Sauble Falls

Biking

Cycling is permitted on park roads. You may wish to travel by bicycle to the beach less than 3 km from the park.

Birding

Osprey can often be seen at the mouth of the Sauble River and are known to nest in the Isaac Lake area. Many bird species can be found throughout the campgrounds and along the river.

Canoeing

Canoe rentals are available on the north side of the Sauble River near the parking lot.

Canoe launch facilities are located at the portage on the north side of the falls for a leisurely paddle up the Sauble River. Many paddle from Sauble Falls to Country Road 8. When traveling downstream, this 10 km length will take about 3.5 hours. Here the river winds through farmlands and steep sand dunes. The Rankin River joins the Sauble just above the canoe rental and bridge at Sauble Falls.

Ask park staff for advice on paddling the river.

Discovery Program

Join Park Staff for a Discovery Drop-in during the months of July & August.  Bring along your Discovery Activity Book (or pick one up at the Drop-in), and use the equipment and materials provided to explore the park, observe plants and animals, and discover the wonders of nature.  Be sure to share your observations with Park Staff, take the Discovery Ranger Pledge and receive your very own Discovery Ranger Button!  For more information keep an eye out for weekly calendar of events posted throughout the park.

Fishing

Anglers will find the areas adjacent to the falls to be excellent for trout and salmon fishing in the spring and fall. The area of the falls is closed to fishing year-round.
