Book your room before you come.
Summer weekends are busy on the Bruce.
Most motels from Owen Sound to Tobermory are booked before 9pm on long weekends.
The main campgrounds are often full.
Some roadside campsites should be available.
Bruce Peninsula dot net is dedicated to show you the Bruce Peninsula through photography. We presently own Wiarton.ca, OwenSound.org, OntarioGuide.com and GlobalTourism.com. We will be taking the photos from these sites and adding them to this site in order to show you the unique nature of the Bruce Peninsula.
Note: DO NOT DRIVE down HWY 6 if you want to see the Bruce Peninsula.
South Bruce Peninsula
Very scenic along Georgian Bay and many sandy beaches along Lake Huron. (There is more than Sauble Beach) The Bruce trail is easier than the north to hike and has spectacular views.
North and Central Bruce Peninsula
There are many nice dead end drives down to Georgian Bay. Cape Croker, Hope Bay, Lion's Head and Cabot Head are to name a few. On the Lake Huron side there are many small sandy beaches but can be a little hard to find. The Bruce Trail is rugged in this area with some areas that require rock climbing. Also, there are many shallow inland lakes to enjoy.
Fish The Bruce Peninsula
Salmon fishing is good in both Lake Huron and Georgian Bay. Rainbow is best in Georgian Bay but can also be found at Southampton and Sauble River. There are Pike, Bass, and Pickerel in Lake Huron and the inland lakes but we would recommend that you get advice from a local tackle shop.
Camping On The Bruce Peninsula
Book your vacation well in advance. The best places on the water could be booked up to 6 months in advance. 33% of the campgrounds are on the water, 33% are a short walk to the water and 33% are overflow for people who travel highway 6. Notice we said water, some campgrounds are on a stone shore.
Snowmobiling On The Bruce Peninsula
Snowmobiling on the Bruce Peninsula can be good. Most years the trails are open from the end of December to the beginning of March. The trail requires about a week of cold weather followed with three feet of snow. Normal snowfall is around three to six inches per day until the lake and bay freeze over. It is possible to travel all around Grey and Bruce Counties and beyond.
Cross Country Skiing On The Bruce Peninsula
Cross County Skiing is quite good on the Bruce Peninsula because of the amount snow we get. Most of the towns have a classic trail and there is a race trail at Hepworth. The race trail is on sand; this means they only require a few inches of snow and the trail drains well for spring skiing. Visit Suntail.net
We have traveled from BC to Nova Scotia and have been to many scenic areas. We liked the Okanogan Valley, Quebec City and the Cabot Trail. The Bruce Peninsula equals any area in Canada for scenic beauty. There is only one problem, you must get off the main highway. If you only have time for a 3 hour stop we recommend one of these stops; Tobermory glass bottom boat tour or sunset on Lake Huron or Greig's Caves or the Grotto at Cyprus Lake, this is our favorite place. If you must drive the highway we suggest the back way from Owen Sound to Wiarton along the water.
We recommend Wiarton if you plan on doing a lot of site seeing. You are within an hour from anywhere on the Bruce Peninsula and can go shopping in Owen Sound on rainy days.
