiet evening or a bright, sunny day. Batchawana Island, which you can see from the shore, can be accessed by canoe or kayak on just such a day.
Batchawana Bay is a great place to fish, with the rivers feeding into Batchawana Bay offering an excellent spring and fall Rainbow and Salmon runs. Pike flourish in the Batchawana River along with the Waleye.
If you’re a nature lover you can go for a bike, hike or by ATV on the trail out back of the park that will take you for unlimited miles into the wilderness. Be sure to take your binoculars and camera for some bird watching, wild life sightings or just to check the view of some far off mountain top.
Have a quiet, peaceful campfire or go for a stroll, bike ride, or even 4 wheeling into the wilderness out back, into a world of waterfalls, rivers, creeks, wild berries, wild flowers, wildlife, fishing, exploring, and way more than enough fresh air. Enjoy!!!!!
Across the road are miles of sandtastic beach for swimming, canoeing or kayaking. This is the best sand beach that I know of for kids.
