Enjoy a day of geocaching or walking along the bay where you can observe turtles and sometimes a beaver lodge is built nearby From time to time the Friends of Pt Au Roche hold a night outing to observe the...

A great place to get away and relax. My family enjoys walking along all the different trails. Take the Long Point for an impressive view!

I have been to this park many times and I love it. The water is beautiful, the trials are beautiful, the views are beautiful, and you can't beat the price to take the family for the entire day. Positive and peaceful atmosphere. Most places you go to lifeguards act like police or silent robots, but at this park they always... More
