A day well spent but not ideal for large trailers | Erin Prezeau, July, 2015.
“After camping at Inverhuron the previous day, we then used our pass to get into MacGregor Provincial Park. We spent the day at the beach and taking a tour of the campground. Our kids seen snakes and turtles and got a private lesson on them. It was so wonderful! I don’t know if we will stay at MacGregor provincial park as we didn’t find too many sites that would accommodate our size trailer. We are off to Earl Rowe for a week next week!!”
