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 getaway during COVID-19 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

Due to COVID-19, camping, activities and amenities have changed at Ontario's provincial parks. For the latest information on what's open and camping opportunities, visit Ontario Parks' COVID-19 page.

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 (these may be closed in 2021 due to COVID-19).  
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?  Stay on the park roads to tour through this beautiful park. 

Bruce Peninsula National Park

The Tamarack area of Cyprus Lake Campground is open for tent camping in the Bruce Peninsula National Park.  Surrounded by nature and the peace of the Bruce Peninsula in winter, this is a bare-bones basic camping adventure and geared to experienced winter campers.  Campers self-register on arrival at the park and reservations are first come, first served.  There are no flush toilets or water available, so pack your own water and remember to pack out any garbage. 

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