We decided to take the hiking trails and were not disappointed. Have to say that if you want to cross Boulder Beach hiking boots do it best although I did see some people in sneakers. Indian Cove was a gorgeous surprise. We passed it on the way to the Grotto and had to stay a while to take it in.... More

I went camping for 2 days and a night with my friends along with their children last July 4-5. Our campsite was located at the Cyprus Lake Birches 110. It's a small area but we were able to fit 3 tents there (2 large ones and 1 small). There were 9 adults and 4 children. Not much space for children... More

Dense forest, beautiful views, wonderful trails and even a shallow, relatively warm beach area. It's no wonder this park has become so popular. The downside of its success is that camp sites are sold out quickly and day parking is limited so that you may not be able to visit certain areas at peak periods. Here are some highlights: The...

This park has the most spectacular scenery of just about any park in southern Ontario. It's too bad that everyone has found out about it and it's so much busier than it used to be... Anyway, spectacular views, a warm lake in the park where you can soak without freezing, and strict rules to keep the partying at a minimum.

This is a great park, lots to see and do. Great visitor center, awesome limestone cliffs, cool clear waters of Georgian Bay, nice hikes, and lots of camping. But, a serious lack of toilet facilities for the campers, most of whom are in tents. One toilet for over 100 sites, and very stark and basic at that. And very limited... More

B and I visited the park last year for a day of hiking during some family cottage time. I loved the views and he loved fishing the lake so much, we decided to return for a camping trip. We set up at Tamarack Campgrounds. Our site was the most private spot with no neighbours infront, behind or to the left.... More

We drove to the halfdump log and parked our car there ($11.70/day). There were guides there to assist our hike for the day so you can ask any questions! They were quite knowledgeable. This place was about a 4 hour walk to The Grotto (one way). We trekked along the way and followed the bruce trail. The view was absolutely... More

After reading tons of reviews, we packed our backs and left for Tobermory and it was amazing. As everyone said we arrived here earlier than 8 am before the parks opened and there were few people before us but we paid for p1 parking at the service centre. The girls at the centre were extremely helpful. We parked at the... More

We visited during a family vacation in July. The scenery was beautiful although we didn't see much wildlife because the park was busy. I would recommend going early as we were denied entrance into the park the first time we tried.
