Great experience. Beautiful weather, amazing vegetation and wildlife. Everyone should visit at least once. Gift shop could be bigger with more butterfly products.

Yes, if you are going into the bush, you must absolutely dress appropriately. But don't let the talk of ticks scare you away from this great park. There is a nice trolley to take you down to the tip, so no walking required unless you want the adventure. It was a 'gas' to stand at Canada’s most southern mainland point!... More

Went with my two sons who are on the Autism spectrum, one of whom has a snake phobia. Unfortunately, there's a big "don't run over snakes" sign as you enter the park, which ruined it for my youngest, who spent the rest of the trip terrified! Oh well. So we did the boardwalk, which, we figured, has the least chance... More

What a beautiful park. We paid $12 US to get in. Take the map if this is your first time. You can better plan your day. I would recommend bringing a picnic as you will want to stay several hours. We visited the beach. Found many beach treasures such as beach glass, periwinkles, fossils. The Marsh area is lovely, birds... More

It was a great visit. We were able to go right to the point and do some exploring. We also rented a canoe and went for a canoe ride out into the middle of the bay, Was a very educational visit for our two kids, and relaxing for us parents. Highly recommend!

Of course, late June is not the time to catch the migration for which Pelee is famous, but nevertheless it was a very worhwhile experience. The highlight was the Marsh Boardwalk, less than half-mile from the park entrance. It is a long, well constructed boardwalk (along with Tower and Blind if you are interested), that was packed with Black Terns... More

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
