             A store, typically in a small town, selling a wide variety of goods.

By The Bay General Store certainly takes the definition to heart, as in this store you will find everything from groceries and ice cream (18 flavours!) to fishing supplies and bait. Attached to the General Store is the By The Bay Restaurant – where you’ll find all day breakfast and fresh cut fries for those wanting a break from cooking. With a campground for trailers & RVs and 4 cottages (two of which are lakefront), you’ll be just steps from this amazing waterfront, but they aren’t done! The newly renovated 200 foot dock, where you can enjoy fishing for bass, perch or of course pike, as well as enjoy the amazing sunsets that Lake Huron is known for!

For this Passport stop, park at the General Store and take a walk, following the detour signs to your next Passport punch!

Black Creek Provincial Park, which features 9.4 kilometres of trails and Sandy Beach, A.K.A. the perfect picnic spot is just up the road for additional exploring.

You’re a short drive to Lion’s Head (hint – mini-tour!) and all that it has to offer with the amazing escarpment views, beach, shopping and exploring opportunities.
