At the Northern end of lake superior Provincial Park is old woman's Cove. If you are going North from Sault Ste. Marie or South of Vava, it always requires attention on arrival. With proximity and affordable Parking for everyone, it makes a great place for a day trip along the Superior. There are no campsites in this area of the Park, and the Rabbit Blanket Lake Campground is located nearby.
A long sandy beach populated by driftwood surrounds you with the true beauty of Algoma in old woman's Bay. Looking at the horizon, the old woman's face can be seen within 200 meters of the rocks on the left. Horseshoe Bay faces the main body of the Superior to the North, leading you to the entrance island. With easy access, old woman's Cove makes for a great place all year round for picnics, sightseeing, fishing, even swimming, if you don't mind the cold!
