Got a midday pass. Great hike options. Cliffs were very slippery with the intermittent rain and gave a few scary slides. View from the Cliffs of the unique lake water colors was amazing and worth the time

Cyprus Lake near Tobermory Ontario is a few hours from home, an area I would love to retire to eventually. Hiking and beautiful waters, close to the Grotto and other provincial parks.

Hiking the area was amazing. The views of the lake were breath taking. I have never seen water so clear. Bring plenty of bug spray and we're good shoes. So many people with flip flops. What were they thinking???

Great tips! Bug spray, sunscreen, and proper hiking footwear are very important during a visit at our park. Thank you for your review, Susane.

Loved this walk. Very few people about. Well maintained wood chip pathway along the edge of the lake with lovely vistas.

I believe you will be able to book a campsite as my daughter was always able to as long as you give home address and can pay for the site

I believe the parking reservations are for daily visits only. The trail from the camp grounds to the grotto could take as little as 20 minutes or if birding like we were, several hours. Contact Parks Canada to get more... More

There is a Foodland grocery store in Tobermory which is a medium size store and provides a good selection of food items.
