Went there for a day, they have a nice park and a nice Beach. Lots of camping spots too. What it lacks is shaded areas. So if you go, pack sunscreen and an umbrella. It gets really hot too.

Great place to take the family for the day or some camping. The park is so nice and very scenic , lots of places to go and see and hike or just stroll, can be in places where there are lots of people or you can find a nice secluded spots as well.

Spent a Monday just hiking and cooking over a hot grill out in the fresh air. Nothing better then enjoying the simple pleasures in life outside under Gods canopy.

I was looking for a place to stop and eat my lunch and I remember that the Rockwood Conservation Area was around the corner. It's been a long time since I've been here but it's just as I remember it.

Everything about Rockwood Conservation Park was wonderful. The staff was professional, courteous, and accommodating. The park was clean and beautiful. We were here visiting friends who live in Rockwood. We visited in a towable camper. I am looking forward to a return visit! Thank you!

We went to Rockwood Conservation Area this past weekend. The scenery is beautiful. Great place for hiking or pleasure walk. Camping is enjoyable albeit the showers have room to improve. Beach is small, muddy but still quite suitable for sand castles building, swimming, sun bathing and play. Picnicking was loads of fun by the beach as the higher areas have... More

We arrived there late on Sunday so couldn't rent a boat. We just walked around the trails. It was amazing. There are some beautiful viewpoints along the trails.

I' have visited this conservation area over the last 40 years and it still enjoy taking my grand children for a walk. This summer it the place to go and cool off and relax especially during the week.
