Pancake Bay sign by the roadsideMap showing location of Pancake Bay

Pancake Bay Provincial Park was established in 1968 by Ontario Parks. It is a recreation-class Provincial Park created to help preserve the fragile beach dune ecology. Pancake Bay Provincial Park has one of the highest visitor rates of all the Provincial Parks in the north-east region, and the highest number of campsites. There are 325 campsites, including 160 with electricity. There are 3 comfort stations. (Note: The two RV Gypsies did not park their RV here.) It did cost to enter the park, even for a few minutes.

Quotes from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pancake Bay is a sheltered, south-facing bay on the eastern shore of Lake Superior, north of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. A beautiful sand beach lines the bay, part of which are within the park boundary. The bay is sand filled and shallow. This feature is responsible for warming the lake water providing pleasant swimming, but the two RV Gypsies did not swim in the lake this time. Ancient beach ridges are visible more inland. The ecology of the region is characteristic of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence transition forest, but is a northern shelter for more southerly flora and fauna.
