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.
