This campground is AMAZING! They are open all year long! It is a huge campground with various levels of privacy and can accommodate large camping groups too. The size of the lots will vary based on accommodation type (30'+ RV versus tent).
The online reservations site is extremely user friendly and they shows multiple pictures for each site so you can see what you are getting before you get there. Their website also gives a good description of the type of site you are booking (i.e., full/partial sun vs shaded, level of privacy, etc.).
They have huge bike/walking trails. They have a general store that offers a great variety of goodies. You can rent bikes of various sizes. Their beach is AMAZING! Bathrooms are super clean and are checked on multiple times a day. They gates are open until 11 pm. They are not far from the Port Elgin beach and the town has a lot of box stores and great restaurants if you want a night off from cooking.
The staff are always smiling and extremely pleasant and accommodating.
Lots of wild life to see and hear (turtles, frogs, variety of birds singing, raccoons, chipmunks, squirrels).
All around.... you just will not be disappointed. - Salen

The park needs a good cleaning up. Trash was laying around in several areas (shame on the campers). This park is a nightmare for a large rig. Limbs need to be trimmed on roads and at sites. I booked a site for a unit over 32' and had a 2" limb about 20' from the entrance of my sight at a height of about 10'. Instead of workers driving around they should try to work at making this park the jewel it should be. Our RV is 40' long. - illini777

MacGregor Point Provincial Park has nice large, treed sites. The sites are spaced well apart. We camped in site 334 and our friends camped in site 335. These sites are intended for two families camping together. They are connected sites, but still a good size. There are excellent bike trails at this Provincial Park. - treetime

Nice family campground with decent-sized sites. Trees in between offered privacy in Maples campground section. Some seasonal sites. Good-sized playground for children. Horseshoe pits for adults. Covered pavilion with electricity and tables. Camp store was only open on weekends but ice & firewood was available for purchase at gatehouse. Though no swimming pool, there was a small wading pool for children. Cell phone reception was available only near the gatehouse and not at the campsites. A 15-minute drive to Port Elgin where there is a Walmart. This campground is an access point (#11) along the Saugeen Canoe Route. - naturelover

Stayed for 4 nights. This is a nice beach and park, however their reservation system is not very good. Had to go there on opening day, to secure a lot. When traveling a great distance, this is not good. And: you cannot book 7 days in a row. - BikerGordy

Very large park. Sites are big and shaded. We had a little trouble backing into our site; not a lot of room to swing front of truck around, as road is very narrow with lots of trees and bushes. We would pick a pull through site next time. They are large and very private, (all sites are really private). Showers are fantastic! Beach area is nice. Rocky beach next to our campsite; can't swim there. But sunsets are amazing! Nice bike path/walking trail around the park. - Monique_F

We moved here after a Very negative experience at a nearby campground so I was delighted at the privacy of the sites and the scenic trails, beach, and pioneer cemetery. I would have like to have a longer weekend to enjoy all that this park has to offer. Staff was friendly and helpful. This is an unexpectedly beautiful park. We will be returning next season for sure. - ihatefishermanscove

This is a beautifully maintained and landscaped RV Resort and Cottage Community with a majority of seasonals in everything from travel trailers to park models. It really isn't a campground at all, so if you are looking for a "camping" experience then you've come to the wrong place. It is, however, very clean and has plenty of amenities including a pool and well equipped playground and splash pad for the kids. Contrary to some of the reviews, in our experience the staff was friendly and only asked that we not put more wood on our fire after midnight. There are a number of great tourist attractions close at hand as well. The price is a little steep in my opinion, but given the proximity to such a popular beach town, it isn't surprising. For those who are looking to pinch a penny, avoid the camp store. There is a small grocery store about 5 minutes away and there is local firewood available for about half the cost if you go to some of the "trading post" type stores run by the local First Nations. - JJ Spectre

Big rigs beware. We camped here with a 38 foot 5th wheel and had a very hard time getting around the hedges that line all the lanes and sites. We saw others holding back hedges for the driver to get out unscathed. Not easy to get around. - stil

Very nice place. Walking distance to the beach. The only downfall, you have to pay $3.00 to get to the beach because it's owned by the aboriginal people otherwise i would have given a 10. I would recommend this place to families with young kids. - Born to camp

Very clean and updated sites with all amenities and many more activities.
Very far from beach and unless you are at the front of the park, all the activities and pool are at the front. Many extras that are not explained during the reservation process, like each person is an extra $20 per night. Only 2 adults covered under the $60 nightly site fee. Very expensive for any extras required. - kmnpcampers

Very nice campground. Landscaped beautifully, everything is very clean and well kept. Indoor pool. Charged $5.00 a day for WiFi for up to 3 devices. Only complaint; there was a tractor driving by all day long doing landscaping and planting trees in another area of the park. Overall though, one of the nicer Ontario parks we have stayed in. - Bayfield2

We had a huge site with enormous concrete pad, shade trees and privacy cedar hedge between sites. Hookups were good. There is a wide range of sites in this park, some much larger and more private than others. The grounds were very well kept. Roads were gravel and a bit narrow in spots, but were treated to minimize dust. The pool was OK but not luxurious enough for "resort" designation. While close to town, the highway is not safe for walking or bicycling so you need your vehicle to leave the park. Very quiet at night. Staff were professional and personable. Washrooms & showers were clean but need updating. - sue123

Great park with lots to do and see at Sauble Beach. - shanec
Jul 2014 - $45.00
I would highly recommend not staying at this so called "Resort". Campsites are too expensive for a postage stamp site with zero privacy. Washrooms were disgusting. Service was awful. The owner is very draconian and feels like is a supreme despot/very rude. Overall our family along with two others will ne er camp at this location again. The town and beach are very nice. Unfortunately the camping was a huge letdown. - Yubbie

We actually stayed at this Ontario provincial park twice, the first time when we arrived on the Bruce Peninsula and again as we were leaving. It is a heavily wooded park along the Sauble River at the lovely tiered falls. We were told that we had missed the salmon running up the falls by a few weeks. At the time we were there, the East Campground was closed for work, and only the West Campground was open. During the off-season, the camp hosts will check you in if you arrive when the office isn’t open, which is very convenient – though the camp hosts only take cash. We were running out of Canadian money by the time of our second visit so arranged in advance by phone with camp staff to pay them when they came in the next morning. They communicated this with the camp hosts and all was wonderful. Our electricity only campsite was large and level and had a view of the river and the falls in the distance. The trees were beautiful autumn colors which was an added bonus. Price quoted here is in $Canadian. - ShoreXplorers

Classic provincial park with rustic facilities. Two sections including one with radio free area. Weekends can be a bit trying with party goers. Park staff are usually very young and have there hands full dealing with the weekend warriors. Pretty area with direct access to the Sauble River and nearby water falls. Electric sites and water are almost all out in the open. Bathrooms are cleaned 2 times a day, but are not for the faint of heart. - Tybrooke

We chose this park for its location, walking distance to the falls and the river for paddle boarding. While the park brochure and outdoor sign seem welcoming, the handwritten rule signs posted around the office were not, and the staff was not particularly helpful. In fact, if we hadn't already reserved and paid the reservation fee, we would have left and gone elsewhere. No WiFi. We were told there was a pay wifi (that the staff was not knowledgeable about) but we couldn't access it. Showers were available at $2. There was a 'security deposit' of $50 per site, refundable after we left. Give me a break - what is there to damage on a grass site? There was also a $8 reservation fee, not refundable, so in fact added to the cost of the site. Sites were not level, and on grass. There was a picnic table and fire ring at each site, with a $50 fine if you moved the ring. There was no dump station. We had a full service site, but there wasn't a second one for my brother's unit. Not a problem as he figured he would just dump on his way out. Wrong. No dump. In order to check out we had to wait for the office to open, wait for the staff person to call another person to go and check our site and then wait for them to process our deposit return. Fortunately we didn't have a tight schedule! We gave the park 3 stars, probably 2 more than it deserved for attitude and service, but there was a good playground and it had the location we wanted. We would never camp there again, we would go to the very nearby Provincial park which looked very nice. - D and M

This is a great little spot right on the water in Kincardine. I pulled into this park only 20 minutes after buying my first trailer, and we have been addicted ever since. In no small part, that is due to the welcome we received at Bluewater. The park manager was friendly and welcoming. When he found out that we were new to the whole camping business, he made sure that we were not left without any of those myriad provisions that new folks wouldn't know about (15/30 adapters, etc). I was only in town to buy the trailer and do some work locally the next day, so I had only booked a single night. We had so much fun, we stayed for the rest of the week. The park is small (I consider this a feature), and is a short walk to downtown Kincardine. The Beach (across a quiet street) is visible from most sites in the park. - ihatefishermanscove

Pros: Very clean
Cons: run like the military. Silly floor mat rule even though tents kill more of the grass.
Kids were told it was too early to play at the park (10:15 in the morning)
Creepy guy walks around at night with no flashlight telling people to get back on their site.
Heaven forbid if you sneeze after dusk as you will be warned of the noise. - Rohan

Going to this campground is almost like being in a military. The owners drive around the park all day to ensure rules are adhered to. There is no privacy (neighbours in your back pocket) and it is very open. You have to pay for showers. The staff at the front desk are very curt.
We informed the front desk that a tree on our site was infested with little white worms and they were falling all over us and our food when we were eating. The owner came to investigate and looked at us like we had three heads. We showed him proof and he never apologized, offered to move us to a different site or give us a partial refund. He just looked and walked away.
They have a FULL page of camp rules in fine print! You can't even tie a cord around a tree for clothes lines. They are very strict with campers listening to music. They have a speed limit for bicycles! Only mesh mats/carpets are allowed. Alcoholic beverages are only permitted on the individual's campsites. You can't even bring a drink to a neighbour's site.
We will never go back! Worse private campground ever. - Salen

Daily monitoring by unfriendly owner, told to turn down music at 1 pm in the afternoon, which was not loud. They do not want outside wood in the park, yet charge an exorbitant amount $8.50 for theirs which is only 5 or 6 slabs and burns fast. This adds another $100.00 or more to the price for a week. At 11pm they come and tell people it is 11 no music at all not even an acoustic guitar. Whatever they say about wood does not justify the amount they charge. We will not return! Incidentally, you cannot use outdoor carpet unless it is see through, ridiculous. - BikerGordy
