I believe this may be one of the nicer parks in Ontario in the fall and a real hidden gem that a lot of people maybe don't know about, but this summer (2014) the bugs were BRUTAL! There is parking in Honey Harbour and shuttle that goes out to the main island Boselie where all of the hiking and camping... More

Our three day trip to Beausoleil Island in Georgian Bay Islands National Park was the perfect summer get away for our young family. With a busy 2 year old in tow, equipped camping at the Cedar Springs Campground ensured that our time was spent having fun with our daughter and not hauling and setting up equipment. The offer comes with... More

The boating on Georgian Bay is fantastic. There are many bays to be discovered & the boaters are the friendliest & helpful as anywhere in the world. Docks are available for even the largest vessels or just "stay on the hook" and enjoy the fantastic views and nature.

I just moved to the area a couple years ago, and because of places like Beausoleil Island, I feel it was the best decision I ever made. Beausoleil Island itself is just a 10-minute boat ride across the bay from me and by far one of the coolest, most peaceful places I've ever been. This place is such a gem,... More

We walked no more than 2 hrs then gave up. Mosquitos everywhere. None of our protection work. Chatted with staff and found they felt strange too. Keep close to water and avoid get into forest. Boat ride to the island is awesome! Few passengers, great view!

My fiancé and I were looking very forward to going to Beausolei island for two nights and booked at Cedar Springs way in advance; Unfortunately when the time came to go it called for thunderstorms all 3 days we were booked to go. My fiancé called the cancellation line (Parks Canada) and since the reservation was in my name he... More

Georgian Bay Islands National Park of Canada is stunningly beautiful and has rugged outdoor fun that's easy for everyone. Have been going here as a boating family forever. It's great for kids who love outdoor fun and it's accessible too with the daytripper, board walks and modern Visitor's Centre. The interpretive staff are friendly, knowledgeable and are proud ambassadors and... More

Went there in August and took the "Daytripper" to the north end of Beausoleil island. We were expecting very nice views over the bay, but there are very few panoramic spots. So visiting the island looses most of its attraction, and I think you can easily find better hiking trails in other parks. Also the island was full of mosquitos,... More

The best and in practical purposes only way to see Georgian Bay Islands National Park is to see it by boat. So, by boat we did. We went out and explored the area. The water areas are beautiful, the homes and cottages here and there are fantastic. It was nice to see views of the resort. The rocks/island features are... More

If you don’t have a boat the only access to the Georgian Islands is the Daytripper boat to Beausoleil Island. It is about a 15 minute ride and you can choose to go to either the north or south end. If you take (or rent) bikes you can be dropped at the south end (Cedar Spring), bike most of the... More
