Long Point
Long Point and the Provincial Park are located on a peninsula which reaches far into Lake Erie. It is a perfect place to make vacations. Preferable in summer if you want to go swimming, wind surfing, water skiing etc. The beautiful sandy beach is a good place for families.
It also an attraction for many divers. About one hundred years old ship wrecks are the attraction. The park offers sites for camping and motor homes.

If you love boating you can do that here too. There is a boat launch in the park.
We personally would love to do some canoeing into the marshes. Owners of larger boats find a boat launch and docking facilities.
Long Point is attracts in addition many bird watchers because it is an migration stop for birds and waterfowl. Elizabeth, my wife, wants to come back in September when the beautiful Monarch butterflies have here a stop over on their way to Mexico. I still have problems to understand how a delicate insect can make such a long trip and how they find their way.

Some information about the history
The village of Long Point as well as the park can be reached by a narrow road which is surrounded by protected wet land.
Above picture was taken during our first visit in winter.
Despite the ice cold and windy weather we liked it here. There were almost no activities but the park is still a major attraction.
To stay here in a well equipped trailer or motor home is certainly a special kind of adventure. In Europe such vacations are pretty popular!
But I am afraid you cannot stay here in that season despite all the wrong statements of our tourism "experts" who declared Ontario as a year long destination for visitors. To find excuses for doing nothing is easier than to find solutions! We had so many European visitors who returned disappointed that almost everything was closed.

I hope that we can make Elizabeth's dream become true and we can spend some time at the Long Point Provincial Park. Besides relaxing on the beach we also want to explore the "biosphere reserve" which has been has been even recognized by the United Nations.
We do not intend to go fishing which is a favorite of many visitors of the park.
We must decide which kind of accommodation we will use. Camping is very popular and is provided within the park area. All other kind of accommodation is nearby.
The area around Long Point Provincial park offers many attractions and is certainly not a bad place to stay there. Shopping can be done in Port Rowan. Turkey Point with another nice beach is not far away.

All variety of accommodations are offered in Long Point

It is a relatively long dive to the park entrance.
You will pass many restaurants, marinas, cottages and other places for entertainment.
Even golfing is offered close by and I think also for shopping you must drive back to Port Rowan.
Fishing seems to be very popular.
