Saugeen Bluffs is located in the heart of Bruce County along the Saugeen River.  It includes a horse campround with large, spacious sites tucked in amongst towering hardwoods.  The park is quaint and charming located approximately 4 km north of the Village of Paisley and only a 15 minute drive from the Lake Huron Shoreline and sandy beaches.

There are over 15km of trails in mature woodlands for both campers and day rides.  The park also features a shower building, laundromat, store and an activity centre, which is available to campers to rent (for special occasions), or utilize during your stay, free of charge with an internet cafe. There is a large picnic shelter and Event Ring available to horse campers, as well as scheduled workshops and clinics throughout the season.

There are also several other trails within a short distance making Saugeen Bluffs a great week long destination.  In addition, there are plenty of shopping opportunities in Paisley, Kincardine, Port Elgin and Southampton as well as sandy beaches, markets, the Bruce County Museum, and many other event opportunities and attractions.
