If you are planning a trip Camping, Ontario is a great place to go!
Here are a list of Provincial Parks throughout Southern Ontario
Bronte Creek Campground
John E Pearce (Day use only)
From bluffs high above Lake Erie, you can see lake freighters, fishing tugs, sometimes a bald eagle and migrating hawks. Woodland trails blooms with unusual flowers in the spring -- yellow mandarin, stiff gentian, beech fern. Nearby the Backus Page museum celebrates the history of the Talbot settlement.
This park is part of a 40-kilometre-long sandspit in Lake Erie which is recognized as a biosphere reserve by the United Nations. It is a world-renowned refuge and stopover for migrating birds in fall and spring. Waterfowl viewing is excellent in March. Its delicate dunes and marshes also teem with songbirds, spawning fish, turtles and frogs.
Mc Rae Point
Port Bruce (Day use only)
Judging by exposed fossils embedded in limestone shelves along the beach, this peninsula was a coral reef 350 million years ago. A platform above the sand dunes offers the best view of Lake Erie, migrating birds and monarch butterflies. Now the Carolinian forests here are home to opossum, Canada's only marsupial.
Jutting from the shores of Lake Erie, this enormous crescent-shaped sandspit features delicate dunes stubbled with hardy grasses; and marshlands where herons, bitterns and rails nest. Beech, sassafras, sugar maple, shagbark hickory and tulip trees thrive in one of Canada's largest Carolinian forests. Sunlit meadows of prairie grasses grow here among towering oaks and pines in a protected oak savanna. Rare animal species, including the endangered prothonotary warbler and the eastern spiny softshell turtle, call Rondeau home.
Six Mile Lake
In Canada's sun parlour close to its southernmost tip, this secluded estuary on Lake Erie shelters many creatures. Migrating birds stop here, turtles sun on logs and herons wade in the shallow creeks. Watch for birds in the Carolinian forest and camp under oak and hickory trees.
