AREA GEOGRAPHY AND WEATHER
One of the advantages of Stevens Bay is there’s a lot of water and many back bays but it’s easy to find your way around and back to Young’s Camp. Stevens Bay is a four-and-a-half mile finger of Sabaskong Bay, on the East shore of Lake of the Woods which has more than 65,000 miles of shoreline, a million acres of water and over 14,000 islands.
The roughly 1.0 million acres of Crown land is located on the Precambrian (Canadian) Shield so named because it is U-shaped giving it the geological appearance of a warrior’s shield or giant horseshoe. The Canadian Shield was the first part of North America to be permanently elevated above sea level and has remained almost wholly untouched by successive encroachments of the sea upon the continent. Today it consists largely of an area approximately 1,000 to 2,000 feet above sea level.
Temperatures range in the summer from a low of mid 50 degrees to the high 80s. October weather can be unpredictable and may range from 50 degrees and clear to the mid-30s and snow. Guests are advised to bring layered clothing in summer and fall including rain gear.
