Important information about your visit to PEI National Park

Given the COVID-19 situation, visitors are reminded that they are always responsible for their own safety. Parks Canada continues to ask visitors to practice good trail etiquette and respect two-meter physical distancing as well as enhanced hygiene requirements when they visit places administered by Parks Canada on PEI.

Visitors should be prepared to be self-sufficient when they visit and pack extra hygiene supplies such as hand sanitizer and wipes, and bring their own water and food. Visitors should also pack out any refuse from locations where no waste receptacles are available.
