Elk Island Provincial Park, located 32 km north of Grand Beach, is about 900 hectares in size. Situated 1.2 km from the mainland, it is only accessible by boat. The island is virtually free of development and offers visitors an attractive wilderness setting. Parts of its shoreline where many, large, different coloured boulders are surrounded by smooth, white sand, are reminiscent of a stone garden.
Camping and open fires are not permitted on the island. Visitors are asked to help maintain the beauty of this wilderness, by packing out whatever they brought to the island.
