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

This is just a great place to visit and go for a long walk. The lake is pristine and you can learn about the Indians .. typically they have some sort of special event going on so every visit is a new learning experience.

Very Educational if you have a guided tour. So much native history. Beautiful area. Excellent trip for schools. Pathways are well maintained. Close to the 401 and Highway 6. Was there last fall and the colours were spectacular.

Crawford Lake is an unusual geological oddity. Only one of several such deep narrow lakes in the world that is so deep and still that oxygen does not penetrate to the bottom. The water is clear and pure and the sediments are in disturbed allowing for them to be measured and examined for the archeological history. Much of the area... More

What a marvellous place to visit. Lots of car parking space, some in the shade. We walked around the lake and missed the family of snapping turtles by about 15 minutes! Lots of viewing spots and is accessible for even to most unfit walkers. The views over the lake are stunning. Not too many other visitors about so it was... More
