    So not impressed with @FanshaweCA Fanshawe Conservation. Not only is this camp ground directly next to an international airport with huge jets and planes flying directly over ALL day and night (it's p...  more »

    If you are visiting this park, it is a must to bring a bike, or at least attempt to hike the loop around the lake. It is really nice and well maintained.  more »

    20 km of lakeside side trail, so says the brochure. Reality. Go off trail you can pull 30km. Enter trail way via Thorndale. There you will see grassy meadows, wildlife, and small grove of evergreens. ...  more »

    This place is alright. The staff are great but I found the campgrounds too close together. As seen in the pictures, the camp sites are right beside/behind each other with little or no brush in between. The picnic tables are pretty run down. The site itself was decently maintained although we found empty liquor bottles in the brush beside our site. Campgrounds are also directly under a flight path. The campgrounds were pretty busy but the paths, playgrounds and other activities were not.

    Wonderful space and setting! The trails are beautiful, wildlife plentiful and the river is the cleanest I've seen the Thames. Would have 5 stars but there are no drinking water facilities anywhere at all. Bring your own water, and water bottle. Friends got sick drinking from the river out of desperation.

    Camped here for weekend. Facilities are clean, and mostly modern. Sites are marked and easy to find. Security patrols every once in a while, sometimes with firewood for sale. Friendly people.

    This is a great place to spend a day with your family whether you want to go fishing, hiking, biking, or even just for a picnic.... also a great place to camp, or to launch a boat or canoe and go for a leisurely ride

    Been a fanshawe visitor for 25 years now. If they treated there employees the same way they treat conservation gowers they would be working out of tents and driving 30 year old broken down trucks. But instead they work in a top notch facility and the most expensive vehicles they can purchase and we are stuck using dirty Porta potties and 70 year old dock ramps that have been depleted .cost go up every year and the quality of fanshawe as a visitor has gone down every year. Bring it back to 1970 when fanshawe held events with 100 000 ppl .... fanshawe now a days is nothing like what it used to be.

Where to stay in London

To make the most of sightseeing in London, it's best to stay in the center, as close as possible to the confluence of the city's two rivers. You'll be just a stone's throw from the city's best parks, as well as good entertainment. If you're just passing through and looking for budget accommodations while in transit, look east along Dundas Street--as you approach the airport, you'll find a host of affordable roadside motels. For a more suburban feel--and proximity to the city's biggest mall--head south to White Oaks, where you'll find a cluster of accommodations.
