Rockwood Conservation Area, Rockwood

4.2
#29 of 236 in Wildlife in Ontario
Dense coniferous forestry and limestone cliffs and caves provide a stunning natural landscape to hike throughout at Rockwood Conservation Area. The conservation area is full of natural wonders including glacial potholes--some of the biggest in the world--which can easily be seen from canoe or kayak on the lake's surface or from the well-paved hiking trails. Along the way you'll stumble across what remains of an old woolen mill, now a popular site for wedding photography. There are plenty of benches and barbeques here. Plan a trip to Rockwood easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • Great, although the beach was a bit over populated. Near the rock foundations there was a lady "photographer" who possess a couple hugging and kissing and then yelled, loudly, "yes! Yes! More love! Yea, that's great!" while taking pictures.... Awkward....
  • -easy to drive up to get house -Lucky pick #5 cause we just realized it's level grass -45 to 75 psi water -new hydro box -good spacing between sites -#5 doesn't have a tree no biggie -quiet as he'll -hardly any mosquitos -$50 a night -$8 for a bag of wood. The look of of wood will piss you off cause it looks like wood mill scrap. BUT surprisingly it burns clean, little smoke and lasts for hours -train passes close by from time to time -lots of pop up trailer owners. Very entertaining watching them setup -your gonna want your RV door pointing north east if you don't want to boil -move over to site #61 Which has unlimited sewer. Water pressure is higher 60 psi. NO Mosquitos. 70 foot plus lots.
  • Very scenic! Amazing views! Also great trails and hikes. Great area for canoeing and also fishing. Great place relax and unwind and a lot of activities to do.
  • Slept in Cedar area located right at intersection of highway, worst sleep ever! So loud and I could literally see the street lights change to green when trying to sleep in my tent. Great place for a day trip, horrible for camping.
  • Great park with plenty to see and do! Please note the Canada 150 pass is not valid here and entrance is 6.50 for adults.
