Step out into nature with a trip to Presqu'ile Provincial Park, a biodiverse landscape with both beach and marsh for you to uncover. The varied terrain provides 16 km (9.9 mi) of trails and hikes along lapping shorelines, shady woodlands, and lush meadows, creating scenic walks and perfect settings for both on and off road biking. A migration hotspot in spring and fall, the park attracts bird watchers and nature lovers alike, with the 1 km (0.6 mi) boardwalk trail through marsh lending itself perfectly to a spot of bird watching. Look out for the second oldest operating lighthouse in Ontario in the park, with a pastel coastline leading up to its welcoming visitors center. Bring a picnic and take refuge in one of the many picnic areas located across the park.

The park with the hard to pronounce name is on the same peninsula as Sandbanks and can be just as busy. The beach isn't as nice but it has other offerings such as a few hiking trails, one paved so easy to bike and scooter to a small lighthouse at the end, a marsh boardwalk, and you'll spot and get to tag and release Monarch butterflies. The staff are great and will take the time to explain the local flora and fauna. There are sites which are radio free but as usual, some campers do not follow rules and cause excessive noise. The washrooms are decently clean. We found the beach filled with algae at the end of August bur maybe its better mid summer.
Great park. Well maintained. Fairly quiet. Not overcrowded. A lot of things to do. Great kids programs. Great bike trails. There is even church service on Sundays.
