Long Point Provincial Park will re-open on a limited basis this weekend.Camping reservations at the Cottonwood campground will be honoured while the Firefly, Monarch and Turtle Dunes sites will remain closed due to the threat of flooding.The park’s boat-launching facilities also remain closed this weekend for the same reason.“Affected reservations will be contacted by the Ontario Parks reservation service and offered to change their reservation without penalty where sites are available or cancel and receive a full refund,” park superintendent Jeff Pickersgill said Thursday in an email.“Park staff continue to monitor conditions closely to re-open the remaining facilities as soon as it is safe to do so.”Ontario Parks was forced to declare Long Point Provincial Park off-limits to the public during the Victoria Day holiday weekend. The cause was record-high water levels on Lake Erie and the threat of inland flooding.Water levels remain high but conditions this weekend will allow limited access to the facility. At this point, Long Point Provincial Park hopes to return to normal programming in time for the June 1 weekend.Long Point Provincial Park re-opens for day-use on Friday.
