From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:

     Baal of the north, an Egyptian town on the shores of the Gulf of
     Suez (Ex. 14:2; Num. 33:7), over against which the children of
     Israel encamped before they crossed the Red Sea. It is probably
     to be identified with the modern Jebel Deraj or Kulalah, on the
     western shore of the Gulf of Suez. Baal-zapuna of the Egyptians

     was a place of worship.

From Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's) [hitchcock]:
