Long Point Portage

This historic portage was an important link in the canoe route along the north shore of Lake Erie. It was first recorded by Dollier de Cassson and de Galinee in 1670. During August, 1812, the men who accompanied Brock from Dover to Detroit, found it difficult to pull the boats over the portage and called for help from men in the other boats. They could not find the creek so spent the night amid the rushes.
The Provincial plaque is just inside the entrance to the Long Point Provincial Park.
