About the neighbourhood
McGregor Bay has long been a popular summer destination for Canadians and Americans. The maze of islands at the northern part of Georgian Bay makes for great exploring, fishing, boating and relaxing. Nearby Baie Finn and Killarney Park and village are popular day trips.
How to get there
The island is water access only and about 15 min from 2 marinas. Access is in the community of Birch Island (On Whitefish River First Nation). Birch Island is halfway between Little Current and Espanola and about a 90 minute drive from Sudbury. Renters can bring their own boat or get a Water Taxi. Call J and G Marina or Still Water Marina for current boat launching, water taxi and parking costs.
