Bruce Peninsula National Park & Fathom Five National Marine Park

Tips for visiting the National Parks of the Bruce Peninsula

Visiting our local National Parks

The Bruce Peninsula National Park is a short drive from Summer House Park. The beautiful Grotto near Cyprus Lake is a must-see as well as a walk through the Parks Canada Vistor's Centre in Tobermory and a climb up the observation tower. Day passes are available for you to explore a number of excellent hiking trails or join in one of several educational presentations and interpretive hikes.

DON'T BE DISAPPOINTED - PLAN AHEAD: Bruce Peninsula National Park is extremely busy during the summer months. You must make reservations in order to visit the park.

It is best to make reservations well in advance, prior to your arrival to the Peninsula if possible. A reservation system for a 4 hour Grotto parking time slot allows you to plan your trip in advance. Visit the BPNP website below for booking information.

Fathom Five National Marine Park is the first underwater park in Canada as well as Canada's first National Marine Conservation Area.
