Been to Turkey 17 times thru the years, although inflationary high even we feel spending in Turkey is more expensive than UK. Costs has tripled on transport, food and restaurants are priced overly.

Spots for 3 tents and two cars. Our lot had two picnic tables, a firepit (with 1/3 grate) and good cover from trees. Sites weren't too private but as always, friendly campers nearby so no need to worry.

A man made short cut to the comfort stations made for a nice quick walk. Comfort stations were better than I had thought; showers, stalls, good water pressure.

Park for kids was a nice touch. Fire wood was $10 per a bag on-site.

Visiting Turkey Point downtown as a blast. Free Parking for campers. Arcade, Mini Golf, Ice Cream and lots of beach front to spreadout and enjoy.

We will be going again next season.

It was my very first time camping in one of Ontario’s more southern parks. The experience was very beautiful. We camped in October a late thanksgiving with my partners family. The park also hosted Trick or Treating on the weekends leading up to Halloween. Super festive, most campsites participated and gave out candy. Trick or treating in a brightly coloured fall forest is a game changer! The trees were vibrant orange and red. It was very beautiful.

Campgrounds:
Campsites at turkey point were quite large, probably some of the largest I’ve ever seen. My partner’s family were able to fit their trailer, truck, tent, hammock and table on the campsite and it still felt quite empty. The campsites offer fairly good privacy and are nicely spaced apart. I believe the forest is made up of old growth. The trees are big and fully grown. They almost loom over you like a canopy as you walk around the campground.

Lake:
The lake isn’t a walkable distance from the campgrounds. We had to drive a couple short minutes to get there. And the lake itself is not a very nature-scenic view. However, the lake beach looks like it could be really fun in the summer. Turkey Point is located by Lake Erie, a lake with reputation! Haha. The beach is sandy and sits in front of a few, small shops, and snack shacks.

Amenities:
Our first stop before even pitching our tent was the park store. Probably one of the smallest park stores I’ve ever seen… more like a park shack haha. But it didn’t bother me, I didn’t need any emergency supplies as I had thankfully packed everything, I just stopped in to purchase the park crest. But do with this information as you will! A store that sells camping gear if you need it is not close by! The drive up to the Park is farmland for quite a distance. I always appreciate park stores that sell essentials because you never know what’s gonna break or what essential item you’ll suddenly need. I don’t believe there were any canoe rentals at this park. I couldn’t imagine Lake Erie being a very canoe friendly lake. The washrooms are nice and well kept, nothing out of the ordinary for campground washrooms. The parks have little playgrounds scattered all throughout and I noticed plenty of families with small kids enjoying that.

Overall I think this park gives off really cozy vibes. I visited in the fall and I’m sure the experience would have been different if I visited in the summer. If I were to visit in the summer I think I would have wished the lake was closer. But the forest is really pretty, it’s definitely a park best suited for families and groups of people.

Excellent campsites, beautiful beach. I would rate it a 5 star however the park wardens walk around after dark and tell you to be quiet. We were 4 adults playing cards in a tent camper with kids sleeping and they told us to keep it down, a bit ridiculous. Never had something like this in 25 years of camping at provincial parks. The wardens walk around with their flashlights off, waiting to pounce on anyone making a slight noise. I saw them do this to another group of adults as well who we quietly chatting by their camp fire at 11:30 pm. Good for people who like a quiet, highly supervised campground. Not recommended for families or friends. Too bad because it’s a gorgeous spot.

First time there and I was impressed. Site180 was nice, relatively level, good fire pit placement. Campground was pretty quiet and rangers were active asking people to quiet down. Comfort stations were very clean, vault toilets not as much. Short hiking trails were nice and not crowded. Beach was short drive away. Water was clean and beach sand was very soft. Beach gets very busy on weekend. Get there before 10am if you want a good spot. Camp firewood was hit or miss for dryness. One bag great, two damp.

A beautiful beach linked to this provincial park. You do not need to drive to the provincial park to get access to this beach. Just directly go to the beach and park in the designated space of Ontario parks. There are washrooms, some beach side shops and plenty of parking. Well spent day with family and friends as beach is beautiful and pretty clean too.

Car camped at site 110 from June 25 to 28 for our first time at Turkey Point PP. Staff were friendly at check- in and we had no problem finding our site which was fairly private. Site was in the hardwood forest with plenty of shade. The site sloped down from the road which might be an issue in heavy rain, but we had sunny to overcast weather. There was plenty of space for our tent and dining shelter.

Unfortunately the site was not clean: beer bottle caps and tab pulls on the ground and several wipes/paper towels in the ground cover. The fire pit was rusted through in several places and the floor of the pit was about six inches below ground level making it necessary to get on my hands and knees to lay the fire.

Disappointed with the park warden. We are a group of families that traditionally camp together and then gather for a Saturday group dinner between 6 and 8pm. However, we were told to disperse right in the middle of dinner at around 7pm. Food still on the plates! We are very organized and always clean up afterwards. It was not covid related, it was noise related. Did our voices carry during this time? Yes, perhaps. Children's voices, friendly laughter, a traditional song sung before we eat. Isn't this the kind of living that we are trying to get back to? I really hope so.

I was looking forward for the visit to Turkey Point beach.. We went last Monday August 23rd, 2021. The beach was long, and water was warm in general, the amenities horrible as the washroom was a 1 composed one, that was not enough for all the people even though the cleaning guy was trying his best.
The beach need urgent pest control. it was TERRIBLE, full of flies that sting, even inside the water the flies were after you..
I am not talking about 1-2, I am talking that I could have 50 flies in my legs, and the flies' sting felt like little needles in your legs, really painful!
I had never seen or even thought that a fly could sting you, but those flies did..
Like me, many of the people decided to leave after a few hrs of trying to deal with the pest as we gave up, not being able to enjoy the area, eat or even talk in our beach chair. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS BEACH
