This is not a grand national park like you find in Western Canada, but it is a lovely respite in the summer. Lovely beaches, pleasant hikes - though you walk through a lot of trees to get to the views - quiet coves. The Visitor's Centre is excellent and worth a stop. It's a great place to spend two or three days, especially in June or mid-week to avoid the summer crowds.

We were recommended to visit the Bruce Peninsula National Park by a waitress at a restaurant in Owen Sound. Great place to walk the dogs, we took the easiest route of three to the Grotto and it was about a 90 minute round trip and easy walking.

It was not planned at all to come here first, but i really enjoyed this park ! Was in spring, so i couldn't swim, but the landscapes are still incredible ! The water is so pure, it's great. Nice to do some rock-climbing too. I'm looking forward to come in the summer !

You wanna feel real Canada's nature then try this camping site. I only can say it is amazing in any ways. Nature is beyond imagination. Trail way from cyprus lake to the point is unforgettable. Camp site had the cleanest washrooms and best services among other provincial and national parks I have visited. Just make sure you don't get addicted to it.
