The lengthy drive down the tree-lined roadway is breathtaking, any time of year. The Marshland boardwalk is always a favourite as it takes the traveler right into the heart of this ecosystem.Get close-ups of plants, insects and reptiles. Rent a canoe for a closer encounter! The DeLaurier Homestead with trails is always worth a visit.It explains some of the social history of the area. All the beaches are clean with many large permanent, picnic tables. The Interpretive Centre is small but interesting: all the guides are friendly and helpful. Behind the centre are two trails that go through more of this Carolinian forest region. Numerous exits off the main roadway take the traveler to various parts of the beach. Many have pavilions for larger groups. In the Spring, the flowering trees and shrubs are beautiful. In the Summer, look for the cactus clumps. In the Fall, enjoy the changing colours of the trees. Hiking and photography are great activities in the Winter too. Great every season!

A place absolutely worth to go. You can either drive or bike in the park. There are many parkings before every views. Very convenience. The main road condition is great, as well for biking. A bike trail is on the right of the main road, seperated by tress. The trail is not flat but easy for even beginers. You won't want to miss the Marsh trail. So beautiful. If you are a bird lover, you should go. Bring your telescope and camera. Be ready to take as many pictures as you can.

A great spring outing with the family. Walked the trails, enjoyed the birds and made it to the most southern point in Canada. Trails are well marked and easy to walk with young kids. Would be a great spot to head back during the summer with bikes. Parking is a challenge!

Despite some cold and wet weather, our visit to Point Pelee National Park was excellent. The park is not far from wine country and population centres but provides a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Birds and other wildlife are present everywhere and quiet pathways take you away from the noise of students on school trips, and other tourists.

The beaches had a few too many biting insects on the day we visited, but a staff member told us that was not the norm. There are lots of things to see, and we would make the effort to visit again. The entry fee seemed very reasonable compared to many places we have visited.

We visited here on a drizzly cool day but still enjoyed ourselves. There is a large visitor centre with friendly and helpful staff. We particularly enjoyed the board walk through a wetland habitat and also visiting the most southern point in Canada. There is a shuttle bus to take you to the point if you don’t fancy the 2.5km walk there from the car park: we did the walk - level and easy but don’t forget insect repellent. We saw lots of different birds, wild turkey and mink
