    We stayed here 4 nights in the campground mid week in the summer. Compared to booking campgrounds in provincial parks, this place was a breeze. Piles of open serviced sites. That may be because there is a strict no drinking/cannabis policy that is readily enforced but it also keeps the rowdy crowd out.
    Campsites were super clean, washrooms a little tired but ok. Showers take 25 cents. Campfire wood was $8.50 for a good sized bag of nice dry wood. Staff all seem to be fairly friendly. A very good place to camp.
    We did the river tubing which was decent, no lines (mid week) although the lack of solenoid of a shuttle was taxing on small kids. Make sure you bring your reservation for tubes with you as mine didn’t make it to the system but I had emails to show I had paid.
    I have read here that the conservation tubes are old and maybe ret outside the park, but it appears they have all new tubes this year and they have nice back rests and water bottle holders. The tube run is 50 minutes; I read “2 hours” quite a bit here but that’s probably including the walk and launching time but you can run as many times as you want.
    All in all worth a stay.

    I have spent many hours using their excellent archives and library. Staff are always very helpful and friendly. The museum presents numerous special programmes during the year.

    The Elora gorge falls are not spectacular in any sense, but they help add to the charm of the town. They can be viewed from multiple places - like the elora mill, victoria park or the pedestrian walkway in downtown - all of them provide different views beautiful in their own way.
    Sunset from the pedestrian bridge would be my preferred spot.
    Worth a visit for sure.

    Went opening day. Nice to look at but not worth the price. Forest area and water was pretty. The lookout would have been good enough without the fee.

    Normally too crowded and too warm in the summer, the fall foliage makes the bike trip great in the fall, and certainly less boring. An easy trail, well maintained and easy to do with any bike. Limited attractions on the course

    I was fortunate enough to find out about an exhibit at the Elora Centre of the Arts while visiting last weekend. It was a fantastic space, with welcoming staff and the exhibit was really inspiring. A must see if you're in this little gem of a village!

    Do not go out of your way or expect to be overwhelmed. It is a nice little park with a walk enough to stretch a bit. If you like clambering through the bush you can get to the dam by the river.

    First time visit for the Friday night buffet at 9.99. Everyone is allowed in at 4.45 and rush for a table and immediately get a place in line for the buffet. That's the worst of it. A nice variety of salads and vegetables. Beef was excellent however the lobster tail is doled out one at a time and difficult to remove from the shell due to overcooking. If you are someone that enjoy lobster you have to continuously line up again . The beef and yorkshire and veggies are worth the trip.

    What a great mix of local art in a nice gallery setting and really pleasantly pleased with the prices. If you visited and didn’t take something with you you’re silly.

    It was relatively quiet when we visited and enjoyed a rest from all our driving. The park is well looked after and clean. Good for families and to have a picnic.

    Haven’t been here for a while but noticed that they have reduced their staff so you have to wait a long time to get paid out for a jackpot. When I asked at the front desk I got a brush off!

    The iconic Badley Bridge, also known as Metcalfe Street Bridge, is the main bridge between the north and south side of the Grand River in Elora. The Badley Bridge was built in the 1950’s by A.H. MacLellan and the Hamilton Bridge Company. It’s a beautiful bridge and part of Elora’s history. It a locally uncommon example of its type. It keeps the eye-catching beauty and design details of metal truss bridges.

    This store closed down September of 2015. They are instead creating an online store that is as of now not yet running. But if you go to their website you can redirect to Sweet Trash on Etsy.

    I recently took the ZipX experience and it was everything I hoped for and more. Frederick is a very patient and experienced teacher and took every precaution to make sure the day was safe and enjoyable. There were 3 wonderful and exciting activities that we took part in and each one was adrenaline pumping and fun. I would highly recommend this experience with One Axe Pursuits and would recommend it to all levels of fitness and experience. I am 67 years old and found this to be a fun and amazing experience.
