Best winter walk

Amazing ice and sand in a winter paradise. Easy access to marsh and point. Winter hours open and not good to wander on ice

We go to the point a few times per year and it is always well kept. The bathrooms are for the most part clean. The grounds are tended to and the staff is always super friendly. We recommend this as a stop for all.

"This is like a paradise." Were my first thoughts. There are beaches, butterflies, birds, swamps and numerous trees. Moreover, this is the most southerly location in all of Canada! The day we were here it was also hot! I loved it! At the end of the peninsula, two lakes seemingly collide with one another. One side is calm; the other... More

Great place to visit for a summer beach day, or hiking, bike riding, or bird watching. Also a great place, and one of very few, spots to visit when they have their dark sky nights. The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada will even be there. Informative staff, and nice little nature centre add to the experience. Check their events listings... More

I can cross it off my bucket list! Fantastic nature trails and enjoyed the numerous sightings of birds. Saw my first Baltimore Oriole and it was actually enjoying all the attention it was receiving! Spent the afternoon taking in all the scenery and breathtaking views. If you love birds, check out this beautiful park.

As Canada's smallest national park Point Pelee is a very diverse natural wonder that should be visited by anyone who enjoys nature.

Point Pelee was a great experience and was very cool because the waves of the water smashed into each other. Point Pelee has a visitor center that you could go to. The only thing is there are a lot of bugs (at least when we went). Overall, this trip was a great experience.

We have been going to Pelee for over 20 years. It is one of the highlights of each year. My sister and I spend a week or more in the park and love every minute.

One of the foremost bird-watching spots in North America! Plenty of wooded trails, long point protruding into Lake Erie with ample opportunity to watch water birds offshore. Good butterflying in summer, flowers abound in the warmer months.
