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 "Great Canadian Hideaway".
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.
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. Information provided by the Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority website.
