MacGregor Point Provincial Park

MacGregor Point is one of the most unique natural places along the Lake Huron shoreline. A complex ecosystem unfolds at this all-season park on a seven-kilometre stretch of coast, just south of Port Elgin. Numerous hiking and cycling trails allow access throughout the park as well as the Gore Drain Trail link to Port Elgin. Park interpreters offer a full summer program of activities including guided walks by the shore and through silver maple swamps, cattail marshes, ponds, fens and bogs that reveal unusual inhabitants. A Ducks Unlimited wetland within the park augments the habitat for waterfowl and countless other animals. Learn about the carnivorous plants that make this area their home. Rare Dwarf Lake Iris and the elusive Spotted Turtle appear in the spring. MacGregor Point is a well-known spot to look for migrating birds, including warblers, Black-crowned Night Heron and American Egret.

The park hosts a popular spring Huron Fringe Birding Festival and Wild for the Arts fall arts festival. The third weekend in October, Witches in the Woods celebrates Hallowe’en and the forest creatures closely linked to it. Campers decorate their sites, trick or treat and explore nature in fall. Winter visitors can camp in yurts, snow shoe, cross-country ski, and ice skate on a 400 metre skating oval (weather permitting).
