There is plenty to see and do in Lambton Shores! This municipality located on the shores of Lake Huron has lots to offer and something for everyone in its five communities: Arkona, Port Franks/Ipperwash, Forest, Grand Bend, and Thedford.

Arkona is best known for its beautiful and luscious fruit orchards. In May, visitors can admire the beautiful blossoms on the fruit trees that decorate this small community. The Rock Glen Conservation Area is here, and offers a beautiful and peaceful location for hiking, exploring, camping or golfing at Arkona Fairways Gold Club, voted one of the best in Lambton Shores.


Both Port Franks and Ipperwash are located on the shores of Lake Huron, making these communities natural places to fish or boat. Some of the world’s most beautiful sunsets can be viewed from Ipperwash Beach. Port Franks offers 11km of walking trails through sand dunes and wetlands. This community is truly picturesque.

Forest is the largest community in Lambton Shores. Visitors can play a round of golf at the Forest Golf and Country Hotel or check out the Music in the Valley festival at Esli Dodge Conservation Area. Many annual events are held in Forest, including the Forest Garden Club’s Home & Garden Accents Show & Sale, Forest’s Farmer’s and Artisan Market, Homemade Jam Music Festival, and the Western Ontario Steam Threshers Show.

Grand Bend thrives during the summer season as visitors flock to the lively and beautiful Grand Bend Beach. Other attractions include the Grand Bend Motorplex and the Huron County Playhouse. In June, you can enjoy the famous mouth-watering burgers at the annual Optimist Burgerfest.


Thedford is a community growing in popularity as a crafter’s and antiquer’s paradise – with a number of shops dedicated to these pursuits along the main street, along with the annual Fall Fantasia Craft show that takes place each fall. Thedford’s rolling hills play home to one of Lambton County’s finest and most challenging golf courses, Widder Station.
