My friends and I we're having a few beers at midnight after we got back from the Friday lineup before exhausted going to bed. Guard came by told us... More

Let's just say as a local meaning I live in Fergus I was absolutely disappointed in how we were treated by one certain ranger actually seemed like he had an authority complex but now it has ruined our once favorite campground....just very disappointed

Typically we go to Mono Cliffs or Rattlesnake for hikes, but decided to try something different. There are plenty of easy trails suitable for all ages with stairs along the way to walk down to the water. We meandered through the entire park and detoured under the bridge to walk around downtown Elora. There was a perfect rock in the... More

A great place for a day trip from GTA. We took a great hiking. There's even a little falls. You can take a tubing adventure during hot summer. As a part of admission, we visited Quarry Conservation Area which is really a beautiful gem.

This is a beautiful place to go for a hike. There are lookouts from the top if you don't have good enough footwear to go down into the gorge and explore, or take the path down and check out the water. The view is fantastic from the top or the bottom of the gorge. It's lovely in summer but beautiful... More

What a beautiful place to spend the afternoon. I had been here before in the summer and wanted to see it in winter. It is just as spectacular in the winter as it is in summer.
