MacGregor Point Provincial Park

Welcome to MacGregor Point Provincial Park, Ontario. MacGregor Point is a seven kilometer stretch of beautiful Lake Huron coast. Silver maple swamps, cattail marshes, ponds, fens and bogs reveal unusual habitants. This area is also home to carnivorous (meat eating) plants. Migrating birds and the elusive spotted turtle stop here to snack. Lake Huron’s sunsets provide an excellent backdrop for the parks wetlands and woodlands.

12,000 years ago, most of Southern Ontario was covered by large glaciers. As these massive ice formations melted and retreated a variety of land forms and a lake were left behind. This lake was called Lake Algonquin. Over the years Lake Algonquin’s shoreline receded giving way for a vast network of wetlands, beach ridges and sand dunes surrounding what is now known as Lake Huron.

There are several excellent trail systems in the park such as Lake Ridge Trail or the Huron Fringe Trail which includes a boardwalk that allows visitors to examine areas not normally within reach. The visitor centre in the park will provide you with everything you will need to learn more about this fascinating environment.
