ABOUT THE AREA
Sandbanks Provincial Park
Renowned for its picturesque dunes and white sand beaches, Sandbanks Provincial Park is located on Lake Ontario 15 minutes by car south-west of Picton. Approximately 600,000 visitors come to Sandbanks annually to camp, hike or go to the beach. The most popular beaches are Outlet Beach (endless white sand and kid-friendly shallow water) and Dunes Beach (giant sand dunes, bay beach with gentle waters and playground).
Outside the gates of the park, enjoy a round of mini-golf at Caddyshack with frozen treats for the kids and a licensed patio for the rest. Across the street, the Outerbanks Deli features yummy local fare and all kinds of beach-going accessories, not to mention Espresso!
There are two main ways to get to the park; via East Lake or via West Lake.
Travel south on County Road 10 south of Picton , past Sunflower Fields ice cream then turn right on County Road 11 and follow it to the junction of County Road 18 past picturesque farms. Continue straight at the 4 way stop into entrance to the park. You might decide to stop for the art and peacefulness of Koi pond at the Mad Dog Gallery on County Road 11 or at the corner of County Road 18 at Fosterholm’s farm stand.
The other main way to drive to the park is down County Road 12 south of Bloomfield. Driving past an assortment of cottages and heritage homes, you have the option of stopping for lunch along the way or wait until you are installed at the beach to go for burgers, hotdogs, poutine, and shakes at Currah’s concession stand. Make a stop at MacCool’s Reuse for mid-century modern finds and antiques. Your kids may want to spend a day or two at West Lake Wakeboarding or West Lake Willy’s Waterpark on Winn’s Drive. Contact these businesses for kayak, SUP and boat rental. You can also rent kayaks directly at Sandbanks provincial park.
