Inverhuron Provincial Park, Canada

Inverhuron Provincial Park is located on the shores of Lake Huron by the small village of Inverhuron, Ontario in Canada. Postcard CA-364103 shows the beautiful Inverhuron Beach and rare Great Lakes San Dune Ecosystem. 

The park first opened in 1956 with 351 campsites. However, with the construction of a nuclear power plant, Ontario Hydro purchased the park from the Ministry of Natural Resources in 1973 and limited the park as day-use only for safety and security concerns. After the Bruce Nuclear Development closed and the power plant decommissioned in 1998, safety concerns were minimized. On July 8, 2005, the park re-opened as an overnight camping site.
