The roads into the park are maintained, however only parking lot 2 is accessible as parking lot 1 (the closer one) is blocked off during the winter season. Therefore, we had to park at parking lot 2 and take the... More

A great place to explore and go hiking. The Bay's water is gorgeous and the trails allow a lot of exploration and tons of photo opportunities.

A very large park that has so many different attractions and different places to go. A park pass here will get you into many different locations. There are so many possibilities for adventures all within a short distance. The grotto is a must visit if you've never been.

Tobermory is beautiful as is the national park. Worth the drive. I'd stay over night unless you live nearby,.
