Rented a kayak for 2 hrs, paddling around this beautiful lake. Migrating geese in the water and trees just starting to turn. Magical!

Lock coolers in your car or trailer at night!

Thieves FREQUENTLY steal coolers during the night from campsites and remove ALL alcoholic beverages then dump the cooler and the remaining contents beside the road a couple of campsites away.

The good news is a grocery store with a LCBO is just around the corner 😊

Went for a day trip to do some hiking. The trails were well marked and clean. Not crowded and quiet! It was a great day away and in nature.
The views overlooking the lake are beautiful. The old ruins are neat to see. Unfortunately there's a fence around them so you aren't able to get too close.

Went there to take a hike with my nephew. Nice long trail, mostly flat and good for those knees. Some areas offer a shade from the 30C heat, and bring water to hydrate.
The swimming area is small, but if you have your canoe or paddle boards, bring them with you! Wide area to move around and explore...
Nice area for a family picnic as well, benches arranged to be distanced between other people.

This park is very beautiful, the trails are so exciting for hiking, the lake is great for kayaking, good for fishing and bird seeing.. The mills ruins are beautiful, the caves around the lake and in the trails and the hills, it is just amazing, we have been there several times this summer. Great Place.

My husband and I came here for a day of kayaking and hiking. I saw that some people were complaining that they couldn’t get in but we came right when they opened and had no issues. First we went kayaking and it was really beautiful. I definitely would go again. Next before we left we hiked the trails. They were also really nice and well kept. My only negative about the park was the garbage. Obviously I can’t blame the park for this because obviously humans know better than to throw their garbage everywhere. Just really makes me sad to see this at a place so beautiful. Regardless, I would definitely recommend going.

Nice place, very friendly staff and clean. Nice for canoe or kayak. The trails are nice and well marked. A note on the beach, it is quite nice, however be weary of bacteria ( they have warning signs describing when and how levels can rise). It is a conservation park and there are quite a few geese on the beach, as such, be weary of goose poop, of which there is quite a bit. This would mostly for folks with small children. Overall, nice beach, trails, and a very nice campsite.

Coming from Sarnia, this was an hour and a half drive but well worth it. A group of 4 of us who love hiking, walking and fall weather just loved Rockwood. The trail was lovely. There was so much to see, unique waterways, rock formations, great areas for picnics. I am definitely coming back in the summer to do some kayaking for a day.
The water looked like it would be nice and calm and lots of interesting crooks and crannies amongst the tall rock formations. Beautiful day.

Living in Guelph, this is a very convenient scenic outing for us. The lakeside trail is always a relaxing spot for a fall walk.

Ontario's best kept secret! My teenage children enjoyed the deep dark forest like atmosphere in the trails. The caves were just as breathtaking.
