Phone: (705) 527-7200
Intro:

Nestled in the famous 30,00 islands, the world's largest chain of freshwater islands, Georgian Bay Islands National Park (GBINP) is where you'll be inspired by the rugged beauty of the Canadian Shield and the clear water of Georgian Bay! You will find waterfront cabin rentals, shoreline campsites, mountain bike rentals, a welcome centre, interpretive programs, picnic shelters, beaches and trails for hiking and biking which follow scenic granite ridges dotted with windswept white pines to picturesque bays. Docking facilities scattered around the island are very popular during summer with pleasure boaters seeking the great views!

Getting There: The park is made up entirely of islands and is accessible only by boat. Parks Canada operates a boat shuttle service called the DayTripper, which runs between Honey Harbour and Beausoleil Island (reservations are recommended).

Description:

For Nature and History Lovers!

Created in 1929, GBINP straddles two natural regions and is a core protected area of the Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve. The southern end of the park is dominated by lush deciduous forest. The northern portion of the park is rugged Canadian Shield. This mix of ecosystems results in a high diversity of plants and wildlife in the park. In fact, GBINP has more reptile and amphibian species than any other national park in Canada! Bird-watchers will tally an impressive checklist of breeding birds including Prairie Warblers and Scarlet Tanagers.

The park also has significant cultural heritage, having been occupied continuously for over 5,500 years.
