I grew up just by here, this place was a common destination. Lots of cliffs to jump off, as well as swimming under the waterfall is just wonderful

I went for a 5-hour school trip in here, and loved it. During my trip, I explored a few caves and canoed with a colleague. The staff were friendly and encouraging, and the place was beautiful, but I do not recommend the caves. Basically, the caves are a bunch of small tunnels with very short ceilings, and the objective is... More

We stayed for 3 nights recently. The beach, canoeing, trails and caves are all great and our kids had a lot of fun. Another reviewer noted that the beach area gets busy and full quickly, which was our experience as well. The campground is just okay. The area we were in (Cedar Valley) is close to very busy and noisy... More

We went with our Scouting Unit for a weekend camping trip. It was a great weekend with alot to do for a relaxing weekend with friends and family. RC has canoeing, paddle boats, bike/walking trails, caves to explore, playground & small beach on site too. Group sites are small, but was good for us. Only "complaint" would be that its... More

Pros: Great for weekend (2 night stay max). Small lake but great for beginner canoeist. Takes about 2 - 3 hours to explore, and caves are good too. Cons: do not stay for long weekends. Place gets busy really fast. Park fills up with a lot of day trippers with bbq's and noise. Gets busier to move around park. Parking... More

"We stayed here recently as part of a group outing that we do every year, and unfortunately are unlikely to go back. Not because it was bad, just not what we were looking for. Although the park is quite large there are only a select number of things to do. The water was a little grimy although it is classified... More

We bring our canoe up here once or twice a year. Great place to go canoeing very scenic and lots of wildlife. Canoeing around the cliffs and rocks is a wonderful experience. Also went to see the caves that are in the park. Overall a good experience at Rockwood.

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
