Sauble Falls Provincial Park, Sauble Beach

3.3
#7 of 7 in Nature in Bruce County
Sauble Falls Provincial Park serves as a picturesque verdant parkland ideal for family getaways. Sportfishers find excellent freshwater stream fishing conditions at the park, so bring a rod and some tackle along. Also bring plenty of snacks to take advantage of the park’s extensive picnic site, and make sure younger members of the family stop off at the children’s playground. The eponymous falls within the park are also the end of a canoeing route, an ideal one if you're just a beginner.

  • Beautiful natural little falls. Water was really flowing when we were there. We went off season but am happy we got to see these natural beauties. If you're in the area this is a must!  more »
  • Looking for a nice walk we saw on the map the Sauble Falls site. Our disappointment was great. The parking is located 200 m from the site and it's not spectacular expected to at least take a little walk and find these small falls in nature. We went off season but the parking is normally paid.

  • This place is really nice. When we went it was just before summer, so it wasn't packed (we were the only ones at the falls....a few kids were in the park). We didn't go in the falls like the picture shows... I wouldn't have known people swim in that area. We will need to go back in the middle of summer. The falls and trail is really nice. The park was nice a d calm when we're were there. Down the street towards Sauble, you will see signs for horse back riding. They offer great pricing and the man I'd very nice. His wife was very rude, but he said she has dementia, and his niece is normally there to help instead...we just went on a day that it rained so they weren't expecting anyone, and his niece left.
  • Lovely park with a great step waterfall. Later in the year you can come and see the salmon run. Our only issue was with the wasps, so we had to eat our lunch in the car. But I would recommend this park to anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing stop. BTW, l understand that there is also camping with a number of sites along the river.
  • Not an awful lot to do here if you're not fishing or kayaking. Parking is paid, and they charge a minimum of 2 hours/$5.75. A bit of a rip off considering the average visit is likely much shorter. Washrooms are typical of a provincial park, in that they look like they are cleaned once a season. Avoid unless it's an emergency. Don't believe the pics you see in tourism brochures. No one is sitting in the waters of the falls. The rocks are covered in algae, so they feel really nasty and are crazy slippery. Plus the water is really cold
  • The views are different and interesting. Good visit. The cost of parking seemed a bit high. I liked that there was a liability sign telling people not to be dangerous around and near the water but that people still have the option to go on the gentle falls. Lots of people were in and around the water. It had a good feeling to it. The one thing I didn't like was the scummy water foam in one area. That turned me off. Makes me not interested to go in the water, like many others there were doing last weekend.
  • I've never camped here but spent the day here several times. Canoeing/kayaking here is AWESOME! I always come to the rental place by the bridge and the prices are great and it's a really fun time. Love kayaking up the river and it's also a little challenging which is awesome. Highly recommended. The falls are fun too and there are areas where you can jump off the falls. Such a fun time. Wear water shoes!

Where to stay in Sauble Beach

Head west to find the best selection of accommodations in Sauble Beach, with a range of holiday cottages and lodges located just a stone's throw from the water. Thanks to the town's flat topography and low-rise buildings, most of these offer excellent sunset views, even if they're not right on the beach. Expect comfortable rooms, free Wi-Fi, and complimentary breakfast. For something more budget-friendly, consider the campsites set just back from the beach.
