Park Information

Camping


MacGregor Point Provincial Park has three campgrounds- Algonquin, Nippissing, and Huron. There are comfort stations in each campground. Electric sites are available in the three campgrounds. Radio-free camping is available in Huron. Sites are well separated, private, treed and have a level surface.

Sixteen yurts are open year-round but book early as they are in high demand. Yurts are a vinyl structure mounted on a wooded deck and they can accommodate six people. They have beds, chairs, a table, light, heat and an outdoor propane barbecue.




Swimming


Campers Beach and Day Use Beach are both sandy beaches with shore lines for play. Dogs are allowed on parts of the Day Use beach and on the pet beach near Huron Campground.




Walking and Hiking


There are six trails in the park ranging from easy to moderate difficulty. The trails explore woodland forests, wetlands, historical and geological sites and shoreline.




Biking


Fifteen kilometres of off-road trails allow you to get around the park easily and to connect to area trails such as the Rotary Way Trail which will take you to Port Elgin and the Saugeen Shores Rail Trail.




Winter Activities


Winter activities include cross-country skiing (11 km track set for classic), snowshoeing, and skating on an outdoor oval or ice rink as weather permits. Snowmobiling is permitted on park roads only. There are campsites and yurts for winter camping.




Kayaking, Canoeing, Paddle Boarding


There are no boat launches in the park. Caution should be exercised when using small craft on Lake Huron as water conditions change rapidly and this can be very dangerous. It is possible to launch small boats from the end of the Huron Campground road.




Birding


Over 200 species of birds have been sighted in the wetlands, forests and shorelines of the park. In the winter it is possible to hand feed chickadees and nuthatches on the boardwalk by the Visitor Centre.




Discovery Program


Children’s programs, guided hikes, evening programs, live animal shows, and guest speakers are presented six days a week at the Visitor Centre, the Friends Circle, or at special sites around the park.
