  • 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 »
