“A Beautiful Place”

Rockwood Conservation Area
Ranked #1 of 3 things to do in Rockwood
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 May 2009

Most conservation areas are pretty much the same. A lake, some trees, fishing, picnicking and some boats for rent. Rockwood has all that except it's not a lake there but a wide river.

You can see where the water changes from a creek to a vast, wide river and then back to a creek again. Perhaps this is why the water there is so clear and inviting, because the water is constantly moving and thus not retaining all the algae or whatever like a lake would.

Anyway, this is a gorgeous place, not only because of the water but because of the various cliffs and rock structures. And I think that's because Rockwood is part of the Niagara Escarpment. No wonder so many movies and shows are shot here.

And the fishing ain't bad either. I don't know if there are any trophies here but there's ample decent size fish like rainbows, carp, cat fish, sun fish, smallies and rock bass.
