MacGregor Point

If walking and cycling are an important part of your camping experience, then MacGregor Point may be the provincial park for you. Featuring over 30 km of trails, boardwalks and points of interest, there is plenty to see and do. MacGregor Point has multiple beaches, 2 dog exercise areas and a visitor centre that features interactive displays and crafts for the kids, a good rainy afternoon destination.
The turtle pond area is interesting but is best seen in the earlier part of the season, as the water level can drop and dry up by September.

In my opinion the Algonquin campground is the best campground of the three in the park. This is the section with sites 1 – 136. The sites in this area are large and private with a large number of them being of the pull through variety allowing for larger trailers. The tree covering is heavy affording good privacy between sites and they are well situated in terms of proximity to the camp store, visitor centre and trails.
MacGregor Point also features yurts for rent for those brave souls interested in trying winter camping.
