Winter Camping

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 16 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.  These extremely popular units have vacancy available weekdays only for winter 2018/19. Reservations are required.
 
MacGregor offers a unique RV winter storage/camping option, too – these sites fill up quickly, so call ahead to check on vacancy.    Contact Janice at 519-389-6233 for booking information.  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.
