Wiarton Tourism

Colpoy's Bay

Colpoy's Bay

Wiarton known for its famous Ground Hog, Wiarton Willie. Wiarton sits at the head of  the Niagara Escarpment known as Colpoys Bay. The long jutting headlands make sailing and canoeing the Bay a protected but magnificent experience, especially with the three islands — Griffith, Hay and Whitecloud — looking like a necklace separating Colpoys from Georgian Bay. The Wiarton area is surrounded by nature. Georgian Bay provides visitors with endless water experiences, and the surrounding parks means there are endless options for hiking and nature gazing. The famous Bruce Trail runs through the waterfront of Wiarton following it north from Bluewater Park – you can take a  hike to Spirit Rock Conservation Area. In winter- the village is alive with snowmobilers - who come to this area to experience the great snowmobile trails that run north and south of Wiarton. Enjoy a walk along the waterfront in Wiarton and have lunch at one of the wonderful cafes and specialty boutiques. Lake Francis Cottages is located 15 minutes from Wiarton.
