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...

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/
