Great park! Three longhouse and a long palisade plus a gift shop and numerous short trails. One long trail goes to turkey pt. Wear decent shoes but trails are mostly easy. Like boardwalks? Do the Crawford lake trail. Like look outs? Do the escarpment trail. Do them all, they're short!

There's a small gift shop there was some snacks and souvenirs and different things and if you showcases of different artifacts and exhibits.... More

Crawford Lake is a great place to visit with the family. It has a fantastic boardwalk that surrounds Crawford lake, as well as a replica indian village, which helps kids learn how the local tribes lived long ago. Highly recommended!

We live close by but never tire of walking around Crawford Lake. There are other beautiful, marked hikes there as well. The Indian longhouses (which are being renovated) are always interesting. It is a go to place when we have visitors from the UK.

Visited the summer of 2014. Crawford Lake has a trail to hike around. There is also the longhouses to visit and explore. A great day trip outside Toronto.

Crawford Lake is a gem, about an hour from Toronto. There is a reconstructed Iroquois village near the parking lot and the visitors center. From the visitors center a short trek leads you to the lake itself. The boardwalk around the lake takes you all around it, but you can see the lake itself for only part of the way,... More

Wonderful Parks Canada discovery - within easy reach of Toronto ( about 90 mins drive on the highway)- makes for a great one day getaway with friends or family. The Visitor Centre has a small auditorium running informative footage about the Iroquois village reconstructed from archeological finds recovered from the lake ( you will learn what a Meromictic lake is...

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...
