On the weekend the weather was abnormally warm and sunny so we were desperate to squeeze in one last paddle in our canoe before the winter weather started. We decided to try this conservation area as it had a fair-sized lake. Although the water level was very low we were able to enjoy a two-hour leisurely paddle. We saw large fish leaping in the air and several fishers trying to catch them. We also heard and saw a lot of Canada Geese: the water looked rather murky, and we thought it was probably loaded with geese droppings. It made us wonder what it would be like in the summer; I would certainly be hesitant to swim in it!

Do not come to this campground unless you are 18-25 and want to party. Terrible place to camp if you want a true camping experience. 8 people and 4 dogs on one site directly beside us. Up till 4:00am with loud talking and dogs barking and up again in the morning. Young people walking around with alcohol all hours of the night. Nothing seems to be off limits once Friday night comes to guelph lake. We talked to the girl at the gate and her words were...ya that happens sometimes...incredibly poor experience. We had to leave a day early just to get some sleep. Never ever camping there again.

Due to Covid little to no maintenance is being carried out at the Conservation Area beach so lots of Geese droppings on the beach and in the water which it it very unattractive for the summer. It is a swim at your own risk lake as no testing is performed for Ecoli by Governmental authorities.

Conservation authority doesn't really manage the noise or complaints/concerns. They had an alcohol/cannabis band in place yet drunk obnoxious people were being disrespectful until well into the morning hours (2 am) two nights in a row. Very Disappointing.

We had 3 sites in lower section with family and friends. Disrespectful campers behind us. Loud music, walking through our 3 sites to get to washroom and very loud after 11 Pm quiet time. We lodged complaints at office. They were spoken to but still continued to disobey rules. 5 more complaints were submitted by surrounding campsites. After 2 nights of no sleep, we decided not to stay for the third night. There were 6 tents on the sites and at least 40 people. Where are the rules? I feel after they had been spoken to for the third or forth time, they should have gotten the boot. The staff tried but clearly were not listened to. WE WILL NEVER CAMP THERE AGAIN. This was through the week in Aug. 2020
