Located on the southern shores of Manitoulin Island this little slice of heaven is the perfect place to stay whether it be for a few days or a few weeks while visiting Manitoulin Island. We had the opportunity to stay here for a few nights in one of their waterfront sites and it was hands down one of our favourite campsites we have ever stayed in! It is not very often you get to camp right along the waters edge and with an incredible view of the sunset every night to top it off. Our stay at South Bay Resort left us not wanting to leave and we cannot wait to return.

Getting Here:

Located minutes outside of the main area of South Baymouth staying at South Bay Resort is the perfect place to stay if you are coming or leaving the island from the ferry.  You can also easily take a 15 minute walk from the campground to South Baymouth for shops and restaurants.


South Bay Resort has a lot to offer including electric and water hook ups, picnic tables and fire pits, washrooms with hot showers and flush toilets. There is also laundry on-site which is perfect for those doing a longer stay or people like us who are on a road trip and need to try and minimize how much we bring!

Free wi-fi is available at the main office and can get a weak signal across the rest of the campground.

South Bay Resort also offers Paddle boat, canoe, rowboat and kayak rentals for you to explore the crystal clear waters of South Bay. Additional to the rentals there is a great kids park onsite for children to play in and a floating dock with a slide which looks like a ton of fun!

Accommodations at South Bay Resort:

South Bay Resort does not offer just camping they also have cottages and cabins for rent.  The campground and cabins happen to be pet friendly for those who are travelling with their four footed friends. We stayed in a waterfront campsite with water and 30 AMP power. All the campsites were great size and the waterfront sites had incredible views!

We really enjoyed our stay at South Bay Resort on Manitoulin Island and cannot wait to return for more incredible views and some R&R.
