The best Ontario beaches - Huron County Beaches

Huron County offer unparallel grounds for camping, which is an added advantage of the place besides usual waterfront activities. You can take it as the common feature of Huron County beaches including Saginaw Bay. These camping grounds, plenty in numbers, have been developed focusing upon the dual attractions of waterfront experience as well as the thrill of camping. To add up a more closeness to the nature, one can choose to walk miles in the offensive silence of wood in the Wagener County Park. In contrast, at the Lighthouse County Park, you can witness the strident sound of crashing waves at lighthouse shoreline.

The place does not go short of offering variety for the tourists. You can surely balloon ride over the county, walk down the forest trails or explore the enchantment of wasters at Port Crescent State Park. It is all going to be a time packed up with fun and frolic. As additional inviting activities in this waterfront location, you can also go for exploring the trails on a bike or go for kayaking.

Huron County appears to have a special concern for the artifacts; most of the museums have rich collection of 19th century artifacts. For example, Bad Axe Museum is known for the local history or check the Allen House Museum for collections from Dutch colonial era. The Elkton Log Cabin Museum offers enough charm of the historic log cabins. There are two Harbor Beach Museums - the Grice House Museum is the place of antique machinery used in the light house and the old prism light; and the Frank Murphy Museum with preserved Victorian style Home Law Office Quarters of the famous statesman from Michigan. Other museums are Port Hope Museums, Huron City Museum, Stafford Park Historical Chimney, St. Mary's Historical Museum, Pigeon Historical Museum and more.
There are a number of natural trails for the pleasure of skiing and hiking through unforgettable picturesque scenario. Some of the prominent trails are Port Austin Nature Trails having two natural trails; these are Port Crescent State Park and Huron County Nature Center. The Harbor Beach Nature Trails is located in Wagener County Park. Caseville Nature Trails composes of two trails- the Sleeper State Park and Sand Point Nature Preserve. The Sleeper State Park offers you both hiking and skiing. At the Sand Point, you can go for around the year hiking.

Huron County Beaches will let you witness the old world charm of lighthouses. Port Austin Reef Light was abandoned in 1953. But, the building was taken up for refurbishing as a museum in 1990. Harbor Beach Breakwater Light is the lighthouse, which is still in actual use. Charity Island Light is located on the big Charity Island and can be accessed by boat, water ski or fishing boats. The island is known for some rare flora and fauna. There is well settled picnic facility and pavilion.

The balloon flights are scheduled at the Sunrise and a couple of hours before the Sunset; in simple words, dawn and the late afternoons. You can imagine the charm of floating over the spectacular scenario of Huron County.
