The park was lovely and the yurt was amazing but the trip to enjoy peaceful nature was completely ruined by construction work at the 2 campsites beside us. Large excavator/digging equipment, cement mixers and VERY loud generators pumping out water all over our campsite went on all day long! Started at 7:20 am on Oct. 12th when every camper around was sleeping. Couldn't even stay at the campsite as it was SO loud. Would have cancelled reservation had we known, but no information was given. Asked at Park Office and was just told it would continue all day the next day too. Really ruined the nature experience and the whole point of renting a yurt in the fall when it's more quiet at the park. Not impressed by lack of response from Ontario Parks when email sent to them outlining our concerns and how it could have been handled better.

First time I ever seen Lake Huron was from the shore of Macgregor Point Provincial Park. Perfect location to view the sun setting across the water, which was clear, refreshingly cool, and beautiful. Wonderful place to camp. Like being on the beach with the sandy ground, surrounded by foliage. Very private. Didn't see any wildlife, Not a bear, deer or a rabbit. Quiet with the echo of happy children in the distance.

MacGregor Point provincial park is a hidden gem. We spent a day there cycling the many trails. I would highly recommend the old shore road trail. This is a 6-8 km long trail basically along the waterfront that takes you to many secluded beaches ponds and boardwalks. The staff is awesome very helpful. They also have a local bear population that live in the park and outside towards Bruce Power plant.
Highly recommended.

Macgregor point provincial park is a nice park with decent trails. Trails to the beach are good. beach is rocky, beautiful and serene especially if your able to find a secluded spot. Definite worth going on a pleasant day (do carry bug spray)

Trails
1) Tower Trail - 3.5km
The trail was ok - walkway was wide, shaded forest like and then open fields, lots of mosquitoes, ok walk, pics were ok, can skip if not enough time.
2) Kempf trail - 1km to beach - provides beautiful views of lake huron, its a rocky beach with nice relaxing spots to sit and relax. secluded slightly, less crowds, quiet and serene.
3) Huron trail - took huron trail from behind amphitheatre, walked to campers beach and then sunset point.
Sunset point was a nice spot for picnic and great place to take photos. (Bug spray is a major requirement, has lots of flies)
Would take the walk to sunset point if short on time.

Fantastic provincial park! Very beautiful and well taken care of. The campsites were large and had some privacy- lots of tree coverage for shade. Noise was never an issue during our stay, with people having a good time but being respectful of those around them. We liked that there were 2 lanes when entering the park (I had mentioned this being a problem at another provincial park) so one lane was for campers already registered to quickly enter, while the other was for people arriving or who had questions. Washrooms were pretty well taken care of- definitely better than in previous years, so you can tell they are making an effort for covid, but still room for improvement. We will definitely return here next year!

To date this one of my favourite parks. We visited here last September and were pleasantly surprised by the size of the campsites in the Huron Campground.

There is plenty to do in the park from swimming, hiking, and renting bikes.

In comparison to other provincial parks, this one offers more privacy between campsites.

A must-do for all camp lovers.

We walked the Tower Trail in September 2015, and this was a great introduction to MacGregor Point Provincial Park. A second visit four years later did not disappoint. This time we went to the shoreline and walked part of the Huron Fringe Trail.

I was there visiting friends for the day. The camp site was nice and a good size. We had a short walk to the beach which was beautiful. The washrooms were clean. They have recycling and trash bins. The park was very clean from what I saw. There is a lot of trails to explore. The other campers were great, very friendly. I would definitely like to go back and stay for a longer period of time.

Visitors centre has many displays and live animals as well. Grandkids loved the hands on stuff and many of the scheduled evnets that the park runs year round. They are also looking forward to skateing and hiking in the winter and feeding the many birds.
