Dock status at Georgian Bay Islands National Park

Updated as of July 30, 2019

High water levels and ice this past winter have caused significant damage to docks on Beausoleil Island. When Georgian Bay Islands National Park opens for the season on May 17th, a number of docks will remain closed to ensure public safety. Park staff are assessing the extent of damage and will provide dock status updates when they are known. It is likely that the most severely damaged docks will remain closed for the 2019 season. Visitors are encouraged to plan their trip in advance. Please refer to the list and map below for affected docks and follow the park Facebook page for updates @GBINP.

Campsites located at these locations will open for the season on May 17th, however access will be limited to small vessel beaching or hiking in.

List of docks currently closed due to significant winter ice damage:

  • Sandpiper
  • Tonch East
  • Tonch South
