Welcome to Beautiful, Historic St. Joseph Island, the Village of Hilton Beach and the Hilton Beach Tourist Park.
"The Island" has an area of approximately 93,000 acres with 150 miles of shoreline. You enter the Island on Highway 548 from Highway 17 approximately 30 minutes east of Sault Ste. Marie. About 2 minutes from Highway 17 you come to the toll free bridge which leads on to the Island. The view from this point is spectacular especially in the fall when the maples are in colour.
The Island offers many opportunities for outdoor activities be it hiking, cycling, swimming, fishing or small game/deer hunting in the fall. The many bays & small islands surrounding "St. Joe" will entice the many canoe/kayak paddler, sail or power boat enthusiast. The surrounding landscapes, wildlife and passing ships have been an inspiration to both the novice and professional photographer and artist.
