Rossport is located in Ontario’s Superior Country Region. Rossport is situated on the beautiful North Shore of Lake Superior, 116 mils (187 km) east of Thunder Bay on Hwy. 17. Rossport has a population of 65 and is known for being another town that has strong connections to the railway. Rossport can easily be missed, since it sits slightly off Hwy. 17 on the Rossport Loop. But a stop is more than worth the time. There are many vantage points where you can view the many islands of the Schreiber Channel of the Casque Isle Trail that dot Lake Superior’s shoreline, and don’t be surprised to find beautiful yachts anchored in the harbor.
Rossport is a favorite destination for power boaters and sail boaters from ports near and far. The Rossport Islands are among the largest archipelago on Lake Superior, stretching from the Slate Islands in the east to Silver Islet in the west and including Black Bay Peninsula. The narrow channels and protected harbors of the Rossport Islands are ideal for sea kayaking. Rossport has a railway museum right in the caboose of a train and lovely antique and pottery shops. Be sure to visit the charming inns, B&B’s or shop for exclusive gifts made by local artists and artisans to complete your “Rossport Experience”.
