This is a great place to stop for maps and info. It is on a long, twisting lane that faces RBC at highway 6 in Tobermory. For divers, they may either get annual dive permits ($20) or 2-day ($10) passes for Fathom Five National Marine Park; without it, you can't dive Lake Huron. Dive shops will sell daily permits, too,... More

We camped at one of the campgrounds along Cyprus Lake and spent an afternoon hiking to the Cove and the Grotto. We'd seen pictures of Overhanging Point with people walking around under the overhang (giving us the impression it was accessible), so we decided to continue on and hike there. There was a large Boulder Beach that we had to... More

If you are going don't miss it. We love visiting the parks of course this is not contained in one place like the parks in the US.

So much to see, touch, look and enjoy about the whole area of Tobermory and the National Park. So glad we went first to help us to understand everything about the entire area. If you go to the Fathom Five NP you can use the park pass for both within 24 hrs.

My sisters and I did the Burnt Point Loop yesterday in Tobermory, the trail is fun, a little rugged but it seems like you are in a dry rain forest. Great lookouts at several point out to beautiful Georgian Bay. A great 5km hike!

What a great visitors centre!! Clean bathrooms and friendly informative staff!! We payed the $11 (rounding up) for 2 adults for the admission to the museum, video and tower. This also is the entrance fee that is charged to you by the boat companies that take you to flowerpot island so be sure to show them the receipt if you... More

First, go climb the tower at the visitor's centre from where you have a spectacular view over the area. We did some great day hikes on the Bruce trail. The scenery is awesome and if you leave the more touristic spots, you'll enjoy the pure nature and are mostly on your own. There is only one thing that could be... More

- A jewel 4 hrs from Toronto - The most clean, clear and beautiful fresh water I have seen - Grotto - the must visit place! I cannot emphasize enough you MUST see! - It is a 15 - 20 min hike from the car park ... make sure you have your camera for some unforgettable pictures!

We spent five nights camping at Cypress Lake. Nice having 2 picking tables at each site. The site was large enough for our small trailer and tailgate shelter. Bathrooms were so so and could be cleaned more frequently due to messy fellow campers. Two of the nights it sounded like a fraternity party down the road but it was far... More

Beautiful park, my girlfriend and I enjoyed it a lot! The parking lot closest to the Grotto was full so we had to drive 5km further to the big dump trail parking lot. It's the same shoreline but much farther from the Grotto; there is a trail however it takes a few hours and is extremely difficult. Beach was stunning... More
