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 7am to sunset, dawn till dusk. Admission rates apply, youth 17 and under are free. (https://www.pc.gc.ca/en/pn-np/on/pelee/visit/tarifs-fees)
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 improvements. The work is part of $9.9 million in upgrades including repaving the 7km road, the underground installation of electrical and phone lines, upgrading sewage treatment to protect the park’s wetland ecosystems.
