Bordering Lake Erie, Rock Point Provincial Park offers 1 km of stunning beach. This beach is amazingly unique due to its exposed fossils embedded in the limestone shelf along the beach. It’s also a great place to go to view plenty of wildlife, as there have been over 260 bird species recorded in the park and it is the location of a monarch butterfly migration in the fall! If you’ve got pets, make sure to bring them with you. Not only does Rock Point have a walking trail specifically for them, but they also can have fun on the beach with the rest of the family. Overall, Rock Point is a beautifully spacious and clean campground!
As it’s right along the lake, Rock Point is a great place for activities like boating and swimming. Fishing is also a wonderful option here, as the lake features both large and smallmouth bass, as well as pickerel. Off the lake are some beautiful hiking trails through the park’s forest and wetlands, which will lead you to a viewing platform on top of the sand dunes overlooking Lake Erie. There’s a diverse array of wildlife you’ll get to see as you’re making your way along the trails!
The staff here offer wonderful education programs. Learn about the park’s animal and plant life while walking with a naturalist, or learn about the park’s cultural environment while sitting at an evening campfire.
Rock Point offers four different locations for car camping at their park: Kinsey, Niece, Minor, and Lookout. If you need electricity or have a large trailer, the Kinsey or Niece locations have you covered. If you want to rough it without any electricity, the Minor and Lookout locations are what you’re looking for. No matter which site you’re camping at, water taps, comfort stations, and laundry facilities will always be close by
