    Great Provincial Park. Lake inside the park is filled with slippery rocks and is very dangerous. The view from the shore however is breathtaking especially in the evening, Beautiful sunset and great for stargazers. Plenty of great beaches close by to accomodate beach lovers. Park store is the size of a closet, the staff were rude and always close way earlier than they should. Lot's to do, Huge FleaMarket, nice restaurants and South Hampton. Going back for a repeat this year. Park is a keeper, Some of the staff, not so much.

    Free parking, free beach, no dogs allowed on the beach.
    Great beach with restroom facilities and a small takeout. Many boats tied up and coming in and out of the port. Some of the best sunsets in the world.
    Great place for a picnic

    The trail is good for walking, but I use to bike, because there I don’t need to worry about cars. It’s always clean and cool, the trees and foliage helps to keep the heat out.,

    I've been to this location 3 or 4 times now. Every time I go I have about 20-30 people, this includes a dozen kids. We get the group camping sites and its been great. There is a small play area for the kids, which is great and its possible for us to see them from our camp site. The person running the camp ground is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet! The bathrooms are great and the people are great. Quick drive to a small beach makes it perfect. Best is viewing the stars at night time. I highly recommend this place.

    Heading home from cottage country and stopped to pick up some fresh veggies! The farm extends behind the market as far as the eye can see.

    I was disappointed that the only products available for self serve were corn and cantaloupe! Produce is expensive - corn $7/dozen and $4 each for jumbo cantaloupe which were incredibly juicy but still green inside the rind. For other produce, you have to ask at the cash counter and everything is pre packaged.

    This policy may be the result of Covid precautions. I certainly hope it’s temporary!

    Using the review to talk about the port elgin beach.
    Nice beach with a friendly atmosphere. Great place to enjoy with family/groups.
    Adequate parking, beach is a bit small but has lots of facilities including beach volleyball.

    You walk quickly to a quiet glade like environment that is for the most part tranquil with whiffs of the smell of the forest. By and large an easy walk. On my most recent walk, was surprised by a middle age bicyclist who was descending one of the few steep pitches at excessive speed.

    its a nice track. weird at only 12 holes but money talks and houses need to be built. but the course is very well maintained and fun to play. the staff is top notch, very friendly and helpful. i would come back again for sure and try the burgers at the silo grill.

    While visiting in Port Elgin last week, we stopped into The Wismer House for lunch on their great outside patio. Service was prompt, the server pleasant and attentive and our lunches, consisting of Caprese Salad, Apple & Avocado Salad, (both nice and fresh) a Wismer Burger and an order of Sweet Potatoes Fries, were very tasty, and our wine and beer nice and cold.

    We’d certainly stop in here again the next time we’re in Port Elgin.

    (Sorry we missed the evening outside entertainment. The music sounded pretty good!)

    From you first step into Millcreek Chocolates, your senses are bedazzled. The aroma of chocolate encourages you to explore further. Cases of hand made chocolates have you drooling in anticipation. Hand pick a custom box to give as a gift or to hoard for yourself. The popcorn! It is absolutely the best! They do offer a variety of prepacked chocolates, some in colorful seasonal wrappings. How can you not want to go in and savor the experience.

    Very disappointed, have been going there for 15 years. The new owners have not keep us with the grounds, the main house gardens are a mess, the grass was not cut , it was a beautiful Saturday morning, they had no pies ready. No other baking on display. The store is now filled with toys, very little apples on display to buy. They are now charging 10$ a basket to pick your own, not a bag anymore , blaming it on COVID. It’s really sad. The previous owners would be very ashamed.
