Chimney Bay
(North end of Beausoleil Island)

The northern part of the island is more wild and rugged, boasting the best hiking trails and scenery in the park – with breathtaking views out over the islands of Georgian Bay! You’ll see the granite bedrock, clear blue water and windswept white pines that inspired the famous Group of Seven artists. There are plenty of spots to stop for a scenic picnic or dip in the bay.
