  • Recently visited Crawford Lake Conservation Area and combined some of the trails to get in a good 5 hours of hiking or so. We did the Nassagaweya trail to Rattlesnake point and back. When we arrived a...  read more »
  • Great history, artifacts, Indian village replica, lake and boardwalk for a beautiful walk. Lots of picnic tables for an alfresco meal. 
  • That place is majestic, ela splendor of that Lake and trails makes it unique. And it more interesting is to see and know more to the ancestors of that country. I applaud Canadians for how care for its roots. It is not the same to see it in a museum come to great huts of the iroquois, touch and get their clothes from rustic skins of wolves. You must go and get in touch with the nature of that place. Do a little hiking around the Lake.

  • It is not like any park, you would be amazed so as any kid going their with the heritage presented there about the Natives of Canada. BYO bbq is allowed , just call first for exact details on the "can" and "can not". Staff is very friendly.
  • Historic, touristic, great little lake and possible hike to rattle snake point and back, thru a great park! Approx 2 house - one way!
  • Beautiful scenic lake with blue/green water, we took the family trail and it was easy to go through with a stroller. The iroquois village was interesting. The kids were well entertained. The washroom facilities are not good.
  • Great place to get back to nature and get in touch with some aboriginal culture. Maintenance crews need to step up their game though, lots of walking hazards on wood bridge trails. The interpreter staff are wonderful though.
  • Great historic site, the new longhouse has a nice informative display. Lovely hike around the lake at anytime of year.
