Point Farms Provincial Provincial Park Review

Reading Time: 5 minutes

Last Updated on April 7, 2024 by Cory Kawa

Situated on a beautiful stretch of Lake Huron coastline, just outside of Goderich, two and a half hours west of Toronto, is Point Farms Provincial Park.

For the second year in a row, we visited Point Farm in early June 2023. Read on for my late spring review of Point Farm, the town of Goderich, and everything the area offers.

Point Farm Provincial Park Review

Point Farm has become a regular early-season staple in our family camping adventures. The park offers a beautiful beach, fantastic sunsets, a relatively long and mild hiking trail, and a couple of playgrounds for the kids.

As much as we love the park, I almost love the beautiful town of Goderich more. Highlights include great food options, the Huron Historic Gaol and Huron County Museum, and the beautiful Courthouse Square.

Point Farm Provincial Park Highlights:

🌇 – With a western view over the clear blue waters of Lake Huron, the Sunsets are second to none.

🏖ī¸ – Clear blue waters and expansive views make for a fantastic day at the beach.

đŸĻ – The Huron Historic Gaol and Huron County Museum are must-see attractions.

đŸē – A great local brewery and restaurant at Cow Bell Brewery.

🍔 – Lots of food options not too far away.

đŸĻ – Besides the odd raccoon, wildlife has not been much of a concern here.

🔔 – Ringing the bell on the full-size steam locomotive in the Huron County Museum.

âšŊ – Nightly games of Gaga Ball after enjoying dessert at the Sky Ranch Drive-in.

The beaches I’ve visited at both the Pinery and Point Farms Provincial Parks offer beautiful caribbean-esque views over the crystal clear, light blue waters of Lake Huron.

I love the relatively sandy beach at Point Farms. However, with millions of medium-sized rocks, walking in the water close to shore is not my favourite.

Park Ameneties

Point Farm offers a variety of amenities to make for a fantastic stay, including:

đŸšģ – Modern, impeccably clean comfort stations.

🛝 – Playgrounds in both campgrounds for the kids. Although, I’m told the park in Colborne is the better of the two.

đŸĨž – A few relatively easy hiking options, including the 4km Old Farms Trail. Although the trails through the fields and forests of southern Ontario don’t compare to what’s found up north, they are a great way to stretch your legs.

🌅 – Epic views of Lake Huron from the up-high vantage points in both campgrounds.

Goderich Has Lots to Offer

We love Point Farms, but what truly makes this a fantastic trip is when you have time to explore all that the Town of Goderich has to offer.

đŸšĩđŸģ – If you’re looking for a bikepacking adventure, a continuous 132 km rail trail connects Guelph to Goderich.

🍔 – Great eating options include Cowbell Brewery for great bar food and beer; The Station and Sky Ranch Drive-in for fantastic burgers, poutine, and soft-serve; and Beach Street Station for views of Lake Huron and the Goderich Main Beach.

đŸĻ – Shaw’s Ice Cream, available all throughout town, rivals Kawartha Dairy in every way.

âšŊ – Great playgrounds, including a Gaga Ball pit behind the Sky Ranch Drive-in.

đŸĻ – Make time to visit the Huron Historic Gaol and Huron County Museum. You won’t be disappointed.

🏖ī¸ – Goderich’s main beach will rival anything available in Ontario.

đŸšĸ – Watching the boats from Goderich’s main beach.

⏚ī¸- Lots of events happen all year long at Courthouse Square Park.
