PEI parks offer spectacular scenery, beautiful beaches and kilometers of nature, hiking and biking trails. The parks provide overnight camping, swimming, picnics, outdoor sports and many more recreational opportunities.
Many of the Provincial & National parks have information centers staffed by knowledgeable parks staff. Some also run educational interpretive and daily programs aimed at all age groups. The Provincial parks have ongoing Events and Programs throughout the season. The National Park is administered and staffed by the Federal Parks Canada.
Prince Edward Island National Park
is located along the northern shore of the island and home to over 300 species of birds and a variety of plants. You will need a Park pass to enter most national parks - these passes are valid for any National Park in Canada.
offer camping parks, day use parks and heritage sites. They offer something for everyone and promote an active outdoor lifestyle. There are many trails for hiking, biking or nature.
The Confederation Trail
is almost 300 kilometres long, was developed on an abandoned railway and runs tip to tip on the island.
The PEI Parks website linked above gives all the information on the Provincial Parks including a detailed breakdown of all the fees payable from day use through to camping. All offer tremendous adventures, exploring and general vacations in areas of outstanding natural beauty. There is a plentiful and diverse range of wildlife to see and learn about and is a fantastic education for kids and adults alike!
I'll finish this page with the same advice as the other parks pages - Do Not feed the wildlife, take nothing but photo's and leave nothing but footprints. Most of all - have a great time!
