Conestogo Lake Conservation Area is in the heart of Mennonite Country south of Drayton, home of the Drayton Festival Theatre. The Conestogo Dam was built in 1958 to provide flood control and water supply to downstream communities.
Conestogo Lake Conservation Area occupies over 2,300 hectares (5,750 acres) that has many uses. A swimming beach, picnic area and hiking trails are available at the park. Snowmobilers enjoy riding the OFSC trails that wind throughout the Conestogo Lake property.
Conestogo Lake offers opportunities to catch trophy smallmouth bass, pike and perch. Brown trout are stocked in the Conestogo River below the Conestogo Dam. Conestogo Lake offers hunting on 930 hectares of its land. About 1,600 ring-neck pheasants are released over a two-month fall season. A seasonal hunting permit is required. Directions: 16 km northwest of Elmira, 10 km south of Drayton.
