South Baymouth Manitoulin - the World's largest Fresh-water Island
Manitoulin means “home of the Great Spirit” and for many people it is a place with a character all its own. Although located in Northern Ontario, it is an extension of the Niagara Escarpment. Culturally it exhibits the charm of a land apart with the distinction of being the world’s largest fresh-water island.
South Baymouth has complete tourist services, boat docks, launch ramps and fuel. John Budd Memorial Park provides picnic facilities on Hwy 6. The harbour has tidy boardwalks that provide a view of the marina and the historic range beacons. A children’s playground is located on the shore beside the marina. The Little Schoolhouse Museum displays the early heritage of this former fishing village with a nostalgic example of a one-room schoolhouse and a fishery exhibit. The Bowerman Nature Trails extend from Green or Dyment Street at the end of the marina, encountering outcrops, boardwalks and a viewpoint. A lovely picnic gazebo stands beside the Tehkummah Beach on Highway 6 at Duck’s Bay Rd.
