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.

This year I organized our family reunion at this park. Having been there several times, I was sure it would be a success. Unfortunately I was sadly mistaken. We had approx. 75 campers and an additional 30 people join for the day. The first evening the campers all gathered together to catch up and sit by the fire with the... More

Our boys loved this daytrip -- short hike through a really beautiful forest, saw turtles, the ruins were a cool photo op and the boys loved exploring around them, and the caves were cool too. Didn't catch any fish, but still fun to try, and the small beach was certainly crowded on a 30 degrees Saturday, but it didn't stop... More

Well laid out park with lots of activities for the trail walker and out door enthusiast. The camping sites could use a little more privacy (shrubs or bushes between sites) but were of a very decent size. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The washrooms were not the cleanest but not disgusting either. Staff (male) should have placed warning... More

My husband and I booked this sit about a month in advance, online when we were trying to find a spot near Guelph where we would be visiting friends. We wanted a full service spot that was not necessarily located in a bit resort-type RV campground. While the online booking was a bit annoying to use (had to create a... More

I had to choose where to go for a day of swimming so I chose here. The lake was awesome and the rock faces are a spectacular sight! The caves were wonderful as well as the ruins! I plan to go here more often! Excellent!

Great park with lots of activities. Excellent nature trails, kayaking, canoeing and paddle boating. There is a nice beach as well. We did not try fishing, but that is something else that you can do there.

Rockwood is a lovely park. We enjoyed our hourly canoe rental. Just enough time to paddle easily around the 'lake', checking out the rock walls and the beautiful cedar trees along the shore. Swallows nesting in the rocks are fun to watch. We didn't see turtles this visit as we had a couple of years ago, and we were again... More

We are repeat visitors to this conservation area. We tented for 2 years, pop up trailered for another 2 years and we have just entered 2 years of visits with our hybrid trailer. I look forward to walking the hiking trails. Sometimes the thrill is a vast sea of trilliums in the spring, the Canada Geese that birth and raise... More

Rented 2 canoes one evening in June. First time in a canoe. What great fun that was. Helpful staff and life jackets and away we went. No big challenge but a great place for a taster and nice like and surroundings. Now for the next extended canoe trip and tougher challenge.
