Massey and Manitoulin Island

Massey, “The Home of Chutes Provincial Park and Lots of Friendly People,” sits at the confluence of the Sauble and Spanish Rivers. The main attraction hereabouts is just north of Hwy-17: Chutes Provincial Park offers swimming, camping, picnicking, and several scenic waterfalls along the Sauble River.

Twenty miles east of Massey, 40 miles west of Sudbury, Hwy-17 intersects with Hwy-6, which heads south toward Manitoulin Island, the world’s largest freshwater island, set in the northern end of Lake Huron. Manitoulin is a popular vacation spot, ringed with picturesque harbors at Meldrum Bay, Providence Bay, and South Baymouth.
