  • For 300km drive from Toronto and find out that there are no parking left in grotto ~1PM is a bit disappointing. It is worst that there are no reservation so driving is a lottery. Beside it, other acti...  more »

  • You will not regret making it this far! If you come to the Bruce Peninsula National Park, then this is a trek you must do. Make sure you are prepared for it with water, good shoes, snacks and a towel so that you can enjoy the crystal-clear water of The Grotto. Bring a good waterproof camera if you can or a trusty ziploc bag as you will have some good chances to record memories.
  • A lovely walk down to some beautiful natural rock formations and stunning views out over the lake. The paths are very well maintained and easy going but the shore is more rocky and some of the rocks can bit a bit slippy if it's wet. Well worth the trek, just bring good shoes.
  • The easy hike from the nearby campsites to the Grotto is easily worth it. You feel like you have been transported to the Caribbean. The water is so blue it will take your breath away.
  • Great place worth the trip
  • Great views and clean water
