“Dramatic cliffs rise from the turquoise waters of Georgian Bay. In large tracts of forest, black bears roam and rare reptiles find refuge in rocky areas and diverse wetlands. Ancient cedar trees spiral from the cliff-edge; a multitude of orchids and ferns take root in a mosaic of habitats. And the night is brilliant with stars in this Dark Sky Preserve. Welcome to the magic of Bruce Peninsula National Park.” This quote from Parks Canada describes the National Park but it says so much about the area itself – scenic beauty, wildlife, natural wonders and a magical place to visit.
