  • My three highlights in this Conservation Area, were the lake and its beach. People could kayak and some were enjoying the sun on the beach. The second one was the dam. We couldn’t see in completely, b...  more »
  • I took my young son here to enjoy the sand and water. Unfortunately, the sand here is very very rocky and multiple people were bitten by leeches while swimming in the water.  more »
  • The main attraction of this place must be the many trails that one can explore on bike or on foot. To me this is a place to visit is early to late summer as it can be a wet and muddy experience otherw...  more »

  • Laurel creek is right in the middle of the city, but feels as if it is so far outside of it. Camp sites are typically spacious and quiet. Very spacious compared to most other conservation areas (pinehurst comes to mind) although there are far fewer camp sites (something like 60 in comparison to 200) laurel creek is where you want to be if you don't want the inconvenience of being "right on top" of the neighbouring campsite and the noise and hustle of a more popular park. Clean beaches (although the water is not monitored), friendly, inviting staff, and the quiet of a rural feeling camping experience are what keep me coming back year after year. The park has day camps as well as several activities throughout the month which makes laurel creek the perfect stop whether it be a day trip or a week long camping trip. I HIGHLY recommend!!
  • This is a nice spot to visit in the city, good for small children if you are looking for a few hours at a beach setting. There is no playground or concessions near the beach, bring a picnic. Canoes and kayaks can be rented. There are also camping sites available here.
  • Good. You can always find private spots. The dam shelter is awesome to host parties. The trail that goes around the west side of the park is decent for walking/running too. Who wouldn't like a little beach 5 minutes from their house.
  • Great little park very close to my home. I wouldn't swim here though.
  • plz visit Canada Federal's National Park instead of coming here...
