Cape Croker Park, owned and operated by the Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation, is a year-round Indigenous Tourism Destination located on the western shores of Manitou gichigaming “Lake of the Great Spirit” (Georgian Bay, Ontario). The Campground is open from May to Thanksgiving Day, while the Park itself is open year-round! The Park encompasses 520 acres nestled between high limestone bluffs. Cape Croker Park makes a perfect get-a-way for the whole family. With 315 campsites, suitable for tents and trailers, our large capacity can accommodate all types of campers. Electrical sites are available in some camping areas. Sites are comfortably laid out and close to all you’ll need while you’re away from home.
Cape Croker Park is a small part of the 2 million acres of our Traditional Territory. It contains rich natural beauty and has deep cultural roots. Our team of experienced Anishinaabe naturalists and guides offer access to these lands and cultural history through Anishinaabe Cultural Experiences. These experiences will introduce you to the Anishinaabek culture through guided hikes, art, storytelling, and hands-on learning, to engage all your senses. You will learn how we used plants for food, medicine, in ceremony and in daily life. You will hear stories passed down through the generations, stories of our deep connection to and understanding of the natural world. You will hear Anishinaabemowin, our language, and possibly learn a few words. After participating in the Anishinaabe Cultural Experiences, take a break with a swim in the beautiful blue waters of Wiikwedoonse (Sydney Bay), relax on the beach, and take home a bottle of our Award-Winning Maple Syrup from Ziibaakdakaan Maple right in the park, where we have produced maple syrup for feasting, ceremony, and trade in this exact location for centuries.
