Nature Trails near Wheatley, Ontario

Wheatley is located in the amalgamated community of Chatham-Kent.

Nestled in the southwest corner of Chatham-Kent, the town of Wheatley (population 2,925) sits on the shores of Lake Erie and is known as the “Freshwater Fishing Capital of the World”.

Wheatley is a growing town where residents and visitors alike can enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle. Amateur anglers fish for perch, walleye, trout, and salmon on Lake Erie, while sport charters, commercial fisheries, and recreational boaters take advantage of the port facilities of Wheatley Harbour, revitalised in April 2010.

Birdwatchers descend upon the town in spring and autumn to observe the seasonal waterfowl migrations. Nature enthusiasts of all kinds make the most of Wheatley’s close proximity to Two Creeks Conservation Area, Wheatley Provincial Park, and Point Pelee National Park. Visitors can choose to stay at one of Wheatley’s many bed and breakfasts, cottage rentals, or at Camper's Cove,  the local campground

Wheatley celebrates its connection to the Great Lakes each year with its annual Fish Festival in August. The festival includes family activities, midway rides, a signing contest, and all-you-can-eat fish fry. Residents and visitors also enjoy weekly outdoor concerts held in Two Creeks Conservation Area throughout the summer months.
