Beautiful park in any season, lots of trails to walk on, stunning views of the lake. In summer, make sure to check out the Look Out, the icing on a cake of this park.

Visited the park on family day long weekend along with my husband. They were offering free entry on that day with some activities for the kids as well. As we entered, we noticed that the parking was almost full and parked in the first spot that we found available. We walked up to the Eramosa lake and was stunned to... More

It is well attended by locals and it offers many sites to explore the geology of the area. In the summer the water is warm and you can canoe or kayak up river for a good strech

We went on a weekday in November, 18 degrees and sunny, so a perfect day. There was virtually no one there. We found the area to be incredibly beautiful with amazing rock formations, caves and water areas. The trails were awesome to walk and we had a super time. Would recommend to anyone looking for a lovely outing with wonderful... More

My friend and I went canoeing along the river and we found a mini waterfall, near the dam. It's a beautiful place for a stroll, for camping, hiking and exploring. This would be a great place to go swimming in the summer. The leaves were falling around this time of the year, so I thought it would be nice to... More

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.

I was looking for new places to go kayaking and found Rockwood Conservation Area not far from home. Only 38km ride. Easy to find. We went late afternoon on a Friday, so not many people there. A lot of campers, but that was not our purpose. We parked by the old mill which was close to the water. We did... More

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.

Thank tayleefarm
