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.

Great place for camping! The beach is great but smaller size. Sites in general are nice and wooded, relatively private. Bathroom is clean, showers are not great, horrible water pressure and spray, especially considering you have to pay for it

Park Rangers are ridiculously aggressive and heavy handed. We were listening to a jays game on low on a tiny radio and were commanded to turn it off at 11 oclock. These guys came back to our site regularly after that all weekend trying to find a reason to evict us. Would not go again

An otherwise lovely family reunion, tarnished by a "something to prove" park ranger. We stayed the weekend at Rockwood for a family reunion. We are not rowdy teenagers, we are most of us families in our fourties with children. At 11:00pm we were asked to extinguish our fire and turn off our radio. We complied of course no problem. One...

We came here for a quick trip to a beach instead of the longer drive to Wasaga. What a pleasant surprise! The beach was well groomed, the staff kind and the water clear. This is our new go to spot for day trips. Should you get tired of the beach the trails, caves and ruins are a great way to... More

We love the old mill , great to hike and explore and you can now go all the way around on the trails. You can fish and release which is always fun. Great place to explore for a day trip picnic , we love to camp here, clean quiet.
