KNOWbefore you go
Please take note Many of the Ontario Provincial Parks with in the Bruce peninsula are NOT serviced. There may not be any facilities. No washrooms. No garbage cans. It is rugged and can be dangerous. The trails can be uneven, there are maybe crevasses (cracks) where people and pets can trip on and even fall into. It is a must to wear proper footwear in these areas. These areas, like other areas of the peninsula, may have rattlesnakes. Make sure to wear hiking boots, bring a light jacket and water. If you are bringing a child - make sure they are old enough to hike for a few hours if you intend on reaching some of the popular vistas. Baby strollers or other wheeled vehicles are not recommended at most of these facilities. Also, know that there may not be any garbage cans on the trails. Be prepared to take your garbage out with you. Please do not leave any garbage in the parks. This includes diapers, cups, paper plates. TAKE EVERYTHING OUT WITH YOU. This is nature at its finest and at its most rugged. It is yours to discover, but please take care of our parks. Do Not Litter.
Please do not ever have a fire and or BBQ in any of the parks unless it is in a designated area, or for emergency reasons. Fires for the most part are not legal, and if you have a fire or a BBQ you can face a fine from the Fire Department.
Parking is also very limited in most of the parks. ONLY park in designated areas. You will get ticketed if you do not park in a designated area. Do not park in the hospital parking lots. Do not park at the local school or the local stores.
