Long Point State Park is in a remote area, offering a peaceful, relaxing camping experience. Situated on a peninsula facing Chaumont Bay on Lake Ontario, the park is small and almost completely surrounded by water with great views from anywhere in the park. Campsites are fairly open and grass-covered with scattered trees, a playground and picnic areas. The bay provides a protected harbor for boats, and Lake Ontario offers excellent boating and fishing opportunities. Constant lake breezes keep the park cool and mosquito-free.
Pet Policy: A maximum of two pets are allowed in campsites and day use areas unless prohibited by sign or directive. Pets are to be supervised at all times and either be crated or on a leash not more than 6-feet in length. Proof of rabies inoculation shall be produced if requested by staff. Pets are not permitted in playgrounds, buildings, golf courses, boardwalks, pools and spray-grounds or guarded beaches (this does not apply to service animals).
Most New York State Parks charge a vehicle use fee to enter the facility. Fees vary by location and season. A list of entry fees and other park use fees is available below. For fees not listed or to verify information, please contact the park directly.

Ask a Naturalist!
Q: What are those mudballs on the gable ends of the buildings?
A: Those "mudballs" are actually cliff swallow nests. Cliff swallows build their intricate mud nests on vertical walls, and when one is home you can see its white forehead "glowing" from the dim entrance.
Q: Why can't I feed the geese?
A: Feeding geese can lead to many problems. While they may be enjoyable to watch, feeding them will result in too many geese in the park. Their droppings on the sites can be a serious health hazard. Also, the lack of nutrition from the food that people give them may result in a condition known as angel wings, in which the feathers curl and the bird is unable to fly.
Q: Why are there fences around the trees near the shore?
A: The fences are there to prevent beavers from chewing on them. Even though beavers can sometimes cause damage, they almost always benefit their ecological community. The structures beavers build provide valuable wildlife habitat for waterfowl and furbearing species.
