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

Turkey Point Provincial Park is free for day use from Monday to Thursday. Good half day trip for singles, couples, or families.

The hiking is not difficult and there are three trails to choose from. Younger children might enjoy the approx 1 km Savannah Oak trail. For those who want a longer hike there is the 2 km Lookout Bluffs trail.

If you want a more difficult hike, you can choose the Fin and Feather trail which will take you to the Normandale Fish Culture Station.

We went yday, a sunday, it was not a first choice but I purchased a permit anyway. First of all, the beach is not inside the park, it was outside thd park, down the road. In the park are just picnic areas and campgrounds. What we really like about Turkey point is that the parking is very close to the beach, the sandy beach is nice. It got extremely busy bec it was a nice sunny day and the beach is a close promixity to the street and other cottages. The lake is not very clean anymore ( I expected that bec its late in the summer) but still the kids enjoyed it. The worst part about Turkey point beach is the washroom close to us. It was filthy, it stinks and there was a lot of flies and bugs inside. I did not expect too much fr an outdoor washroom ( well coz its an outdoor washrom). But it should be relatively clean or at least improve it to make it not outdated. Since people pay to go in. They can also add a shower if possible. Over all it was not a bad experience but maybe we will not comeback.

Turkey point is a concoction of natural beauty, pristine beauty, coral sand beaches and some sumptuous local food. Fishing, boating and a separate children's park are just a few take aways from the location. As a local resident and a regular visitor. The public toilet 🚻 at the beach is in a horrible condition. The Norfolk County chooses not to take responsibility because this location comes under parks authorities. The cleanliness in the toilet is a huge concern for both hygiene plus a potential public health hazard in view of ongoing pandemic!. It should be a wake up call for the Mayor to immediately intervene and take corrective action.
