Wheatley Provincial Park is a protected area in the municipality of Chatham–Kent in Southwestern Ontario, Canada.[1] It is located on Lake Erie near the community of Wheatley and occupies an area of 241 hectares (596 acres). Visitors to nearby Point Pelee National Park often camp at the park.

A number of small creeks flow through the park which provide opportunities for canoeing and viewing waterfowl, though over the past 10 years[when?] the inlet and creeks that dominate the park have mostly dried up.[citation needed]

The park has four campgrounds: Boosey Creek, Highlands, Middle Creek and Two Creeks, offering both electrical and non-electrical campsites as well as group camping and radio-free camping.[3]
