More about Turkey Point Beach
Turkey Point Beach offers many activities and amenities for guests looking to enjoy the warm waters of Lake Erie, especially those with younger children. Despite being one of Norfolk County’s top destinations in summer, Turkey Point Beach is a smaller, more intimate spot. The water has a designated, buoyed safety section to keep kids swimming in the shallow water.
There are 235 spacious, flat campsites available from May to October. Most sites are tree-lined and relatively private. RV pull-through sites, basic tent sites, radio-free sites, group sites and sites with electricity are available. Showers and bathrooms are located in close proximity to the campgrounds. Enjoy special summer programming and take advantage of the convenient Lake Erie Coastal Shuttle Service which operates on weekends and connects the towns, beaches, restaurants, breweries and wineries between Port Dover and Long Point. You’ll also find designated dog friendly areas, comfort stations, playgrounds, picnic shelters and a laundromat available for use throughout the park.
