We camped here just one night and loved it. It's just outside of Guelph but looks and feels like Muskoka when you are in the water. Great easy hiking trails and nice canoeing with kids. It would be easy to spend a couple of nights here but it is a small park and activities are limited. Our campsite also wasn't... More

My best girlfriend and I did a 4-5 hour walk all around the trails, caves and cliffs and waterfalls of this beautiful conservation area over the weekend before hitting up the Rib Fest in the neighboring town of Guelph. We had a great day there, there are so many places to explore and we entered in to the main trail... More

I camped here for a weekend a couple of years ago with my son and two grandkids. The conservation authority offers a great website with photos of the camp sites you can book online. Beware though that the photos are taken with a wide angle lens and as a result make the sites look much larger than they really are,... More

The park is very scenic and perfect for canoeing, hiking, exploring, picnics and taking pictures. We spent several hours walking on the trails, exploring the caves and the mill ruins. There were lots of photo opportunities of the gorgeous cliffs, river and potholes. The trails are well groomed and the park was very clean. It is located at the intersection... More

We were surprised that there were very few people at the park. It was almost empty and all of the concessions were closed. There was a sign saying that there was no swimming because if bacteria. We visited the caves and walked along the two hiking trails. It was a pleasant day but it was not that scenic and the... More

We arrived on week day and no delay getting into the park. We first wanted to walk around the Harris Woolen Mill Ruins only to find out there was no parking there due to a film production on location. I thought this should have been mentioned when we paid to enter the park. We then went to the main beach... More

Nice beach - nice views - bathrooms facilities could have been better but worth a visit... Second time we have been and we didn't see much improvements to the facilities but, again we will for sure go back

It was a very beautiful and relaxing canoeing experience. he beach is pretty small and was packed by noon. The trails are nice and the... More

Rockwood is a great place to take your young ones on a sunny day. I take my 2 year old as often as we can. Great clean beach, never too busy. Ice cream sold near by for that after swim treat. Great way to spend the day.
