Additional Location Information
Mainland parking areas at Birch Island, Ontario, off Hwy. 6 between Espanola and Little Current. Property is located on Jumbo Island in McGregor Bay.

McGregor Bay, Ontario, is a particularly beautiful, rugged area. The Group of Seven chose to create many of their spellbinding portrayals of the Canadian Shield here and in other nearby areas. Surrounded by the white quartzite of the Killarney Mountains, the Bay is dotted with islands and shoals that make a wonderful scenic vacation setting for those who enjoy an unspoiled northern experience.
Cottaging in McGregor Bay is unlike the "gentrified" version experienced in more southern areas of Ontario. Island living requires an independent and self-reliant outlook. All your supplies are carried in by boat, and once you're there, you won't feel like going out to a convenience store just for a loaf of bread.
Although we do have neighbors, you feel you have the place to yourself. Most of the land is Crown Land, and you may freely explore any island that has not been built upon. 98% of the shoreline is wild. 

Wildlife shares the Bay with us. You will enjoy watching them, but please do not feed or interfere with them. Beaver and mink will swim by the dock. Waterfowl are abundant. Loons dive for fish all day long, and their strange cries will fascinate you virtually every night. Ducks, cormorants, gulls, terns, Canada geese and the Great Blue Heron live a successful existence in the Bay. You will thrill to watching birds of prey on the hunt. Various hawks, golden eagles and even a bald eagle soar for hours on the wind currents. Bring binoculars.

People in the Bay enjoy a relaxed pace of life. They tend to create their own amusements. You can have an easy climb in the nearby Killarney Mountains, journey for a picnic at Red Sand Beach, sail in the stronger breezes of the Outer Bay, or paddle your canoe in sheltered bays and channels. Of course the fisherman will enjoy casting for smallmouth bass, trolling for walleye and northern pike, or just still fishing for yellow perch. You should also count on catching up on your reading. 
Peace and tranquility are aspects mentioned by every visitor. There is a spiritual aspect to walking through the cathedrals of whispering white pines. The totally dark sky will amaze you on a clear night. You have never seen so many stars, sparkling right down to the horizon, and the family will enjoy counting meteors. At McGregor Bay, people discover their contemplative side, and come away with their energies recharged. Residents feel uniquely privileged to share this special place with nature.
