Weekend Car Camping Trip to MacGregor Point Prov Park (2 full days, 1 night) to swim and relax on a shore of Lake Huron and to hike Bruce trail at Inglis falls on the way back

Swim in the lake and relax on a sandy beach, enjoy campfire and gorgeous sunset... This small but beautiful park on Lake Huron offers relaxation. But we will do some hiking (ca 14 km) too on the second day: on the way back, we will stop in Owen Sound to hike the Bruce trail to Centennial Tower and Inglis Falls... I booked 2 nice campsites close to the beach. Up to 12 people can be accommodated (6 tents maximum). Be prepared to share a tent if needed.
A pre-trip meeting to discuss gear, food etc. will be held on June 28, Thursday at 7:30 pm.

We will leave at 8 am on Saturday, set up our camp after arrival at MacGregor Point, have lunch and explore the park. We can swim in the lake and relax on the beach. In the evening, we will have a potluck dinner and maybe take a walk after to enjoy sunset.

On Sunday, we will pack up our camp and travel to Owen Sound to hike the Bruce trail to Inglis Falls. We will leave Owen Sound at about 4 pm and head back to Toronto.
