  • Island Lake, named after one of the early owners, not the islands in it, is a dammed body of water at the head of the Credit and and Nottawasaga rivers. The trail around the lake is a pleasant walk, j...  more »
  • An all-season getaway - so close to Highway 10 - yet serene and seemingly someplace else! Kilometres of lovely trails for walking, running, snowshoeing or biking. Flat portions and wooden paths/bridge...  more »
  • Orangeville is very fortunate to have a trail system that was created by volunteers. It is an amazing, well groomed, scenic trail that circles Island Lake on the outskirts of Orangeville. It is an eas...  more »
  • Rented a canoe an hour before they closed for the night. Reasonable price. Canoe didn't sink! Caught a couple small fish. Mostly small mouth, sunfish and perch. Nice little piece of heaven just 2 minutes from home!
  • I love it. Went there for fishing and rented an aluminum boat, battery powered. Tons of decent sized sunfish/Pumpkinseed. Caught a decent sized Pike. And a huge crappie. Water is not tested though. Lots of weeds so try to rent a boat
  • This conservation area is the best around gta if you'll go fishing. The variance of fish you can catch is amazing from sunfish to catch fish to perch to bass. The experience is always amazing. Please make this area clean as you go and release back fish that you will not consume. Help preserve this area.
  • OK for a day out...Not good for fishing at all...we spent all day, nothing...many boaters there said the same thing...not many fishes there since last few years. May be early season you may get a few but then they deplete fast. Too much weed underwater and no way you can cast without messing your lures. We lost about $100 worth of lures between three of us, they get caught even if floating on the surface. Boat rental cost $60 half and $90 full day with trolling motor. Boat conditions are very poor. They should get sharp edges fixed especially where metal screws sticking out. Too much weed int he water will jam trolling motor as well so a big spoiler for us. Did some bird photography and air was fresh.
  • I have been a member for many years and I fish when I go there good fishing. I always catch & release the fish largest fish 30" pike through the ice .
