Point Pelee National Park

As part of the Government of Canada’s efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19, Parks Canada is encouraging Canadians to stay home and has suspended all visitor services and all visitor motor vehicle access to national parks, national historic sites, and national marine conservation areas, until further notice.

These measures are temporary and are being implemented to help protect the health and safety of our visitors, our employees, and all Canadians.

We know that the steps we are taking to help keep Canadians safe are an imposition on the many visitors who come and enjoy Parks Canada places each spring. We are hopeful that you will be understanding of the choices we are making under the unique circumstances we are all facing at this time.

Since this is an evolving situation, we encourage you to visit our website for regular updates and Canada.ca/coronavirus for the latest information on COVID-19.

For current pass holders, Parks Canada will automatically extend the end date of annual passes and Discovery Passes for the full duration of the suspension period. Find more details on how the current situation will affect passes. If you have made a campground reservation, we are also taking steps to help you. Find out more about reservations ‌on‌ ‌our‌ ‌website‌.

We appreciate your patience at this challenging time. We commit to keeping you and all visitors informed and we look forward to when we can all visit and enjoy Parks Canada places once again.

Situated at the southern extreme of mainland Canada, Point Pelee National Park is a tiny sanctuary supporting a mosaic of habitats from jungle-like forest to lush wetlands to open savannah.  Bike the 4.5 km trail taking you deep into the forest, or walk the boardwalk out onto one of the largest freshwater marshes left on the Great Lakes.

Open daily from dawn till dusk,  Admission from $5.40/per person, youth free


Please note work is underway on repaving the 7km main road at Point Pelee from the park’s entrance to the visitor centre. Park officials say that during construction, the park will remain open, but Visitors can expect long delays and lane closures. Visitors are encouraged to plan ahead by contacting the park at 519-322-2365 ext. 0.

The work is part of $9.9 million in upgrades. Other work includes the underground installation of electrical and phone lines, upgrading sewage treatment to protect the park’s wetland ecosystems.
