New Camping Rules for 2023 (14-night max) – new for 2023 are revised rules about the maximum number of nights you can camp. In this park, if you are camping between July 1 and the Saturday of the Labour Day long weekend, you’ll be restricted to no more than 14-nights at this park. Outside of those dates, it’s still the old 23-night maximum. Ontario Parks promises this will be clear when booking.
Rules for backcountry camping and the roofed accommodation haven’t changed.

Camping & Accommodation
Hiking, Biking & Paddling
Woodlot Trail: About 2 km, you get to explore a variety of forest and wetland communities, including Carolinian, Oak Savanna, and old farm fields that are slowly being reclaimed by the forest. In places, the trail is not well marked. The map on the official website is some help. Recommend taking precautions around ticks.
Beach Walk: By far, the best walking option is from the day use parking area out to the Lookout at the east end of the park. The return journey is about 3 km and takes 45 minutes to an hour. You have the option of walking a gravel trail or along the beach, which is a mixture of sand and gravel. Out towards the lookout, you might find fossils along the shoreline.
There are no paddling routes at this park. However, people enjoyed paddleboarding and inflatable kayaks. Just remember this is Lake Erie so waves and wind can be a problem. Even though it’s the beach wear a PDF and make sure someone knows where you are.
