Georgian Bay

Georgian Bay takes longer to warm up than Lake Huron.

Cape Croker Indian Reserve
This is no a public beach but we do recommend that you go there on a day trip. You will get a warm welcome. Another good place to camp is at Harbour Park Campground

Lake Huron Beaches

Sauble Beach is a very long beach with half of it on the Indian Reserve. Most days in the summer you must pay to drive on the native beach. Of coarse you probably know about the excellent wave action and the world famous sunsets. - (sunsets photo)

Oliphant Beach

On the map we show one location for the beach but there are many. The location we show is where the washrooms are. The reason for many locations is that the water is so shallow. Some years there are no beaches because the water is up to the road but most years you must walk or drive out to the water. Then you can keep walking for a long way before the water is up to your chest.

Red Bay Beach

This is a lovely small family beach with a nice park. Water is shallow and warms up early in the season. You can windsurf, water ski, canoe and sail small boats between the shore and the islands. You must launch your boat at Howdenvale but watch out for the shoals.

Inland Beaches

If the Spring is warm, these beaches will be ready for swimming by May 24th weekend.

Berford Lake
