Photo: Aerial View Sleeping Giant Sibley Peninsula Lake Superior Ontario

Sleeping Giant Provincial Park, was first named Sibley Provincial Park when it was established in 1944, but was renamed to Sleeping Giant in 1988. It is located on the Sibley Peninsula surrounded by Lake Superior, located near Thunder Bay.

Sleeping Giant Provincial Park is 244 square kilometres in size, and this peninsula is the most visible of the park because it juts out so far into Lake Superior. Sleeping Giant Provincial Park comprises most of Sibley Peninsula, except for the community of Silver Islet and an area set aside for the Thunder Cape Bird Observatory. The eastern part of the park is the lowlands and the northern part is mostly made up of cliffs and valleys.

This area, because of its vastly different terrain, trees, and flowers, is a habitat for a large number of different animals, plants, and insects. There are 23 varieties of orchids on Sibley Peninsula alone. The wildlife found here includes white-tailed deer, moose and black bears. There are also over 200 species of birds, many of which nest every year in the Thunder Cape Bird Observatory. ... continue below the picture...
