Neys Provincial Park

Rocky Neys Provincial Park, 26km west of Marathon, has craggy beaches, furry caribou, short hiking trails (1km to 4.5km), and sunsets that make for a perfect Kodak moment.

Canoe rental (four hours $20) and camping (tent sites without hookups for up to six people $37) are available at the visitor centre.
