Alerts and Advisories as of: August 19, 2019
Many of you may be wondering how the high-water levels Lake Ontario have affected the park. The Outlet and Dunes beach are open, but the beach is significantly reduced. Lakeshore Beach day use area is closed due to high lake levels which has caused flooding of roadway, portions of the parking lot and unsafe beach and trail conditions. There is erosion of the dunes and during windy days high waves wash large debris onto shore. For visitor safety and resource protection, the Lakeshore Beach is closed as well as the trail leading from Lakeshore Lodge to the beach, to the public.
The Cedars and Dunes trails are closed due to flooding.
For campers and day visitors with pets, please proceed to parking lot 12 at Outlet beach. Our alternate location is Lake Land Day Use area.
Public safety and protecting park infrastructure is our main priority. Park staff are monitoring conditions daily and we will reopen these areas as soon as it’s safe to do so.
On busy hot weekends, we do anticipate having to close the park due to limited parking and beach area caused by the high water levels. Please be patient and visit www.pec.on.ca for other things to see and do in the County if you are unable to get into the park.
Follow us on twitter, Instagram and facebook for updates regarding traffic, busy days, potential closures etc. or call the park directly.
Thank you for your understanding and have a great day.
