Stokely is located in the Algoma Highlands, just north of the U.S. border in Goulais River, Canada. Near the shores of Lake Superior, Stokely consistently has great snow conditions and perfect terrain for cross country skiing and snowshoeing. 100 kilometers of trails traverse to the highest peaks of King Mountain and cross the valley and creeks below.
Word of mouth is Stokely's best way of marketing. Happy guests keep coming back year after year. They ski for hours and not see anyone on Stokely's extensive well groomed trails.
