How perfect, so many beach areas, during the week it is easy to find a private beach get away! We also enjoyed the trip to the tip and the Boardwalk over the wet lands.

My husband and I visited the park for a day trip in June, 2016. We had planned to bicycle from the marsh boardwalk parking lot to the tip, but my bike broke down right at the parking lot. Instead we rented a canoe for about $20. /hour and had a fun hour and a half paddling along a channel out... More

I haven't been to Point Pelee in a few decades. But my wife and I went recently and its still as nice as I remember it. Its smaller than I remember but that always happens when you haven't been somewhere since your youth. The park now has a fee, I remember that the fee used to be based on just... More

Unless you love the concrete jungle this place is wonderful. We only did the marsh boardwalk and a stroll down the beach, but it beats the big city any day

Visited the park on a Sunday in July. Admission was around $15 for 2 adults. We went to ' west beach' to relax and go for a swim. The beach area was a bit rocky so it would be wise to bring chairs and to have decent footwear. There are picnic tables if you plan to barbecue. The water was... More

Had a great time biking from the start of the park to the very tip of point pelee, beautiful views and ride amongst trees. Very nice boardwalk along the way to walk amongst the marsh and check out lots of birds and alligators. Canoeing and canoodling was also an option. Lots of people all around on the holiday weekend, cooking... More

We visited Point Pelee National Park with a couple od friends and had a really nice time. Since we were staying right by the entrance to the park, we decided to walk, but soon we realised that we could not see everything on foot. We rented bicycles for $20/day within the park and managed to go all the way down... More

Visiting Point Pelee National Park and taking the shuttle to the Tip was one of the best parts of our trip. We took a stroll on the Boardwalk which was amazing. Lots of birds and turtles to see. A beautiful place to visit.
