Katherine Cove is located in Lake Superior Provincial Park in Ontario’s Algoma Country. This is a sandy beach on the shore of Lake Superior. Picnic tables, benches and a restroom are available for visitors to utilize.

The Cove and adjacent Lizard Islands offer swimmers warmer shallow waters to enjoy. A short yet demanding Coastal Trail from the beach will lead you to the natural wonder, Bathtub Island.

  • All visitors in Lake Superior Provincial Park must purchase a day use permit. Full day permits are $15.50 and visitors can purchase them at the Agawa Bay Visitor Centre, Gatehouse, or the Park Office.
  • Parking on the side of the highway is prohibited. Visitors must park at the Katherine Cove or Sand River parking lots and hike along the coastal trail to Bathtub Island.
  • All visitors must respect and maintain the ecological integrity of the location. This means staying on marked trails and off of dunes and dune grasses.
  • This is not a day use area, meaning all visitors must treat it as a backcountry trail. There are no toilets or garbage bins at the site. Visitors must practice backcountry etiquette by packing out whatever they bring in, including used toilet paper/tissues, and leaving no trace.
  • Visitors must adhere to park rules regarding camping, cans, bottles, and fires, which are all prohibited.
