Huron Kinloss Beaches

Boiler Beach

Rocks scattered at intervals along this sand beach only add to its attractiveness to beachgoers! Another wonderful beach for younger children as the lake bottom has a gentle grade to deeper waters. Large rocks are visible in the water but not enough to hamper water play. This is a popular beach with the residents and cottagers along the road.

In the North Township you will find the remains of the Erie Belle, a Great Lakes Steamer that exploded along the shoreline of Lake Huron on November 21, 1883.  Built in 1864, it served the USA's east coast during the Civil War era, and sailed as a packet steamer on Lake Erie for many years, until it sunk and was rebuilt as a tug.  At the time of the explosion, the Erie Belle was trying to rescue a schooner that had drifted in the water during a terrible storm.  The blast killed four of the twelve men on board and destroyed the ship.  All that remains of the Erie Belle today is the boiler (the cause of the explosion), which now rests on the sandy beach.  The area has for decades been known as Boiler Beach.

ACCESS POINT
The base of Boiler Beach Road where it intersects Concession 12 or where it intersects Huronville Street (just south of Kincardine)

Facts:

  • Type of beach: Mostly sand, with gradual grade into the water
  • Length: 1.9 km
  • Parking: No charge to park at the small clearings along Boiler Beach Road with access by walkways to the beach. Follow Goderich Street to Boiler Beach Road.
  • Washrooms: Porta-potty on Site

Bruce Beach

Bruce Beach can be reached from Huron Concession Road 10 by taking the Bruce Beach Road. The small rocks along the beach only add to the character of this quiet, sandy shore. Large rocks mark the way into the water; again, the lake bottom slopes slowly out. A suitable beach for small ones, but, take note...there are no washrooms.

Facts

  • Type of Beach: Sandy with small rocks
  • Length: 2 km (approx.)
  • Parking: Minimal, at base of Concession 10 or at Concession 6 (which is a small clearing at the side of the road with a walking access to the beach)
  • Public Washrooms: None

Lurgan Beach

Take Bell Rd. off of Lakerange Drive to reach this quiet, sandy beach. A few rocks sit on the shore, with a scattering of pebbles and rocks at the waters entrance. A shallow shoreline and gradual slope into the water makes Lurgan Beach suitable for children. It does not, however, have washroom facilities. It is popular with local cottage owners.

Facts

  • Type of beach: Sandy, with few rocks on shore
  • Length: 1.5 km.
  • Parking: Limited, along the side of the road.
  • Public Washrooms: No

Point Clark Beach

Point Clark Beach has ample parking adjacent to the historic lighthouse, which stands guard over a tranquil sandy beach as well as the sometimes turbulent waters of Lake Huron. The playground, picnic area, washroom facilities and small harbour make it an attractive daytrip destination.  Ice cream is available at Lighthouse Gifts and Variety, which is just a short walk from the beach and if you are really hungry, Lake Range Family Restaurant is a great place to grab some fish and chips.

Access Point
The end of Lighthouse Road off of Huron Road in Point Clark.
