MacGregor Point

Car Camping

MacGregor Point offers well separated and private campsites in three campgrounds. All sites are treed, generous and have a level surface. Several campsites are designed for use by persons with disabilities. Radio-free camping is offered in sections of Huron Campground.

Campsites are available for reservation and on a first-come, first-served basis year round. Birch Boulevard Campground is open year round with campsites available on either a first-come, first-served or reservation basis, depending on the time of year.

MacGregor Point also offers camping in 16 yurts. A yurt is a semi-permanent vinyl-covered structure that is 16 feet in diameter, mounted on a wooden deck about two feet off the ground. Yurts can accommodate up to six people. They have two sets of bunk beds, a table and chairs for six, electric or propane heat and electric lighting, and a propane barbecue outdoors. A dining shelter is located on the site. The yurts are open year round and reservations are recommended. Pets are not permitted.

Electric Sites
The large private electrical sites may mean that you need to bring an extra long extension cord to reach the electrical outlet.

Group Camping

There are two group camping sites that accommodate 9-36 people. Sites have water taps and outhouses on site. Comfort stations and the beach would require transportation. One of the two sites has trailer access but does not have electrical service. Reservations can be made online or through our call centre by phoning 1-888-ONT-PARK. When reserving online select “Group Camping” as your reservation type.

Radio-Free Camping

Sections of Huron Campground are a radio-free zone.

Fees:

The trailer storage fee for the On-Site Winter Storage/Camping Program is a $150.00. This fee allows the participant to keep their trailer on a specific site from Nov 1st 2017 to April 8th, 2018. This storage fee is due at the time of booking and is non-refundable. It does not include storage in the trailer storage compound prior to the program start or after the program end.

A minimum commitment of 20 nights is also required to be part of the On-Site Winter Storage Program. The 20 night minimum can be paid up front at the time of booking, or can be paid in 2 instalments of 10 nights on or before August 31, 2017 and 10 nights on or before October 1st, 2017. Full payment of the 20 night minimum must be paid by Oct 1st, 2017.

The fees for 2017/18 will be:

On Site Storage Fee = $150.00 (non-refundable) due at time of booking

20 Night Minimum Commitment
(HST Included)
= 20 x $41.25 = $825.00 regular rate
= 20 x $33.00 = $660.00 senior rate *
= 20 x $20.62 = $412.40 disabled rate **

* Reduced camping rates apply to Ontario senior citizens over the age of 65 and their spouse who may be any age and persons in the same party who occupy the campsite.

** Reduced camping rates apply to Ontario disabled persons and all others on the same campsite regardless of age. At the time of campsite registration, the person whose valid Accessible Parking Permit or CNIB Card is being used for the disability rate must be present.

If a Winter Program site is being shared, and discounted rates apply to only some parties, persons who are not eligible for the discount must pay the full rate or the difference between the prepaid discounted rate and regular rate.

If a camper does not stay 20 nights, this fee will not be refunded. If a camper stays more than 20 nights, the appropriate camping fee will be charged on a per night basis. Additional vehicles fees will apply if you have more than one vehicle in the park.

There will be an additional fee of $5.00 per day for leaving trailers connected to the electrical pedestal during time periods when campers are not on-site. This is the difference between an electrical and non-electrical site and is to cover electricity used if the trailer is connected. Please ensure that you disconnect your electrical cord from the pedestal prior to leaving if you do not wish to pay this fee.
