State Park Nature / Park
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.

  • We visited this lovely Provincial Park in Ontario in the fall of 2015. The park itself is very well kept and very scenic.. Bring a bicycle however to truly enjoy this large park.. Our only complaint about our visit was during our departure, the sewage dump was full and sewage was spilling over onto the ground, not very pleasant. But that didn't stop the long line of other campers leaving, from using it anyhow. This pulled our rating down slightly.
  • A very nice Lighthouse here. Excellent park layout, nice beaches lots of camp sites and walking trails. Large Marsh area and boardwalk.
  • Fantastic board walks to have you be one with nature. Walk through the woods and listen to the many sounds. Beautiful area.
  • Lots of space for parking. Great beach. Lots of room you don't feel crowded. We had great time.
  • Great Camping Experience Early in the Season The end of April is a hard time to find a campground in Canada and Presqu'ile Provincial Park opened early in the season giving us an opportunity to enjoy a few days hiking and birdwatching in a peaceful environment.
