History of Our Park

Shore Acres Park began as a traditional campground for tents, but with improvements it has become a long-standing trailer and RV park. Gordon Ivey, the founder spent many years developing and improving Shore Acres Park. He planted many species of trees native to the Carolinian Forest, offered large green space areas, sandy beachfront and beautiful gardens. Gordon was an active and respected member of his Port Dover community. Gordon passed away in 2013 in his 94th year.

Since Gordon's time, Shore Acres Park has been operating as a two generation-family owned business. Marnie and Warren, along with their friendly staff, enjoy working with people, the outdoors and community. We look forward to improving and maintaining the gorgeous park that Gordon established for those who love a peaceful, relaxing camping experience.

For generations, our family has owned and operated farmland across Hamilton and the Niagara Peninsula. We sold our beloved peach farm in 2014 and purchased Shore Acres Park in April of 2015.

We have cottaged in the Norfolk area for many years enjoying quiet, tranquil and fun-filled times on the warm waters of Lake Erie. We have grown attached to the beauty that surrounds this area.

Our family and staff embrace the commitment, dedication and passion involved in maintaining and improving upon Shore Acres Park. Truly the best trailer camping experience in the South Coast!
