Winter Fun at MacGregor Point Provincial Park

Ok if you are looking for a way to spend time outdoors this winter, MacGregor Point has all the right stuff!

They have built the coolest 400-metre skating loop through a summer camping section of the park and the best thing is, it is lit at night! So bundle up, bring your friends and family and head on over to McGregor Point for a night skate, or you can take in a day skate too $8.90 per vehicle! It is $4.00 for 2 hours per car.

They also have some of the best-groomed cross-country ski trails in the region, or head off and break trail to do some snowshoeing! Believe me you won't be disappointed. It is one of the prettiest Provincial Parks in the Province.

MacGregor Point also has a great waterfront area, so you could watch the waves crash over the ice or take in a sunset along the shores of Lake Huron. Or, look up and see the stars at night, they're awesome!

Camping in Winter, the ultimate winter outdoor adventure. Twelve yurts provide roofed accommodation; or bring your tent or trailer for a more rustic experience. A heated Comfort Station with showers and flush toilets is open. Reservations are required for the yurts and recommended for campsites. It is suggested you contact the park before leaving home for weather and snow conditions. Reservations for the yurts are a must please call 1-888-ONT-PARK (668-7275). You can call the park for more information at 1-519-389-9056.
