Winter Weather Notice

All NPCA conservation areas remain open daily from sunrise to sunset for passive recreation such as hiking and birdwatching. However, note that trails are natural and not maintained for winter recreation. Parking lot and sidewalks will be maintained on a ‘as-required’ basis. 

Conservation area visitors are reminded to take precaution and prepare appropriately for the weather and trail conditions, especially when inclement weather and conditions may arise. In the event of inclement weather, NPCA conservation areas remain open, but activities and services may be limited and facilities such as the Centre for Conservation at Ball’s Falls may be closed.

Please be mindful of NPCA staff who work hard to ensure primary parking areas are cleared and plowed when visiting. Please check NPCA conservation area pages on Facebook for closure postings, as these are updated regularly.


Located on Lake Erie, Long Beach Conservation Area is one of Niagara’s hidden gems. A unique place to camp, swim, sunbathe, fish, or sailboard, this property is perfect for memory-building.

Over the years, a grassroots community has grown at Long Beach, which you can delightfully experienced at both the Annual Camper Appreciation BBQ and Bolerama.

With only 225 serviced and unserviced campsites, the seasonal campgrounds sell out in a hurry, so don’t put off booking your stay, check back soon for more information. Day Use and Camping from Victoria Day weekend through Thanksgiving weekend.

Rules and regulations must be followed at all times. Admission fees apply.

  • Alcohol is strictly prohibited in day-use areas. 
  • Generators are only allowed for medical reasons and MUST be approved by the park superintendent prior to use. 

It is recommended that guests refrain from using charcoal when bbqing and instead, opt for the use of propane. Please note there are no receptacles to dispose of hot coals on-site and this poses a fire hazard.

FISHING WHEN IN SEASON:  

MNRF Fishing Regulations apply at the Conservation Area. For more information, please visit https://www.ontario.ca/page/fishing or https://www.ontario.ca/document/ontario-fishing-regulations-summary

INFORMATION EN FRANCAIS

Située sur le lac Érié, l’aire de conservation Long Beach est un des joyaux cachés du Niagara. C’est une place unique pour le camping, la baignade, le bronzage, la pêche, la planche à voile ou pour faire du jet-ski. Cet endroit est parfait pour créer des souvenirs.

Au fil des ans, une communauté locale s’est développée à Long Beach, comme on peut le remarquer au BBQ annuel des campeurs et lors de l’évènement Bolerama.

Avec seulement 225 places de camping avec services et sans services, ces places sont rapidement occupées. Vous ne devez donc pas remettre à plus tard votre réservation qui peut être faite à partir du mois d’avril pour les activités d’une journée et pour le camping qui débutent à la Fête de Victoria et qui se terminent à l’Action de grâce.

BEACH CONDITIONS & WATER QUALITY

Natural bodies of water are great places to play, swim and cool off on a hot sunny day. However, swimming in these areas is not risk-free. There is always a level of risk when swimming in a natural water body, whether it's on the shores of Lake Erie, jumping off a dock at a cottage or going to an NPCA beach.

Natural water bodies, such as rivers and reservoirs, are exposed to contamination from various sources. The conditions and quality of the water can change quickly due to a number of environmental factors. These factors can influence the level of bacteria in the water to the point where it increases the risk of getting sick. LEARN MORE.
