We went there for a picnic on a beautiful late June Saturday, arrived early so we beat the crowds and found a place under a tree. An hour later the whole place was packed, you literally had to watch your step not to step on anyone's toes or belongings. It was that crowded. The scenery is beautiful and the walking... More

Our camping experience at Rockwood Park is filled with mixed feelings. Although it is a beautiful park that offer a great beach, picnic area, trails, playground and ample camping sites, I am very disappointed with the overnight thefts that continues to be a HUGE issue at night once all campers are snuggled into their trailers for the night (not sure...

We went to Rockwood conservation area for our family's first camping trip. We had a great time. This place is pretty close to Toronto and was easily accessible for a one night trip. While it is very close to civilization the camping area and conservation park feels woodsy. The spot we had was clean and well maintained. The camp site... More

We travelled as a group of eleven so this was a great place for us to spend the whole Sunday. We had a picnic by the beach and spent the day swimming and rowing around the big lake on the dinghy that one of our group had brought with him. There are boats to hire so you do not have... More

We had our inaugural tent trailer camping trip the second weekend in May. We chose Rockwood because it was about an hour from home and very close to things to do and shopping if we had bad weather or needed supplies. We had great weather and enjoyed the mill ruins, caves, playground and the very beautiful Pothole trail with our... More

What a beautiful spot, right in our backyard. The views are spectacular. We have only visited in the winter, but I love the icicle laden caves and incredible scenery. Such a great way to spend an afternoon outdoors.

Great walking trails, great swimming area. Tons to do or nothing to do you deside. Bring your tent and camping gear and spend the weekend in Rockwoods best kept secret.

I have camped at numerous GRCA campgrounds before and this was a disappointment. First I will state that the campground itself is beautiful! Grounds are well kept, river, scenery is beautiful. The mill ruins were cool, my son loved that. What was disappointing was the campsite (area). I stayed in the Cedar Valley campsite area. This part of the grounds... More

Good sized sites. lots to see and do - probably the most interesting trails I've walked on a conservation area in southern ontario....caves, ruins, water, lots of ferns and other foliage. simply beautiful. the swimming is good and the canoe trip was great. will certainly be back

Lots of fun things to do in the day for our family: the canoeing is particularly great, the beach can be fun (although the bacteria warnings at the front gate are never comforting), and the hiking is perfect for little ones. Having said that, you'd have just as good a chance sleeping well by pitching your tent on the shoulder... More
