Turkey Point

Turkey Point, Norfolk County, Ontario

Turkey Point is a beach community located on the north shore of Lake Erie in southwestern Ontario. Although named after a once abundant number of wild turkeys in the area, today this thriving town is perhaps best known for clean sandy beaches, lush parks and upscale cottages. Situated in close proximity to large city centres such as London, Hamilton and Toronto makes this village a perfect summer get away for many of the larger city residents. In comparison, for those who permanently call Turkey Point home, an hour or two long drive will result in a day trip to the big city. Visitors and residents alike can enjoy the wildlife viewing, the rolling landscape and fresh water of Lake Erie at Turkey Point Provincial Park. This park is the only Ontario provincial park that encompasses a golf course. The Backus Heritage Conservation Area gives those seeking knowledge pertaining to the history of nature’s path in the area and its possible future. The park also provides a campground, nature walks and a learning interpretive centre. The Turkey Point Summer Fest is one of the highlights of the season and takes place in mid August, showcasing a variety of music arts and family events.
