Details on Turkey Point Beach
Turkey Point Beach offers a variety of services and activities, particularly for families with young children who wish to enjoy the warm waters of Lake Erie. Despite being one of the most popular summertime locations in Norfolk County, Turkey Point Beach is a smaller, more intimate location. There is a designated, buoyed safety portion in the water to keep children in the shallow water.
From May through October, 235 wide, flat campsites are available. The majority of locations are tree-lined and relatively secluded. There are available RV pull-through sites, basic tent sites, radio-free sites, group sites, and electric sites. The campgrounds have close access to showers and restrooms. Enjoy special summer programming and take advantage of the Lake Erie Coastal Shuttle Service, which operates on weekends and connects Port Dover and Long Point’s towns, beaches, restaurants, breweries, and wineries. In addition to dedicated dog-friendly areas, comfort stations, playgrounds, picnic shelters, and a laundromat, the park has a laundry facility.
