Fifty Point

We only drove 155 miles east from Sarnia to Fifty Point Conservation Area & Marina on Lake Ontario. We’ll be here until Sunday. We have a spot with 50 amp electric (they call it hydro) but no shade. Currently there are several unoccupied spaces in this area. There is also an older part with lots of shade, but only 30 amp, which was full up. This will do just fine and we’ll be here until Sunday morning.

Fifty Point Campground

Fifty Point is in the middle of an internationally recognized Important Birding Area as part of it juts out into Lake Ontario making it a good spot to watch for migrating waterfowl and sea birds. We did meet a few birdwatchers on our walk around the park.

The park has two beaches, one that is pet friendly and a separate one where no dogs are allowed.

The marina has room for 330 boats and is one of the best marinas on west Lake Ontario.

Niagara Falls is only about a thirty minute drive from here so we will use this as our base while visiting Niagara Falls and the surrounding area again in the next few days.
