Rockwood Conservation Area, Rockwood
(4.1/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Rockwood Conservation Area a centerpiece of your Rockwood vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Rockwood vacation planner.

  • Most reviews are correct however this is the most expensive government run camp ground I have been in. The wood they sell is $8.00 a bag again more than I have paid anywhere and it is dried slabs that you can burn I two hours. What is camping without a camp fire. So now you are up to more than $60.00 a night and Ho yea you must pay to use the showers that you can not control. Mine was so hot you could not use it and make sure you leave you foot ware near the door as water is everywhere. Washrooms in general are a 3 on a scale of 10. Not many sites have a lot of privacy. The beach is only nice, the water has gobs of agile floating on it. Tested safe but not great looking. The only reason it gets a 2 rating is the scenery. We will not be back.
  • A gem of a place. The scenery is beautiful and does not look like anything else around, with towering limestone cliffs. There's a really nice loop trail around the lake/reservoir, a beach and paddling opportunities.
  • My best friend and I spent most of our free time at Rockwood Park. I have to say that it was one my favourite places to visit this summer. The trails are well taken care of, the fishing was fun. Boating was my the greatest part. We camped over nights twice as well. Overall a great time!
  • Had a wonderful full time with my family for the day. Very scenic, just spectacular. Rent a boat and paddle around the lake. Hiked also....worth the drive đź–’
  • It's. Lose yet feels secluded, but if you want high traffic activity it's there too. Lots to do, great for big parties and small groups too, or just go with a friend and hike, kayak, explore ruins, have a barbecue, camp, and go home happy!
