5 ways to have fun at Inverhuron Provincial Park

Vacation plan

Lake Huron park has great fishing, hiking, beachcombing and much more

No matter how long they’ve been on summer vacation, kids eventually start complaining that they’re bored. If you’ve got young kids, the splash pad will only buy you so much time. And if you’ve got older ones, it can sometimes be tough to tear them away from screens. The solution? Pack up and head into the great outdoors. While a simple change of environment can do wonders to entertain easily-bored kids, you can up the novelty factor by creating a personalized bucket list. That’s what managing editor Bob Sexton and family did when they visited Inverhuron Provincial Park near Kincardine, Ontario, in June, 2018. He describes five items on their Inverhuron to-do list.

Stay somewhere new

Like several other Ontario parks, Inverhuron recently started offering roofed accommodations for people who don’t own trailers and want options other than tenting. Opened in 2017, each of the park’s four camp cabins features a rustic wood interior, and sleeping room for five. There are two bunk beds with a double mattress on the bottom and a single on top. There’s also a kitchenette with a microwave, a mini-fridge and a coffeemaker on the counter. For cooking, there’s a bbq outside, though we also brought along a camp stove. Convenient and well designed, the cabins are steps away from the comfort station with flush toilets and showers. You can reserve a site or cabin online or by calling 1-888-668-7275.
