Bruce County Winter Glamping

‘Disconnect without the discomfort’
‘Disconnect without the discomfort’

People are catching on: Glamping lets you enjoy everything you love about camping while leaving behind everything you don't. Glamping is about spending the weekend outside, without the toils of setting up camp. It lets you spend your day out enjoying the winter wonderland, but instead of sleeping on the ground, you sleep in a bed. Take enough of your own stuff with you, and it's as though you find yourself in the great outdoors without leaving the comforts of your home.

Glamping lets you sleep under the stars on a cold winter night without having to endure the cold or having a poor nights sleep. It lets you disconnect without the discomfort. Fill your days with outdoor activities like cross country skiing, snowshoeing or ice skating, and your evenings with sound sleep and sweet dreams in the comfort of a fortified shelter known as a yurt. Not to mention the nearby comfort station and washrooms.

A yurt is a round canvas structure that provides shelter and a source of heat. Often situated in the great outdoors, they provide plenty of comfort and cozy indoor atmosphere. Glamping out in a yurt in Bruce County is also pretty affordable which helps keep the experience accessible. Be sure to plan ahead and book your yurt glamping experience ahead of time.

Cyprus Lake at Bruce Peninsula National Park

The yurts at Cyprus Lake are the ideal baseglamp for winter activities in Bruce Peninsula National Park. Set out on a well planned excursion, and snowshoe to Indian Head Cove. Be sure to stay on trail along this remote and exposed coastline and be aware of icy conditions along the shore. Pay attention to the signs within the park and keep the time of day in mind.

See Hiking in the Winter to help you prepare for hiking the trails in winter.

Leave plenty of time for those 'after the epic' moments, nestled in the comfort of your yurt. Getting into dry clothes, preparing a savoury meal and settling in snug as a bug in the cozy round shelter. At Cyprus, stoke the wood fireplace to keep the comfort on high. Curl into your sleeping bag and gaze up at the skylight dome for a view of the night sky. Relax into the night and into a good nights sleep, rising the next day feeling rested and recharged. Kick off the week feeling the fresh rewards of getting outside, knowing you've hit the reset. And the feeling is glamourous.

MacGregor Point Provincial Park

The yurts at MacGregor Point Provincial Park are situated in a playground for winter activities near the shores of Lake Huron. With 3.7 km of cross-country ski trail accessing the wintry woods, the Deer Run Trail is a great scenic option for beginners. Lacing up your skates and touring the park's skating oval is a must; a slow dance on ice as it weaves its way through the frozen forest alongside Lake Huron.

There's nothing like a fine meal after a day of outdoor winter activities, and generally camping involves cooking over an open fire, does it not? Another glamping perk? avoid the white rabbit and cook on the BBQ. You'll be able to source your meal fixings in nearby Port Elgin.
