TURKEY POINT – MAY 2014
This was our site at Turkey Point – #90. It was large, fairly private and decently level. We had issues with our hydro connection on Friday night when we arrived. In fact, none of the posts around us had any power. We ran a long extension across the road to a campsite for the night until they fixed the issue on Saturday morning. Not sure why, but this wasn’t an easy site to back into. We ended up coming in from the opposite direction to back it in. I couldn’t make the turns due to the trees along the road.
The park wasn’t too busy as it was the weekend before Victoria Day long weekend. In fact, it was the first weekend this park was open! The weather was fairly decent which gave us the opportunity to play golf at Turkey Point Golf Course, just outside the campground. Here are some photos of this nice little course!
We spent the remainder of the weekend walking around the park and enjoying relaxing campfires. As always it was a fun weekend away. Here are some photos of our site and the campground:
I was impressed that my window film actually stayed on! I had to move it to the outside of the window in the door where the glass is smooth. It wouldn’t stay on the pebbly inside glass. Here’s a photo of that project!
Turkey Point is a nice, quiet, clean park close enough to visit on a weekend trip. We enjoy staying here. The golf course is nice as are the hiking trails. This was our first visit back in a couple years. Great time out! See the post below for links to the park.
TURKEY POINT PROVINCIAL PARK – JUNE 2011
Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain – and it did – all weekend at Turkey Point. Still, it was a really nice first trip of the season. A week or so before our trip out switched our site to a really nice, large pull thru. Glad I did, we walked by the first site I book and it wasn’t as nice as it looked in the park picture.
Our weekend consisted of 9 holes of golf at the Turkey Point Golf Course, a hike and a tour of the town of Simcoe. Sometimes you have to make your own fun when it rains. This time out I hiked The Bluff Trail between raindrops.
So, here are some pics of the trips:
Turkey Point as always is a nice close park to visit with a bonus of a nice 9-hole golf course. I’ve hiked 2 out of the 3 hiking trails at the park so far. We’ll be back again.
TURKEY POINT PROVINCIAL PARK – JUNE 2010
This was our first camping trip in June 2010. We didn’t bring our kayaks because this park had a 9-hole golf course and we knew we wouldn’t have time to do everything in one weekend. Our site here was a pull-thru and a decent size. One word of advice if you have small kids or dogs – watch them carefully. There was poison ivy everywhere! Although not directly on our campsite, it was all around the perimeter and on both sides of the 0ne hiking trail we hiked. Otherwise it was a clean, well kept campground. It was noisy at night until around 11:00pm then everything abruptly went quiet. The village of Turkey Point was cute and the beach was beautiful. It’s located outside the park itself, but if you’re into the beach thing, I’m sure you’d enjoy it. Our hiking trail took us to the Normandale Fish Hatchery, but not much was going there. The golf course was an awesome, scenic little 9 hole course. We are certainly planning on coming back here camping next year. It would have been nice to explore Turkey Point marshes with our kayaks had we the time. Long Point Eco Adventures are located really close and offer some really cool canopy tours. Next year perhaps!
And here are some other photos of our trip, including Turkey Point beach:
