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.

We were so disappointed with our stay here. Our site was right beside the highway which was ridiculously loud! The staff was extremely condescending to our family from the time we arrived to the time we left. The evening of our arrival the staff came to our site to complain about our talking being too loud. We were asked shortly... More

The superintendent of this conservation area David Townsend is the biggest problem with the reason why this park is failing so miserably. He is on some kind of power trip with the people who stay over night in this park. DO NOT give him the opportunity to subject you to this unreasonable person who should not be in a position... More

This is a great place to take kids they had a lot of fun exploring! The lake and river are lined with limestone walls, caves and potholes. We had lots of fun. The only things I didn't like were how open the sites are and the fire pits are near the roadways. We are booked again for labour day.

This was our first time out camping and it was great. The park and the sites closer to the river are just beautiful. You wake up to the birds singing and the sound of water. Bathrooms were good and to my surprise had toilet paper and soap. Lot's of paths to walk and beautiful views. Park is located near the... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed two nights at Rockwood. The first night 2 of our neighbors were kicked out and we had headlights shining directly into our tent till 3am. The second night we went to the beach at 11pm to take a couple night shots (my boyfriend is a photographer) and security creeped up on us, dressed in... More

Overall a beautiful park. A bit on the small side. The trails are beautiful with trilliums in full bloom. The campgrounds appear to be well maintained. Stayed in the Maple area which has full hookup. This appears to be a newer area. The trees are not mature and there is no privacy between sites. However for early may I had... More
