From north of Carling to the Naiscoot River, you’ll find the natural paradise of the northern half of The Archipelago. Here you’ll spend much of your experience travelling quiet rural roads and highways, surrounded by pristine wilderness, small lakes and muskeg. While much of the area within The Archipelago is undeveloped, along the route you’ll find Pointe Au Baril, an idyllic lakeside community tucked gently away from the highway. Amenities in Pointe au Baril include a general store with a restaurant and bakery, a lakeside community centre with park and nearby cottage resorts, making for an ideal overnight stop on a more secluded stretch of the Trail.
Just north of Pointe au Baril on Highway 529, you’ll find Sturgeon Bay Provincial Park, a beautiful lakeside park with a sandy beach, shower and toilet facilities, a small store with some camping supplies, and overnight camping opportunities. If you’re travelling by foot or by bicycle, make sure to ask park staff about their bear lockers.
