Rockwood Conservation Area, Rockwood

4.2
#33 of 244 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.

    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.

    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.
