We took advantage of the free National Park Entrance for Canada's 150 birthday. Very nice park for families, everyone to enjoy. We walked the boardwalk along the marshland, with people renting canoes and others kayaking. Would recommend to all.

Such a great park there are multiple beaches and many biking / hiking trail. We walked down to Pelee point but the actual point was under water due to high water level. Great place to spend the day
