Why should I visit?

Each season brings something new along the nature trails at Parkhill Conservation Area.

The 800-hectare conservation area is the result of efforts to control serious flooding and soil erosion problems downstream.

The Parkhill Dam and reservoir were constructed in 1969 to create a storage area to regulate the water flow of Parkhill Creek.

The recreational opportunities include canoeing, windsurfing, fishing, hiking, snowmobiling and toboganning. Within the conservation area is a campground facility known as the Great Canadian Hideaway.

Call them at 519-294-6333 for camping information or reservations.

A rest area for travellers, known as the Scenic Lookout, is located on Cty Rd # 81, just north of Parkhill.
