I’m a naturalist.
I work in one of the busiest parks in the province, yet I’m always seeking out a quiet meadow or shoreline to observe nature.
While known for our popular beach and access to Lake Simcoe, Sibbald Point is a small but mighty hub of biodiversity.
Every season has its perks, but for nature lovers and solitude seekers alike, fall camping at Sibbald Point is where it’s at.

Driftwood is my favourite provincial park. Don’t get me wrong, I adore Samuel de Champlain, but there’s something magical about Driftwood. It’s where I started my parks career.

Today’s blog comes from Heather Stern, the Discovery Leader at Samuel de Champlain.
I will confess: I LOVE fall. To me, it is the best season because it is the time when I get to go camping.

This doesn’t bother me, though, because camping at this time of the year is the best! The cooler temperatures and shorter days provide opportunities we don’t get in July and August.
And, to me, fall camping is just better at Samuel de Champlain Provincial Park.
