Turkey Point is a Norfolk County village on the northern shore of Lake Erie. The village name was changed to Turkey Point to reflect the frequent wild turkeys that passed through the area. The area is best known as a lakefront destination with sandy beaches and an abundance of water activities. The community is made up of year-round residences and seasonal cottagers. The Provincial Park that shares its name with the community is unique for featuring a golf course alongside its other natural amenities.

Before the municipal restructuring in the area, Turkey Point was considered a part of the Walsh hamlet. After 2001, many previous municipalities and townships were changed when Haldimand-Norfolk dissolved into two separate counties. Now, Turkey Point refers to the village on Lake Erie and the residences around the Turkey Point beach and Provincial Park. The communities remain connected through shared festivals and tourist initiatives.
