Breathe in the fresh air during an adventure through Point Pelee National Park--15 sq km (5.8 sq mi) of protected land jutting out into Lake Erie. Take the boardwalk across the marshlands and head out onto sandy spits for extensive views of the shimmering lake. As the southernmost point of mainland Canada, the park offers sights of creatures unseen elsewhere in the country, such as the fox snake and the five-lined skink. Birders have spotted about 360 different species of migratory birds in the park, which is a meeting point of two major migration paths. Point Pelee National Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Leamington Edition.

  • I love it here. I come all the time and walk. It's gorgeous and so clean. So much different things now. Fantastic job guys. 👌👍
  • Beautiful and diverse in animal and plant life, as well as very scenic beaches. My wife and I spent the holiday weekend at a nearby campground and spent the days in the national park. Take a canoe ride through the marshes, visit The Tip, and see the birds of prey exhibit up close, but beware the flies.
  • This park is a beautiful place for nature lovers! There is an admission fee or you can buy an annual pass. There are long winding roads that lead you to different parking places throughout the park. There is a large boardwalk through the marsh as well as a tall observation tower. Sometimes turtles and fish are visible as well as flowers and different kinds of birds. There is a souvenir store, bathrooms, and informational plaques throughout the park. The last mile or so of road that leads down to the point is closed off to regular traffic and open only to the park shuttles to and from the end. However, this part of the road I open to people who wish to bike, walk, run, roller blade, long bord, etc. There are also nature trails to walk. A beautiful, natural place that anyone who enjoys nature will love.
