Hit the pause button and unplug your life. Enjoy a real connection with your family, live, and in the first person. Camping on the Bruce means you will be recharged, and prepared for more entertainment options than you would ever find by remote control.
Cyprus Lake, Bruce Peninsula National Park
Cyprus Lake features 232 drive-in campsites. The campgrounds front onto Cyprus Lake, with each campsite equipped with picnic tables and a fire pit with grill. Potable water taps, cold water sinks and basic washroom facilities are located throughout the campground. The grounds are close to The Grotto and Indian Cove – a 30-minute hike along the 1 km Georgian Bay Trail or 50 minutes from Parking Lot 2. Although the trail to the shoreline is hard-packed, the shoreline itself is rugged uneven limestone. Be prepared; the decent into the grotto involves climbing down 40-feet over a rocky open cliff. Discover the spectacular cave at The Grotto and enjoy a refreshing dip at Indian Cove on a hot summer’s day. For more adventure, Tobermory is a short 15 km drive north.
Note: Cyprus Lake is booked very quickly for the summer weekends.
Yurt Camping at Cyprus Lake, Bruce Peninsula National Park
Yurts are a very popular choice for a camping experience at Cyprus Lake Campground, especially in the spring and fall. Relax and enjoy the lake breeze from your yurt deck. Cozy up to the campfire and watch the shadows lengthen at the end of a perfect day. Gaze up at the starry sky through the skylight dome as you drift off to sleep in a comfortable bed.
