Bruce Peninsula Camping

Camp With Us

Get Back to Nature

Cape Croker Park features 315 campsites in seven campgrounds. Comfortably laid out, the campsites at Cape Croker Park are close to all you will need while you are visiting.

You could camp under a maple canopy in Ninaatigoog (The Maples). Or snuggle in with birches and aspens at Dibew (The Beach). Or be surrounded by fragrant cedars in the Rough Camping section of the Park. You could catch either sunrise or sunset, depending on what side of the bay you are on. 

Cape Croker Park is open the first weekend in May through to Thanksgiving Monday.

Car Camping

Come visit our 520-acre, family-style campground.  There is plenty of space for young and old alike to roam and explore on bike, on foot or by canoe. Sites are shaded, spaced out and able to accommodate a small tent or a large RV.  We have both serviced and unserviced sites to satisfy all types of campers.

Seasonal Camping

Travelling busy highways every weekend is stressful. Maybe a Seasonal Campsite is for you. We have over seventy seasonal campsites. We offer affordable rates, a long season (May to October) and on-site trailer storage. Seasonal campsites are available in Ninaatigoog (The Maples), Dibew (The Spring), The Cove and Shkaach (The Last One). 

Special conditions apply. If you are interested, please inquire at the Park Office. 

Wiigwaaswag Group Camping

Wiigwaaswag (The Birches) can accommodate 15 to 35 people. This campsite is in a nice private drive-in site. It is located on the north shore of Wiikwedoonse (Sydney Bay). It has a central fire pit and space for tents or trailers. There are picnic tables, and the site is serviced with two portable toilets. Our main comfort station, with showers, is a short drive or bicycle ride away. Wiigwaaswag is a popular site, so we recommend early reservations.

It sleeps a maximum of four and includes on-site parking. It is located just a 5-minute walk to the beach or showers. You need to bring your own, bedding, lights and camping supplies.

The Rememberer

Are there bears here – what kind – how big – how many – what do they eat?


Stories tell us that along time ago, Mkwa took care of the first Anishinaabe children, fed them and kept them warm. Another story tells us that each year during Mkwa Giizis or Bear Moon also known as February, bear cubs venture outside their cozy dens to play. If their play is brief, then winter will be long. If they stay out, then spring is fast approaching.

The bear is known as a healer and peacekeeper who taught our people about the medicines. Some of our people have bear names like Mkoons (Little Bear) or Mko-kwe (Bear Woman). Some of our people belong to the Mkwa Dodem (Bear Clan). Some people have bears as "spirit helpers."

Seeing a bears in a natural setting like out in a field or crossing the road somewhere is an exciting and memorable experience. However, this is not necessarily so in a campground or on someone’s deck. This is why we built garbage depots, purchased recycling bins and closed our dump. In doing so, we have given responsibility to our campers and visitors to help us keep bears safe. Bear is called The Rememberer because Bear always remembers where to find food.

Help us protect our bears and all other critters who share their world with us.

  1. Store food in your vehicle at night.
  2. Take your bagged garbage to the Garbage Depot every evening.
  3. Do not scrap your leftover food into the fire pit or around your campsite
  4. Wash out your recyclables before putting them into the bins.
  5. Keep your campsite clean.
  6. Day visitors please take your garbage and recyclables with you.

Our Park attendants will be around to encourage your continued assistance in keeping bears safe.
