Turquoise water, smooth rocks to sunbathe on, and and kilometers of beautiful hiking trails – the reasons to visit Bruce Peninsula National Park are endless. You shared your own favourite parts of a trip to the Bruce with us. Here’s what you said:
“If not for the pines, that water could be mistaken for the Caribbean!” – Mike A.
Sometimes you don’t have to travel far from home to see some beautiful natural wonders. The turquoise water in Indian Head Cove is as vibrant as you’ll find in southern hemispheres, but the refreshing water of Lake Huron is hard to beat for the perfect swim.
“Just got back from camping there. Beautiful place!” -Michelle W.
If you love camping Bruce Peninsula National Park has a range of options, from drive in, group or backcountry camping. If you enjoy some of the comforts of home on your camping trip give the park’s yurt accommodations a try. Each yurt can sleep 5 and comes with a barbecue – plus they have a beautiful view of Cyprus Lake.

“Just got home from a 2 week stay! Love it!” – Anita P.
There’s a lot to do in the park and the surrounding area. While you can fit in the highlights on a weekend trip, a longer stay will give you time to enjoy all the region has to offer. Venture to the nearby town of Tobermory to experience scuba diving, boating, hiking and some of the world’s tastiest fresh local food.
“I love Tobermory, the entire Bruce Peninsula and the most super national park there. I’ve taken the ferry a few times, always a great trip.” – Linda T.
One of the most exciting ways to travel to the Bruce Peninsula or to end your trip, is with a ride on the ferry that links Tobermory and Manitoulin island, the Chi-Cheemaun. Your ride on this passenger and car ferry takes you over the Fathom Five National Marine Park and is a great way to experience the beautiful views as you travel to your destination. Grab a snack on board in the cafeteria, or lounge up top on the colourful Muskoka chairs.
