Rock Point Provincial Park is a park located on the north shore of Lake Erie near the mouth of the Grand River. It occupies an area of 1.87 square kilometres.
The park contains a one km. well maintained sandy beach area overshadowed by a low clay bluff that separates the beach from the Carolinian forest above. At the east end of the park limestone shelves jut out along the lake shore exposing the fossils of marine animals from 400 million years ago.
One of the interesting things about the park is the fall migration of the monarch butterfly. Every year thousands of monarch butterflies congregate here before they take flight over Lake Erie on their wayto Mexico for the winter.
Pets are only permitted on the far west end of the beach in the day-use area.
