Port Glasgow is located on the north shores of Lake Erie, only 45 min from London and a 90 minute drive to Sarnia and Windsor. The Port Glasgow Yacht Club and Marina is the perfect spot to launch or charter a boat, or relax on the beautiful beach while watching the busy boaters coming and going. The wild beauty and opportunity of still undeveloped lakeshore makes Port Glasgow a passive recreationists dream, whether bird-watching bald eagles with the West Elgin Nature Club or tramping through the guided trails of our local Carolinian forests.
The 50 slip Port Glasgow Marina, beach, small private airstrip and four nearby trailer resorts cater to both pickerel fishers and the more laid back vacationers.
A short 10 minute drive away, the main streets of West Lorne and Rodney give the casual shopper both value and choice while enjoying the pleasant setting of twin turn-of-the-century railroad villages. Port Glasgow hosts its annual Kids Fishing Derby, and the Port Glasgow Fish Fry. Plan your visit around the third weekend in July and experience horses up close and personal at ‘Cactus, Cattle & Cowboys’. A Farmer's Market, all-you-can-eat breakfast, horse parade, pony rides, wagon rides, petting zoo, live entertainment and much more! Free admission. The adventure begins at Graham Road & Main, West Lorne.
