What’s Re-opening in our Communities?

As we all slowly begin to re-open across our region and try and resume normal life, we thought it would be helpful to share what is open and what restrictions are in place – so that we can all enjoy everything Georgian Bay has to offer.


Balm Beach Go Karts: Open Saturdays and Sundays 11AM to 7PM, weather permitting for go-karting.

Elmvale Jungle Zoo: Now open (weather permitting), but visitors must reserve a timeslot from their website. Payments will be made at Admissions (Debit/Credit/Cash) and not online.

Huronia Museum:​ Now open, however the outdoor pre-contact Ouendat village remains closed. Visitor bubbles of up to 6 people will be allowed entry every 30 minutes. You can pre-book a timeslot or walk-ins can wait for the next available timeslot.

Rounds Ranch:​ Now open​. Tickets can be purchased online or onsite by debit or credit. All patrons must stay one horse away from each other. Masks are encouraged but not required. To learn more about safety protocols, visit their website.

​Starting June 22, all other Ontario Parks campgrounds in regions entering Phase 2 will gradually open. Please consult the Ontario Parks website to see which parks are open and what amenities are available. Roofed accommodations (e.g., yurts, cabins and lodges, where available), park store and rental operations, visitor centers, and sports fields will be phased in over the next several weeks.  

Facilities such as showers, laundry, group camping, picnic shelter rentals and swimming pools will remain closed for the rest of the 2020 season. 


Please contact private campgrounds prior to visiting.  New booking and reservations may be required.​


Water recreational facilities such as outdoor splash pads and wading pools, and all swimming pools are able to open.​


Drive-in and drive-through venues for theatres, concerts, animal attractions and cultural appreciation are able to open.​
