Point Pelee National Park, Leamington
(4.5/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Southernmost point in mainland Canada. This small national park is well worth the price of admission (approx. $8 for an adult) to visit its unique ecosystem and geography. This is the southernmost point in Canada except for the off-limits Pelee Island to the southwest. Do rent a canoe to explore the cattail marsh. A boat for two costs $10 for a half hour or $20 for a full hour, which should be sufficient for most paddlers. Note that only very limited snacks are available inside the park at the canoe livery, so be sure to pick up something before starting your visit.
  • Southernmost tip of Canada. Very beautiful national park. There are many interesting spots for family. Clean, calm beach and barbecue on beach. In spring excellent spot for bird viewer and photographer. Insects, birds, and reptile photograph amazingly.
  • 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. 👌👍
  • Point Pelee National park is a beautifull park with à fair amount of wild life witch is protected from being hunted.If you want to see a feet or go bird watching this is the place to go.There are also wild Turkey's here and you can sometimes see Turtles crossing the rrosd.The beaches are also nice to visit for a family outing.There is also the opption to rent a canoe and explore the wet lands and take pictures if you want to take memories home.
  • 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.
