Murphy’s Point Provincial Park
by Gary McWilliams (aka Festival Nomad)
Murphy’s Point Provincial Park is located near Perth Ontario.
It is one of the many Provincial Parks that help make Ontario a wonder place to live, play and visit!
This park is particularly significant because it is part of the “historic Rideau Waterway (named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007).
We were in the area to visit a local event, Heritage Mica Days.
At the event we were told about Murphy’s Point Provincial Park and decided to visit it.
The park offers visitors both overnight camping sites and picnic areas for daytrippers.
This hadn’t been a “plan” visit, so we had neither camping gear or picnic provisions!
As a result, we were there to enjoy the absolute beauty of the Park!
The park is set up to make visiting the park an amazing experience… great camp sites, sandy beaches and serene picnic areas.
For water enthusiasts there are lots of opportunity to swim, kayak, canoe and paddle board
Part of the fun of visiting Murphy’s Point Provincial Park was exploring it.
Everywhere we walked or drove, we discovered something new and exciting!
A hidden cove offering an amazing canoeing experience.
A “pond” area with water lilies floating on the top of the water.
Swimming areas filled with the laughter of people, children and adults, having fun.
The sound of a lone boater coming into shore.
And a picturesque view of “Big Rideau Lake“!
Finally it was time to head home after refreshing ourselves at the park store.
Murphy’s Point Provincial Park, what a wonder “discovery“!
