#1 of 10 in Things to do in Brighton
Step out into nature with a trip to Presqu'ile Provincial Park, a biodiverse landscape with both beach and marsh for you to uncover. The varied terrain provides 16 km (9.9 mi) of trails and hikes along lapping shorelines, shady woodlands, and lush meadows, creating scenic walks and perfect settings for both on and off road biking. A migration hotspot in spring and fall, the park attracts bird watchers and nature lovers alike, with the 1 km (0.6 mi) boardwalk trail through marsh lending itself perfectly to a spot of bird watching. Look out for the second oldest operating lighthouse in Ontario in the park, with a pastel coastline leading up to its welcoming visitors center.

  • Wonderful camping spot! Nice for hiking and biking with a sandy beach. Great campsites
  • This park is my go to camping spot, even though I haven't gone in a few years! The beach is nice, wide and spread out. There are good camping spots - Especially in the Lakeside campgrounds. Washrooms are as good as they can be in a campground. Very family friendly even though I've only been here with friends. There is a nice paved trail/road that circles around the park for a stroll on the bike. Fond memories in this park.
  • Beautiful scenery. Love to walk the trails. When the sky is clear the view of the stars at night is magnificent. The Beach can be a bit dirty sometimes because it is also a bird sanctuary.
  • This park was nice and clean. We were a group of 10 people on 3 sites and we were able to get them right beside eachother. The mosquitos were very bad as there was so much flooding last spring. Bring lots of repellant and an eating tent.
  • Beautiful green space. Great ice cream. Great bike lanes. Very peaceful. some of the beaches are a little rough and they may close due to flooding so check before your drive or ride out. There is also an entry fee per vehicle but if you live in the area the attendants may allow you to look around for fee. Bicycle enter free.
