Many other things to see and do besides fishing. Sandy beaches are nearby at two popular Ontario Provincial Parks at Long Point and at Turkey Point via boat access from our marina. Check online for info on many of the area attractions such as antiquing, wineries and restaurants that you won't want to miss. There are two restaurants with available boat access/dockage for diners arriving by small craft, one in Port Rowan and the other at Turkey Point Marina Basin. NOTE: These are not 'gourmet' venues, but worth a try especially if you like people-watching over a beverage and a snack on their outside patios.
The protected waters of the bay and its marshes are perfect for the kayaker, canoer, windsurfer or the avid outdoors person too. Bass, pike, pickerel and yellow perch fishing are some of the most popular species anglers seek in both amateur and professional tournaments every year. Fishing licenses are sometimes hard to get locally, so remember to go online and purchase them before your arrival and be sure to print out the proof of purchase along with your license(s).
Birdwatchers also flock to the adjacent UNESCO-designated Long Point World Biosphere Reserve for the phenomenal birding opportunities. The fact that Bird Studies Canada is located only minutes away from Hilltop Lodge Marina is proof-positive of the plethora of waterfowl and songbirds that migrate through this region.
Lush Carolinian woodlands are also native to the area with a number of Crown Forest trails available nearby. The Hilltop Lodge property boasts the largest Hackberry tree (a rare Carolinian species) known in Norfolk County, towering over 150 feet above the waters of Long Point's Inner Bay -- not to mention the massive maples, pine and spruce trees.
HELPFUL HINT: We have found that the various mapping sites on the web often contain mistakes. Therefore, if you are using any such online maps double check it with satellite images such as G-o-o-g-l-e Earth and your GPS or in-vehicle navigation system. The GPS Co-ordinates indicated mark the St. Williams Lighthouse (we are the closest marina to the lighthouse) close to our Marina entrance channel. The easiest way to find Hilltop Lodge is navigate to the town of Saint Williams, go South and watch for the signs at the left (east) side of the road. From St. Williams, you'll be heading south on Townline Street till it goes down a steep hill with a slight turn to the left. Just as you're approaching this downhill slope, put on your left turn signal and watch for the entrance sign on your left for Hilltop Lodge Cottages & Marina as you're descending. If you get to the water, you just went a little too far. Make a U-turn and go back a few hundred feet.
