Canatara Park reviews
We just went to the shores of Lake Huron as it was pretty cold and Lake Huron is just awesome as always. There is plenty of parking, and there is sandy beach too to be enjoyed in summers.

Nice beach . It's still early in the season and facilities are closed. The weather is starting to get nice, maybe summer will finally show its face. There is a ton of nearly kept trails, and the sunset / sunrise are gorgeous here on lake huron. I prefer the sunrises as there are very few people in the morning. Plenty of parking and benches to just sit and relax to enjoy the park. A note to dog owners, the beaches are off limits to them as the city has a bylaw in place, although I've seen a few people walking their dogs early on. Personally i have no issues with that as all the owners I've seen are responsible.
Great place to walk or bike. Lots of geese walking around so watch out for land mines. 😉 Beautiful place for families to gather. Beach is also a great place to gather in the nice weather. Love it
