Winter Camping

Reminder to check ahead BEFORE visiting. Hours of operation and admissions may be changed as per Ontario's most recent COVID-19 public health measures and advice. It's wise to Plan Ahead, Book Ahead before leaving home.

Camp in comfort in a yurt or trailer or rough it in a tent – it’s up to you!  Or perhaps a tipi’s more your style?  Choose your favourite or try them all this winter in BruceGreySimcoe.  

MacGregor Point Provincial Park

Visit the Ontario Parks website for the latest COVID-19 updates.

MacGregor Point Provincial Park, just outside of Port Elgin has 12 yurts - roofed, heated structures all set up for an easy camping experience.  Serviced with electricity, BBQ and bunk beds, sleeping bags and food are pretty much all that’s required.  Bonus:  they’re located close to a heated comfort station with flush toilets and showers.  Reservations are required and there are some COVID-19 retrictions in place.
For transient campers, there are sites available – be sure to reserve your site ahead of time.

Reminder - pack your ice skates, snowshoes and cross-country skis, as there’s a skating loop (lit up for night skating) and plenty of trails for winter sports.   Love to snowmobile?  Travel the park roads for a tour of beautiful scenery in a peaceful setting.

Black River Wilderness Park

Black River Wilderness Park, owned and operated by the Chippewas of Rama First Nation, offers a truly unique year-round camping experience in tipis and yurts. Set in 180 acres of Ontario wilderness, the Black River meanders through this beautiful setting.  Reserve your site by calling 705-689-2502 or email  

Bruce Peninsula National Park

As a pilot project for the winter of 2021-22, the 10 yurts at this rugged park at the tip of the Bruce Peninsula are open for winter camping. Cozy and snug, each yurt is equipped with a woodstove, beds, propane BBQ and more. Washrooms are no problem  -  heated comfort stations are a short distance away, with flush toiles, individual showers and potable water. Staying this roofed accommodation means there is no tent to set up - you just need to bring personal items and all the supplies required for cooking, sleeping and starting your fire and BBQ. Reservations are a must for these popular structures, so you may want to try a mid-week camping trip rather than the busier weekends.  Reserve online or by calling 1-877-737-3783.
