Point Pelee National Park has seen the biggest increase in visitors this year under a free national parks admission program to mark Canada's 150th birthday.

More than 130-thousand people have passed through the gates of the southwestern Ontario park billed as the southernmost point of Canada and a bird watcher's paradise.

To the end of July, visitors were up 66 per cent and local businesses say people started coming in May and haven't stopped.

The federal government will consider what to do with admission fees next year after the free program has been exceptionally popular across the country.
