I want to keep this review brief as to do any justice to/for the Park would take a novella's worth of words. The Bruce Peninsual National Park is a outdoor adventurer's wonderland... there is room to roam and explore for everyone from the nature walker, the serious hiker, canoers, kayakers, fishers, nature photographers - it's all there in this majestic and breathtakingly beautiful preserve.
I want to particularly hone in on Cyprus Lake Grotto - it is some of the best of the best of Georgian Bay, a truly beautiful locale that showcases the crystal-clear pristine waters of the Bay (if you're brave, you'll swim in those cold waters - and I highly recommend you do!). What makes the Grotto so fabulous is the underground cave to which strong swimmers can explore. Also, for the intrepid divers, you can climb the angelstone cliffs and jump.
For those doing more than a daytrip to the area, you can camp at the Cyprus Lake Park. The Grotto itself is about a 45-minute hike from the park entrance/camping grounds to its shorelines. The hike itself is fantastic and for the flora aficionados, an amazing journey of discovery for rare orchids, trilliums and ferns native to the area. Be sure to wear good walking shoes for the trek into the Grotto - and bring/wear your swimsuit, sunglasses, a towel and some sunscreen for day at shore's side.
For the photographer, you will be kept busy capturing all the amazing scenery and unique angles of the area. I've included a couple photos of my last trip in to the Grotto and the official website has even more great shots of the area and key information on directions, park fees/camping, hours open, etc.
If you're in Ontario and traveling through the Bruce Peninsula during the summer months or one of the many visiting Bruce Trail trekkers, be sure to make this a "must-see" on your list of things to do.
This is a gem of a place worthy its worldwide recognition and appreciation.
