Because of the 5 month booking window at Ontario Parks, to reserve a specific (and popular) campsite for the August Civic long weekend, reserve now. Over 40% of reservations made by the end of March are for the most popular parks. Park staff suggests these provincial parks as alternatives to Ontario’s busiest five.
Birds of prey migrate by the thousands past Ontario Parks along the north shore of Lake Erie every fall.
Mornings are best to view this fall phenomenon – just after dawn until mid-morning and especially after a cold front has rolled through. That’s when park visitors gather on park beaches or in beach parking lots to watch the fall migration. Some days, the birds pass by at tree-top level. Other days, they are high in the sky. On a good day and with a pair of binoculars, you’ll see birds everywhere.
