Winter Camping

Seems a bit early to be thinking this way, but plan ahead, book ahead for your winter camping adventure. Winter camping has become a popular cold weather getaway and campsites are limited during the cold weather season, so reserve your site well ahead of time.

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

MacGregor Point Provincial Park, just outside of Port Elgin has six 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 necessary as people love staying in these comfy quarters and they book up fast.  Sites are open for tent and trailer camping too.  Be sure to pack your ice skates, snowshoes and cross-country skis, as there’s a skating loop and plenty of trails for winter sports.  Love to snowmobile?  Use the park roads to tour through this beautiful park. 

Bruce Peninsula National Park

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 in 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.

In nearby Tobermory, be prepared to find only the basics open for business in the village during the off season.
