Decent park, good sites but there are many better options from Ontario Parks
Inverhuron's campsites are great when it comes to privacy, other than the fact that some of the sites are close to trail. There are some sites that are close to the beach but not exactly waterfront. So, when it comes to Inverhuron, I would recommend choosing sites based on privacy rather than waterfront. Some sites with good privacy are: 27, 68, 72, 159, and 169
