To get the most out the cooler Canadian months, visit Sibbald Point Provincial Park. This park boasts some of the best ice fishing in Ontario for jumbo Yellow perch and Whitefish. During the winter season, the sheltered bay on the shore of Lake Simcoe provides the perfect location to walk-out on the ice for a fishing experience like no other. And, when the summer months arrive, this park will continue to amaze you. With two distinct trails, you get the best of both worlds; spectacular nature mixed with local cultural history. One trail brings you through the rich history of the Sibbald Family. You can explore the Eildon Hall Museum (formerly the Sibbald Family Estate), a settler’s cabin, and a graveyard. This is the burial site of famous Canadian authors, Stephen Butler Leacock and Mazo de la Roche. For the more natural features, there is a self-guided loop trail that takes you past various ecosystems, like deciduous forests and swamp woodlands covered in cattails and silver maple. Another inviting feature is the blue waters of Lake Simcoe and the sandy beaches of the park. They are the perfect spot for relaxing and going for a cooling swim.
