We have been going to this place since 1965 and always see something new. The water is so clear you can see to the lake bottom in 35-40 feet. Swimming is very refreshing as the water stays very cool all summer. Used to keep our sailboat here for at least 10 years. It is a great place to visit.

We visited for an afternoon and I was sick with strep throat. Yet I managed a two-hour hike along the trail and a short dip in the frigid but spectacularly beautiful water. There was no way I was going all the way to this park without getting something good out of it. In my opinion, this is the best spot... More

Loved the hiking here. Makes all my previous hiking around the GTA and surrounding area seem like peanuts.

Loved camping here and there's so much to do in the area you couldn't possibly ask for more. Hike around Cypruss Lake, down to the Grotto, over to Half Way Log Dump, Boulder Beach, go into Tobermory, visit Flower Pot Island, and climb the visitors viewing tower located at the Park Visitors Building in Tobermory.

This was my first time to go up north of Toronto. I've heard much about The Bruce Peninsula National Park and it's worth the 4 hours trip. Though we spent only half the day as this was our last stop on our 3 days vacation in Collinwood-Tobermory but its so amazing! The sceneries are so beautiful! I would definitely go... More

The Bruce trail takes a respite at Tobermory before continuing at Manitoulin Island. Hikers know the Bruce TrIl but for those that do not it follows the Niagara Escarpment from NY to north of Michigan in Ontario. The most enchanting and beautiful section is from Lions Head to Bruce Panincula. The National park is blessed with awe inspiring 200' cliff's... More

This was my first time to the Bruce Peninsula National Park and won't be the last. Already looking forward to our next trip next year and this time we would like to get a yurt. Had three amazing days in Tobermory and spent a day at the park. Beautiful sceneries and hiking. Good pair of hiking shoes is a must... More

I loved Bruce Peninsula National Park. Things you must go see are the Grotto, Indian Head Cove, Over hanging point. Drive into Tobermory for some small shop shopping and family owned restaurant. Take a tour to Flower Pot Island on a glass bottom boat. I loved my week stay and want to return again. Campers please note the park has... More
