The place is really showing lots of beauty , pure untouched nature, lots of camping hiking areas, but tobermory is a really small city that doesn't have any known fast food near the port .. !

If you come on saturday, you MUST come at 7:00 am or you will be turned away because our NATION PARK lacks parking spaces. There are only about 60 spots in P1 and another 30 spots at P2 and spaces for pre-registered campers. Love the park but hate the parking. Our government must invest money on parking to let the...

The Visitor's Center had great displays, films and exhibits about the park and the wildlife. Never heard of an animal called a fisher before! The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Good maps and water available. It may not matter to everyone, but the washrooms were the cleanest on the peninsula!

Had an amazing time in the Park... Very friendly staff at the visitors that were willing to talk anything about the outdoors. There was displays such as animal pelts from local wildlife right down to how to survive with making fires with out matches or a lighter... A Truly friendly group

Great hiking and gorgeous views. A little busy in the Grotto and Cyprus Lake area but well worth it. One of the most beautiful places in Ontario.

This has been a national park for its significance for the rare flora and fauna since 1930. The formation of the island is owing to it being sumberged in a tropical sea more than 400 million years ago! A rare natural phenomenon...

Bruce Peninsula is a nice, clean park. Enjoyed the coastline trails to Grotto and especially the hike to Devil's Monument on Dyer's Bay. Well worth the drive over to Dyer's Bay for the hike. Tobermory was a highlight, cool little town with fun cruises to Fathom Five Marine Park. The ONLY negative was the loud "party" atmosphere of Cyprus Lake... More

If you get a chance you should really go up to the overlook. The view is unbelievable there! We saw a fox and a hare and snakes (not too close) while in the parks. The visitor center is staffed with friendly and helpful people. The shipwreck videos are awesome. This is well worth the visit. Did Flowerpot Island as well... More

Day trips to Flowerpot Island to explore and enjoy the incredible variety of local wildflowers and orchids, or hike to the light house on the island. You can climb the viewing tower near the park office for spectacular views over the lake.

This is not a grand national park like you find in Western Canada, but it is a lovely respite in the summer. Lovely beaches, pleasant hikes - though you walk through a lot of trees to get to the views - quiet coves. The Visitor's Centre is excellent and worth a stop. It's a great place to spend two or...
