Prince Edward Island National Park

Located on Prince Edward Island’s north shore, PEI National Park is easily accessible by car and only 24 kilometres from the provincial capital of Charlottetown. The park is divided into three regions (Cavendish-North Rustico, Brackley-Dalvay, and Greenwich), which are separated by bays and not directly connected by highways.  

Free admission for youth. Other fees still apply.
Detailed fees list

Stanhope Main Beach (including parking lot) will be closed until spring 2024 while a new beach access is created. This area was heavily impacted by Hurricane Fiona in September 2022. The beach access was destroyed, and a temporary beach access was in place for the 2023 operational season. The new beach access will be west of the parking lot. Parks Canada looks forward to once again welcoming visitors to this location in the 2024 operational season. Stay tuned for more details!
