  • Great provincial park. We were located very close to the dog beach. We actually swam there. The water was clean, warm and very picturesque good size sites and great water pressure at the showers 
  • I've been here a few times over the years, and it's a nice place to get away for a few days and become better acquainted with nature. It's close to us, as it is about an hour drive away, so it's a nic...  read more »
  • Great for camping, relaxing, biking and hiking. Close to Port Elgin and South Hampton McGregor Point is one of our favorite camp grounds. 40 minutes drive takes you into gorgeous Sauble Beach for a da...  read more »
  • Just left the campground. Had a great few nights and was impressed with the privacy! The site was big and private with good gravel and drainage. The showers are older but nice. Another great thing is that they have double sites that are together for camping with friends and family. The Park Store lacked character and the campers beach was pretty cool but not the best for little kids. Overall, it is a great park!
  • Great campground. Nice private sites. Family friendly. Wish the park store carried news papers though. Girls looked at me funny and said I'd need to drive to Port Elgin Wal-Mart.
  • A beautiful gem of a provincial park. One of the best sunsets to be seen in all of Ontario, and a fascinating natural setting. Various ecosystems and microhabitats can be found here - the park's flora includes many plant species normally found together much further to the north, in the arctic/subarctic zones. And, of course, don't miss the pitcher plant marl.
  • We stayed here as a family and tried "Yurt Camping" for the first time. It was a good choice as it was early May and it was rainy and cold. So the warm yurts were great and comfortable. Seems like a well run campground as staff were friendly and people respectful and not any noise after 10pm. We really enjoyed this campground on beautiful Lake Huron.
  • We stayed in the electrical sites of Huron (Iris Grove) Campground Pros: - Campground programs are good for kids (e.g. Owl Prowl and reptile show) - The number of different bird species is remarkable, amazing place for Bird watchers. - sites are large and mostly private - Playground at the campers beach is really good - Visitor centre staff very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating Cons: - Septic tank for the Huron camp ground overflowed all over the Children's play ground equipment and sand at the comfort station... DISGUSTING - Because of septic tank issues, the comfort station in Huron was out of service for an entire day (Saturday) the park's "40th anniversary party" and the August long weekend... e.g. the busiest day of the year... you would think they would have pre thought some of this and had the septic tank maintained PRIOR to the busiest day of their year. - bad smell permeated the entire campground from the septic system for days before the system overflowed... anyone familiar with septic systems should know this is a problem... Staff should have managed the problem before it became critical. - the whole campground smelled of urine from men peeing in the bushes. (we had 3 sites, and all smelled like urine) There had been very little rain in this area in the month of July... so the campground never got "washed by nature". It is quite gross to eat your meals in what smells like a urinal - the campers beach is tiny for the 350+ sites - watch out for cyclists on the multi use trails, many do not know what they are doing and almost hit hikers and pedestrians - Do not let your children wear light up shoes when out on a night hike (Owl Prowl)... you need your night vision... and the light up shoes ruin the whole effect. Also don't let your children shine their headlamps in peoples faces... it is really annoying Unfortunately I will not be back to this campground, it left a bad smell in my memory
