Sandbanks

High water levels have reduced the size of our beaches here at Sandbanks Provincial Park. On nice sunny days, the park experiences long busy lines. We will be limiting parking spaces to avoid overcrowding and to protect the remaining beach and sensitive dune environment. 

The Dunes and Cedar Sand trails are closed  due to flooding caused by rainfall and high lakewater levels.

Lakeview MacDonald and Woodlands trails are open.

Beaches - Dunes Day Use area is open but there is next to no beach as a result of high lake levels. Visitors can walk through the water to get to the sand dunes. Please note dogs are not allowed on this beach.

                 Sandbanks Beach Day Use Area is currently closed due to excessive flooding of road and parking lots. High lake levels have significantly reduced the amount of beach. There is a lot of debris, driftwood on the beach. The Sandbanks beach day use area is currently closed. 

                   Outlet Beach Day Use is open, but high water levels have eroded away sections of the beach and reduced the amount of  beach available.  Please note the area by the Outlet River where visitors / campers can take their dogs is reduced.  Park at the amphitheater parking lot before the bridge and walk along the river to the beach which will be on your right.  There is a small area of beach to lay on the sand with your dog.

Campsites - there are several campsites in the Cedars campground that are currently flooded, we have been contacting reservations    affected several days ahead of their arrival to make alternate arrangements.


Due to flooding, high water levels and minimal beach areas, we are advising  our day use visitors with dogs to proceed to the following locations.

Mouth of the Outlet Beach River. In order to access this area, park in the amphitheater parking lot on the right just before the bridge and walk through the amphitheater to the beach. There is very limited beach to sit with your dog.

Lakeland Lodge Day Use Area. 2799 County Road 12 across from white farmhouse. Area is grassy, with trees and access to Lake Ontario for dogs to swim.  

Sandbanks Beach is closed for safety and environmental reasons.

Please clean up after your dog, thank you for your cooperation.


Ce que vous aimerez :

  • Plus importante formation de dunes formant un cordon littéral
  • Trois grandes plages sablonneuses qui selon certains sont les meilleures au Canada; la plage Outlet est parfaite pour les familles, avec ses eaux peu profondes et sa rive en pente douce.
  • Comme cet endroit se jette dans le lac Ontario, ce parc est idéal pour la migration d’oiseaux au printemps et en l’automne.
  • Sentiers de randonnée qui permettent aux visiteurs d’expérimenter la dune et les habitats des terres humides du parc.
  • Programmes d’interprétation quotidiens pour toute la famille durant les mois d’été
  • Excellent point de départ pour explorer le comté de Prince Édouard qui est connu pour ses cyclotourismes, ses vins, sa nourriture et ses antiquités.
