My family and I have been here many times and we all enjoy the hiking trail and the village. The village is very informative especially in the spring for the sugar water/maple syrup demonstrations. It really is a hidden gem at a very affordable cost. Great place to spend an afternoon.

The Iroquois Village was informative with the long houses, beautiful artifacts, the campfire set up and the interactive theatre. The walk to the the Lake was made very interesting with large carved statues of the wolf, owl etc. The waters on the beautiful Lake were very clear and the boardwalk was absolutely pleasant as we circled the lake enchanted by...

The Lake is located conveniently outside Toronto, off HW401 and it's a peaceful place for a family getaway, with plenty of hiking trails and beautiful scenery. The color marks on hiking trails can be confusing though. Pick a map from the information center if you are going to hike. I wish the map was in color, and was more precise,... More

My wife, my puppy, and I love going to Crawford. It has a wonderful boardwalk that surrounds the lake, and trails that provide you with a wonderful sense of peace and relaxation. Weekends can be busy, but weekdays are quiet and often my puppy and I are the only two in the park. There is a reconstruction of an Iroquois... More

Crawford Lake is one of those hidden gems! Having grown up in the area, I knew it before it was developed into a very informative conservation park, and for that reason I didn't give it an excellent. I found it far more atractive in it's semi natural state. The Crawfords and the Mahon's did have a summer home on the... More

We visited the conservation during the Indian Summer, and it was beautiful. The indian village, the tales, the heritage, the nature. https://www.flickr.com/photos/igalsc/sets/72157625028272779/

A group of friends gathered on a snowy evening to participate in a Moonlight Snowshoe. It was very enjoyable being outdoors. Snowshoeing is more challenging than you might imagine. The guided snowshoe is approximately 2 km in length up and down hills and certainly appropriate for families. What I would suggest is a disclaimer when you sign up that it... More

If you would like to watch some owls, check out local wildlife, have a BBQ lunch, see an native Canadian settlement or do some easy hiking around a sedentary lake, then this is the place for you. There is something for people of all ages here. The walking and hiking trails are well marked, and the majority are wooden boardwalks... More

When visiting we got the chance to listen to the history of the native Iroquois Indians and the presence of their village because there was a school trip with a guided tour that was taking place at the same time. There aren't enough signs to explain the entire history in text, so it's always great listening to it from someone... More

I am just home from a great walk through the Crawford Lake Conservation Area. We spent an hour ambling around the lake itself. It is surrounded by a beautiful, very easy-to-do boardwalk. At several points, the walkway opens up to decks overlooking the lake. Much of the time, the walkway does not keep the walkway in close view, but the... More
