I spent many weekends this past summer at Rockwood and absolutely loved it. The hiking trails are beginner trails but still very scenic. Perfect for young families who may not want to go too far with their little ones. I myself got bitten by the canoe-bug and started canoeing there on a weekly basis. The water is usually calm and...

The Rockwood Conservation is popular for movie filming but it is also a great spot to go for a walk. The mill is very pretty and the swimming area is perfect for families with small children.

Great for a day trip or camping, lovely areas to hike or sit and enjoy the water. Nice and close to stores if you run out of anything.

If you're looking for deep woods, hard core camping look elsewhere. This is, as other reviewers have noted, right on one of the busier provincial highways in the GTA, Highway 7. Aside from the walking trail (hiking is too intense a word for it) you never feel far from civilization. For a family of young kids, however, it's perfect. Avoid... More

The conservation area is close to my house and we go there very often. The beach is good, it can be a little crowded on the weekends, but there's always room on the grass to set out your blankets. The water is cool and sometimes there is quite a bit of algea, but it's refreshing. If you are a strong... More

This was our second visit to Rockwood and both visits were fantastic. The kids are fascinated by the ruins and the walk itself is not difficult at all. Bring your bike or stroller if you need to. I'm sure there are more challenging paths but with three kids and a dog we stuck to the main path. I would have... More

I visited the Conservation Area as part of the GHAGAFAP event and was impressed with the facilities. The whole area was well tended and the park was interesting to explore.

We come here every year to enjoy this beautiful conservation area. There are so many wonderful geological features in this park. The caves, potholes and soaring cliffs are all amazing. It also has the Devil's Well which is the world's biggest pothole. We've camped here and also just come for the day. Will definitely be back as there are always... More

We have been visiting this park on September 20, 2015. As the summer is over not many people around- which is great! The lake is not big -but full of rocks and cypress trees. I would not recommend to swim here- as it looks very dirty plus lots of geese and gulls in the area. But I would recommend kayaking... More
