"To Beausoleil Island in Georgian Bay come Canadian and America youth groups each summer for their camping holidays. Boy Scouts, Sea Cadets, and Girl Guides find an ideal setting here for an outdoor life complete with swimming, boating, hiking, and evenings 'round the campfire. Sportsmen and vacationing families come to this island park too, to fish or picnic among the sun-warmed rocks."
