Fantastic birding and helpful staff.

We have been going to Pelee for over 20 years. It is one of the highlights of each year. My sister and I spend a week or more in the park and love every minute.

One of the foremost bird-watching spots in North America! Plenty of wooded trails, long point protruding into Lake Erie with ample opportunity to watch water birds offshore. Good butterflying in summer, flowers abound in the warmer months.

This is sharp peace of land entering the lake Erie. The wild life is fantastic especially the birds. There is also a large diversity of habitats. This is a very nice place to go for a relaxing walk and enjoy a little bit a wildness.

We travelled from Goderich along Lake Huron's coast to Chatham hoping to see some of the Underground Railroad museums but they were all closed. Our goal was to get to Point Pelee. We are glad we decid d to do the long drive. We were amazed upon entering the national park that there were houses built right on the shore... More

This park is in the southern most part of Canada and you can see a lot of migratory birds during Sep-Oct months. People can hike some nice trails, visit the tip of Canada, do kayak/canoeing in the marsh land, take a walk through the marsh board walk and visit the visitor center. A 2/3 days weekend is good to visit... More

We enjoyed our visit to Point Pelee National Park. We were there at the end of September; it was an off and on rainy day so it was quiet and hardly any one there. We used the transportation provided to the point but decided to walk back and enjoy the park. At the centre the staff were very pleasant and... More

You know, it's hard traveling as a family sometimes, but this park has it all. Flat paved paths for strollers, a boardwalk for easy walking. This is really an easy walk for any member of your family right down to one of the most beautiful shorelines ever. My 13 & 10 year old were blown away.
