  • This park is lovely. Tons of hiking trails, great wildlife and you can also rent canoes around the Marsh Boardwalk. It is a four season park and you will see different things on every visit. Highly...

  • What a very special place this is! You walk out on a long sand spit into Lake Erie, and you are farther south than a big chunk of the USA! The views are superb and it's blissfully warm in summer.

  • Amazing park! Marsh and trails full of cute frogs and turtles, pretty water lily and lots of birds. Great for bird watching, make sure to bring binocular. Another spectacular site is the top of Canada, surrounded by water from 3 directions, almost feels like at the edge of another dimension. Really worth visiting. Great restaurant nearby for fresh water yellow perch, and definitely recommend spend a day in the park. Amenities are clean and very convenient, free shuttle bus to the tip is frequent. 5/5!
  • Park is huge. There were webs of caterpillars scattered throughout the park ,blanketing the trees. It was very strange to see the density and quantity in the park. Very beautiful greenery. Arrived at the visitor center,very fun viewings and exhibits. Free shuttle to the main attraction of the Ontario 'tip'. It was a short walk to the point where you take a pic and move on as tourists are in a constant rotation. I loved the park,the extensive shoreline and beach scenery but I absolutely hated one major thing: the flies,the swarming insects that bombard you like they are protecting the park from human intruders. It was so bad ,no amount of repellent prevented their never ending attacks. Had to cut the trip short around that area. Still worth the trip.There are other park spaces to explore..one area in the marshes was very nice.Lots of birds and you can rent a canoe in groups or solo. Won't return but I am glad I experienced the park.
