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

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.


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.
