Park is located on a peninsula out into Lake Erie. It has several lovely, clean beaches as well as trails through the wooded areas. There is also a lookout and canoe launch out into the marsh. You can bring own canoe or rent theirs or go on guided tour. The annual Spring Bird Migration takes place in April/May where you... More

One of the few natural areas left in Essex County. Has a great mix of things to see from marshlands, forests and Lake Erie.

We did go there intentionally on a cold, cold day! I've visited Point Pelee in the summer but never in the winter. It was well worth the shivering! We walked to the very tip and were amazed by the differences on each side of the point. One side was open water, with visible currents while the other side was frozen... More

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.
