My review is limited to the waterways of the park, since we were on a boating tour and didn't set foot on any of the islands. From the water, though, it is simply lovely. So many coves and rocks, islands and shores. The fall colors were stunning, and not even near their peak--would love to see the area in a... More

A trip to Georgian Bay Islands National Park is a great way to relax in September. If you can go during the week, you will find yourself almost alone. I stayed in one of their cabins which is right on the beach, close to the dock, trails, and amazing views. There's a firepit, BBQ, cookwaer, coffee maker, kettle, plates, utensils,... More

GBINP has become my family's go-to camping destination in Southern Ontario. There is so much to see, do, explore and enjoy on this spectacular island. The added adventure of ferrying over to the island from Honey Harbour gives you a sense of really getting away. Reservations from Parks Canada are straight forward, booking the Day Tripper from Honey Harbour is... More

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
