Cyprus Lake campground was full so we booked a spot at High Dump at backcountry campground. There are two ways to hike in to high Dump - from the High Logging Dump parking (what we did) or from the Crane Lake parking lot. They are both 7-8km hikes, with the easier hike being from the Crane Lake starting point. The... More

The Bruce Peninsula National Park is such a treasure to Canada. The Limestone bottom makes way to some of the clearest water I have ever seen in the world. Bright and clear blues almost make you feel like you are in the Caribbean. The water is always pretty cold though, so a wetsuit of some kind along with water or... More

Truly amazing scenery, but make sure you wear hiking boots or running shoes. It was definitely worth the short hike. Stayed in Cyprus Lake camp grounds. No shower facilities. Contrast to provincial parks, no park officials patrolled the park. Great rugged hike. Crystal clear water, beautiful rocky shore and glorious view. Fish & Chips at Shipwreck Lee's was fantastic.

The campground is fairly basic -- no showers or general store. Lots of wildlife around. As I pulled up on my motorcycle the rangers said right off, "You're gonna need a bear box!". Thankfully one is provided free of charge, and like the firewood, will be delivered right to your site. (Maybe that was only because I was only a... More

Came to Tobermory for a day trip from Wiarton. We went to the visitor centre on the August 1st long weekend, so it was packed, parking spots all taken. The price to get in the visitor centre and hike around is almost $6, quite reasonable, The visitor centre is OK, with some exhibiits, nothing fanastic, but the observation tower close... More

We spent two glorious days exploring the cove, grotto and surrounding trails. Great sights and scenery and the trails were well maintained. Certainly all skill levels can do the hike though the wooded are a bit of a challenge. Best part after a long extended hike was beavertails back in the town by the harbor haha !

A modest fee ($6CAD) will get you onto their hiking trails which feature nice scenic lookouts and a great woodsy hike which is not for the frail! There is also a scary high lookout tower which you can see a looong distance from the top of! Tip: Don't be fooled by the nice groomed trail; there are much more challenging... More
