National Parks

Discover nature at its best – our national parks feature stunning scenery (above and below water!) and back-to-basics camping adventures.

Bruce Peninsula National Park

Wildly gorgeous and extremely popular, the Bruce Peninsula National Park is probably the most visited site in BruceGreySimcoe during the warm weather months. Part of the Niagara Escarpment’s UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, it’s located between Lake Huron and Georgian Bay and home to a rare ecosystem and the well-known Grotto

Cyprus Lake Campground, set in the park’s spectacular rugged beauty, is naturally suited for “no frills” camping with un-serviced campsites and no shower facilities. Ten waterfront yurts – open from late April until late October - take rustic up a notch on the shores of Cyprus Lake.  Reservations are required, so book early.  The Bruce Trail runs through the park on its way to Tobermory and features spectacular vistas of Georgian Bay.  Hiking levels vary, ranging from easy to very difficult. 

Fathom Five National Marine Park

Camping facilities may be limited on Flowerpot Island in Fathom Five National Marine Park, but what an awesome experience.  Only six tent campsites are available in Canada's first National Marine Conservation Area, each equipped with a wooden camping platform close to composting toilets.  As these sites are boat-accessible only via private tour companies, bring everything you need with you, including drinking water.  Reservations are highly recommended.   Hike the island trails to its unique flowerpot formations, caves and lightstation (maintained by volunteers).  Hike lengths vary from 1 ½ to up to 5 hours. Try something different this summer and sign up for the Volunteer Lightkeeper Host Program
