Township of Terrace Bay

Terrace Bay (known as the “Gem of the North”) is a picturesque community situated on the Trans-Canada Highway 17.  Originally named after the sand and gravel terraces that cascade from Lake Superior, the area is surrounded by the rugged beauty and freedom of the North of Superior wilderness while serving as the Eastern gateway to the Lake Superior National Marine Conservation Area.
It is this wilderness that encourages sportsmen and vacationers to stay and enjoy fishing, hunting, boating, golfing, hiking, swimming, kayaking, and snowmobiling. Boaters can experience the numerous beaches and coves as well as the Slate Islands Provincial Park which was formed by a meteorite strike and has the largest known shattercone rock formation in the world. The group of islands that make up the park are located 13 km off shore from Terrace Bay and are inhabited by a friendly woodland caribou population. Terrace Bay also offers a wide range of shopping, restaurants, campgrounds and accommodations in its downtown core.
Just west of town turn at the campground to visit the 100-foot Aguasabon Falls & Gorge. The view is spectacular and additional trails lead you down to the sandy Terrace Bay Beach on Lake Superior and the challenging Aguasabon Golf Course. The 52-km Casques Isles Hiking Trail begins at the Gorge and joins Terrace Bay, Schreiber, and Rossport. When linked to other trails along the coastline of Lake Superior, this trail will form part of the 1,100 km Voyageur Trail stretching from Manitoulin Island in Lake Huron to Thunder Bay. 
Hikers can experience spectacular sightseeing including fossils, lichens, orchids, lookouts, cobble beaches, rocky headlands, waterfalls, quiet coves and the raging seas in late fall along with wildlife sightings.
The tourism information centre is your source for everything you need to know when visiting the town and the friendly staff will help you plan your trip.  For more information, please visit
