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 recreational opportunities include canoeing, windsurfing, fishing, hiking, snowmobiling and toboganning. Within the conservation area is a campground facility.

Call 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.

Driving Directions: For entrance to the boat launch take McGuffin Hills Drive off Cty Rd #81. For entrance to nature trails, take Centre Road off Cty Rd # 7.
