Presqu'ile Provincial Park, Brighton

(4.1/5 based on 200 reviews on the web)
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. Bring a picnic and take refuge in one of the many picnic areas located across the park. Put Presqu'ile Provincial Park on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Brighton itinerary planner.

  • Had a great day visit this summer. Beach is beautiful. Kids loved jumping in the waves. Good for families. Shallow, sand bar type beach, you can walk out really far and still be only about waist deep. Nice and flat to bike. Great for overnight camping or just a day visit.
  • We camp here almost every year for a week. Excellent place for camping. Sites are a great size and most have wind and sun coverage as well as lots of privacy. Both beaches are great for soaking up sun or going for a dip. Lots of historical monuments and buildings to visit and see. Lots of nature walks. trails and boardwalks providing excellent information.
  • Great park. Nice beaches. The boardwalk trail is definitely something to check out it you're interested in nature at all. There's a lot of history here.
  • Two stars. My group and I were sitting around the campfire minding our own business with a guitar, and a ranger came and threatened to fine us if we didn't stop right away. We stopped, however the rangers came to our campsite about every 30-40 minutes to see that our guitar was away, even though we understood fully well her request and we obviously did not want a fine. I felt uncomfortable with the ranger coming to bother us periodically and I didn't enjoy my stay due to that.
  • This park is a good location for Torontonians who want to experience nature, but don't want to drive too far out of the City. The car camping locations are sometime close together, but the facilities are kept in pretty good order. This is not the best or most interesting provincial park that I have been too, as it really only has a rock beach and moderate hiking trails. The park staff were friendly, though, and if you want to grab supplies last minute Brighton is 5-10 km out from the park
