Welcome to Prince Edward Island National Park

The park is open year-round, but most services only operate between mid-May and mid-October, with full services operational for the months of July and August. Entrance fees (charged when the picnic grounds and beaches are open, from mid-June to mid-September) admit you to all park sites, except Green Gables Heritage Place. If you're planning to stay longer than five days, look into a seasonal pass. The park maintains an information desk at the Cavendish Visitor Information Centre.
