An absolutely beautiful park on the Georgian Bay. We did a 3-day camping trip, and it was well worth it. The beautiful blue, crystal clear waters of the Georgian Bay will surely make you wanna stay longer. The entire park is amazing, however a little crowded in some areas. I'd recommend making a trip to Halfway Log Dump in the... More

This place is gorgeous! The water is crystal clear and so clean, as if you're on vacation! If you're a daredevil, there are a few cliffs to jump off of BUT make sure you're a good swimmer and the water might be really cold. There is also a cave you can swim in, it's beautiful! Crystal clear water,you can even... More

First time at this campsite. We stayed on a Tamarack site. The sites are a good size and well spaced out with lots of trees. Ground was a bit hard, and hammering in aluminum stakes was tricky. Once set up the site was beautiful. 15 minute walk along Cyprus Lake to trail head, and from there a short walk to... More

This park is beautiful especially the walk to the grotto. But the site 201 we were on at Cyprus was right beside a main road which I wish I had of known. This campsite was also supposed to be noise free. But we had someone across from us show up in the middle of the night and started pumping up... More

nicely groomed trails leading to the grotto.. walking thru the woods.. excellent views when you get there .. lots of slippery and uneven rocks so wear good shoes... swimming was great and little cool around 68 degrees but not too bad.. It is definitely worth the 30 minute walk to the grotto..

We just got back from here yesterday. All of Bruce peninsula is amazing. South and north. We loved how clear the waters were in the tobermory area. The towns people are nice and the hiking trails do not run out. We stayed at Cyprus lake and did snorkelling and went to flowerpot island. The weather is cold so bring lots... More

Plenty of Walking tracks, camping grounds and swimming areas, this is a must see for all coming through the Tobermory and surrounding towns. Perfect in summer time with ferrys available, and plenty of sites for tenting available too.

We just stopped by the observation tower briefly while we were in Tobermory. It was a short walk from the Harbor. You can see through the stairs straight through to the ground.. I don't consider myself super scared of heights normally, but this was terrifying! The structure felt safe but I couldn't shake feeling scared, especially as it swayed in... More
