Prince Edward Island National Park

Hurricane Fiona

Parks Canada reminds the public that while some sections of PEI National Park are open for Islanders and other visitors to enjoy, the 2022 operational season has concluded so facilities (e.g., beach complexes, visitor centres, day use areas) are now closed as usual for this time of year. There will be limited emergency service provided by Parks Canada. By entering the park, you agree to use the park at your own risk.

Unmarked hazards and unsafe conditions are present throughout the park including; dangerous trees, undercut and eroded shoreline, unstable or missing beach access infrastructure, washed out roads and pathways, and exposed utilities. Please abide by all closures, signage and barricades; they are there for your safety.

For more information see post-Hurricane Fiona recovery updates.

Gentle surf strokes sandy beaches alongside red cliffs and wind-sculpted dunes. Cycle a seashore path, savour a picnic by a lighthouse and spot heron wading in coastal bays. Hike woodlands and overlook ponds watching for red fox, waterfowl and warblers, then head to one of many beaches to build spectacular sandcastles. At sunset, roast marshmallows over a campfire listening to tales and songs - Prince Edward Island National Park is a giant playground for kids of all ages.
