Enjoyed our day at Point Pelee Park. The high Lake Erie water level left the point very small but always impressive.

A great spot for a family day-trip! We enjoyed spotting wildlife along the marsh boardwalk, seeing the marsh from the Freighter canoe, visiting the Visitor Center and of course the point! Apparently the point itself is much smaller this year due to higher water levels...More

It's a nice clean park with lots of hiking and beaches but the point was disappointing, as mostly eroded this year due to high water. Not much to do other than look at local nature an hike around. Still worth experiencing Canadas farthest southern tip.
