Important information about your visit to Bruce Peninsula National Park and Fathom Five National Marine Park

November 1 to April 30

Bruce Peninsula National Park is in off-season operations from November 1 to April 30. Park facilities are in self-serve mode or closed. The park is a remote, wilderness area and conditions can be dangerous especially during winter. Road access to some areas are closed from the first snow fall. Visitors must be prepared for limited services and their own safety. Make sure your vehicle is equipped for local road conditions (snow tires recommended) and your gas tank is full. Limited services are available in nearby towns such as Tobermory or Lion’s Head.

Before visiting, please read the winter safety page.
