Cockburn Island is located in Lake Huron's North Channel and is only accessible by boat. While the island features a secure marina, there are no fuel stations or stores to purchase provisions. Visitors must bring all supplies and provisions they require for their visit with them. Visitors that wish to stay a few days generally lodge on their boats and bring bicycles or small motor bikes to tour the island’s sites. If visitors are interested in lodging or vehicle rental, they must arrange this prior to their visit with a ratepayer or resident of the island; there are no such commercial services available on the island. Furthermore, there are no camping or tenting sites on the island.
It’s a beautiful island, most points of interest are easily accessible but you must come prepared.
