Go swimming, camping, windsurfing, diving, fishing or take in the nature programs and visit the oldest operating lighthouse on the north shore of Lake Ontario. For refreshments stop by Whistling Duck Restaurant located on the Trail at Harbour St. or travel a little way south to Gosport (along Ontario St. or Cedar) for some freshly caught fish at the fisheries.
