General Information

 

Long Beach's main attraction is easily its abundant beachfront shoreline. The sand and pebble beach is a natural playground for those who like to swim, sunbathe, boat, fish… the sky is the limit! Visitors can walk the shoreline for miles, or relax on the beach and enjoy the Lake Erie scenery. Those with a keen interest in geology can explore the exposed limestone rock that makes up part of the beach, and examine fossilized remains of ancient plants and animals.
 

Long Beach has over 250 campsites, washroom and shower facilities. It is the perfect place to walk along the beach, bike the trails, or hike the meandering pathways through the mature mixed forest. Be sure to keep you eyes open for wildlife and song birds. All visitors to Long Beach should be aware that there is a small fee to enter the conservation area.

 

Features include a sandy beach and 225 serviced and unserviced campsites. Launch your boat, fish, play bocce ball, horseshoes, baseball, or just enjoy your picnic while the children swim or play on the playground. The abundant beach shoreline is Long Beach’s main attraction. The sand and pebble beach is a natural playground for those who swim, sunbathe, boat, sail, fish, sailboard, jet-ski, etc. the list is only limited by the imagination. Visitors can stroll the shoreline or open a lawn chair in the shade to enjoy the great Lake Erie breeze!
