Presqu’ile light is a pretty place to visit but I’m really tired of the $15 day use fee that is collected by Ontario Provincial Parks. My answer is to head in the back way where it is free, which is awesome, but it does mean that I am being a “bad” person.
The same goes for North Beach and Sandbank and Ferris – nice places but not worth the day use cost.
As a result, I spend less time at the park, and no money at the gift store in the interpretive centre or at the park store. I’d gladly buy a couple of ice cream cones if not for the fact that it would cost me well over $20 for them.
That’s a shame, as the provincial parks should be affordable for families.
