Ontario - Parks

Bruce Peninsula National Park - In the heart of a World Biosphere Reserve, the 'Bruce' is a place of global significance. The massive, rugged cliffs of the park are inhabited by thousand year old cedar trees, overhanging the crystal clear waters of Georgian Bay. The park is comprised of an incredible array of habitats from rare alvars to dense forests and clean lakes. Together these form a greater ecosystem - the largest remaining chunk of natural habitat in southern Ontario.

Fathom Five National Marine Park - It is Canada’s First National Marine Park. It protects 20 islands at the mouth of Georgian Bay, and a main ecosystem that extends from the surface water down 200 metres. Twenty-two shipwrecks are found in the park’s waters. If you don’t dive or snorkel, you can see shipwrecks from glass-bottom boats or visit Flowerpot Island where you can camp, see the island’s namesake rock columns, visit a lighthouse and explore a cave. Fathom Five’s freshwater ecosystem contains some of the most pristine waters of the Great Lakes. The rugged islands of the park are a reminder of the impressive lakebed topography found beneath the waves.

Georgian Bay Islands National Park - Protecting one of Canada's national treasures for your enjoyment: from Honey Harbour to Twelve Mile Bay in southern Georgian Bay you will discover spectacular landscapes, time-worn rock faces, diverse habitats and the rugged beauty of the Canadian Shield. These magnificent islands are accessible by boat only. The largest island, Beausoleil, offers tent camping, overnight and day docking, heritage education programs and hiking trails. Wheelchair accessible sites and reserved campsites are also available at the Cedar Spring campground on Beausoleil Island. Please note: Visitor information is available at the Parks Canada Welcome Centre at Lock 45 in Port Severn however visitors with DayTripper reservations are to travel directly to Honey Harbour to meet the boat.

Lake Superior National Marine Conservation Area - Created in October 2007, this is the first national marine conservation area (NMCA) of Canada created since the passing of the National Marine Conservation Areas Act in 2002. More than 70 species of fish inhabit the near-pristine waters of Lake Superior, the largest of the Great Lakes. Gulls, herons, eagles, and pelicans feed in these waters, while some also use island habitats for breeding. There may be as many as 50 shipwrecks within the Lake Superior NMCA – one of which, the Gunilda, Jacques Cousteau characterized as the most beautiful wreck in the world. The area boasts many other attractions related to geology, geomorphology, and flora and fauna. Aboriginal presence in this area dates back at least 5000 years and continues to the present day.

Point Pelee National Park - A lush Carolinian forest oasis at the southern tip of Canada, Point Pelee National Park resounds with migrating song birds in the spring, hums with cicadas in the summer, flutters with Monarch butterflies in the fall and is a peaceful place of reflection in the winter.

Pukaskwa National Park - Pukaskwa National Park's exceptional beauty is revealed in its vistas of Lake Superior and in the rugged, ancient landscape of the Canadian Shield and northern forest. The spirit of the wilderness envelopes those who explore this special place. The only wilderness national park in Ontario, Pukaskwa protects 1878 square km of an ecosystem that features boreal forest and Lake Superior shoreline.

St. Lawrence Islands National Park - This wonderful park is located in the heart of the Thousand Islands tourist area and it is Canada's smallest national park. Conceived in the 1870s, St. Lawrence Islands is a tiny jewel with a rich and complex natural and human history.

Ontario Parks - Take some time to explore Ontario Parks. With over 330 parks, covering 9 million hectares that attract over 10 million visits each year, there is a lot to discover!  Visit a park and take a timeout from the quick pace of everyday life.
