  • Ontario’s finest. Come here for such a view you won’t forget for a while. Every summer, when there is nothing to do, many Ontarians come up to the amazing Bruce Peninsula to be shocked in awe of how beautiful a place could be! This is the place to contemplate on anything and a great place to have a date. Just don’t get too close to the waters.
  • One of the best winter hikes I’ve ever done. We listened to past reviewers, and rented snow shoes for an early March hike. Life saver!!! The hike was still challenging, but with the snow shoes, we didn’t hate life, and had energy to keep exploring. I saw plenty of sunken foot prints, some being two feet at least, so a little planning went a long way. The Bruce trail section did have open restrooms. If you don’t get snow shoes, at least bring crampons (shoe/boot spikes), they’ll make the hike less risky.
  • Amazing weekend getaway. Motel accommodations were fabulous. Water was clear and blue in some areas just like everyone described. We went in August, however water was still extremely cold. I took a dip and got out really quickly. No real swimming that weekend for us, however we went for a great hike inside Bruce Peninsula, had a beach day enjoyed the town, shops and scenic views. Highly recommended to go at least once.
  • One of my favourite parks for camping. The sites are not too big and the place is really crowded but the beauty surrounding the park is so breathtaking that nothing else matters. Many trails to go on, the one to the Grotto being the main attraction. I would recommend camping here as if you are visiting from out there is a 1 hour vehicle line up at the gate of the park. This place is one for the bucket list.
  • An amazing place in all seasons. Beautiful hiking trails through the woods, on a lake shore... for couples and families with kids... for everybody. If you like outdoors, this is a MUST SEE place. We love it eaquly in spring, summer, fall and winter 💖
