MacGregor Point Park boasts ecological diversity. Seven-kilometers of coast along the Lake Huron shoreline accommodate majestic migrating birds, exciting festivals and events, camping sites, a skating oval, and marshes, swamps, and ponds. This all-season destination offers individuals, families, and couples an adventure in one of Mother Nature’s best works in Ontario.
Here are 6 things to do to enjoy the unspoiled features of MacGregor Point Park during winter weekends:
This unique RV program attracts visitors that stay for a weekend, several weekends, or even all winter. They get to socialize with the other RVers, keep warm at the electrical sites, and have a safe place to park their RV during the winter months.
Ice skating on the ice loop
One of Ontario’s best kept secrets is the 400-metre outdoor skating oval at MacGregor Point. It makes for an unforgettable family experience, and trail lights are even available at the site for late evening magical skating.
Feed the birds
Although most migratory birds head south during the winter months, some of the 200 species of birds found at MacGregor Park remain there. The visitor centre is also a fantastic spot to hand-feed nuthatches and chickadees.
Glide on cross-country skis
The park offers 11-kilometers of groomed trails, and several kilometers of ungroomed roads suitable for cross-country skiing. The Deer Run Trail is a gentle trail that takes skiers through hardwood forest and wetland areas.
If you to go winter walking, enjoy Huron Fringe Boardwalk trail near the Visitor Centre.
