Baptism River reviews
Haven't been back here for over 30 years and well worth the trip. Beautiful views of the Baptism River along with hiking along the river. A must place to see on the North Shore! more »
We stayed at the BAPTISM RIVER INN which is located right on the river on HWY 1 just north of Silver Bay. It was the perfect location, setting, and experience. more »
