Top 5 Things To Do At Belwood Lake Conservation Area


Rockwell is just a short 20-minute drive from the amazing Belwood Lake conservation area. With plenty to do for people of all ages, this fantastic park has something for anyone who loves the outdoors. Open year round, you’re sure to head back time and again.


Belwood Lake is a great place to put a boat in the water not matter what kind. This 12km long reservoir is open to canoes, kayaks sailboats, and motorboats many of which are available to rent within the park. There are also boat launches if you want to hit the water with your own boat in tow.


If you’re looking for scenic views, the Elora Cataract Trailway is for you. At 47km long, this trail links Elora to the Forks of the Credit Provincial Park and can be picked up in Belwood Lake Park. With woods, and waters to trek, this trail is sure to please hikers of all skill levels.


There might not be a better place to drop a line than this park. With the reservoir, the Grand River, and a special area designated for kids, you’re likely to end up with something on your line. With tons of trout pike, walleye, smallmouth bass and perch to catch in the summer and winter, Belwood is definitely a fishing destination you’ll want to stop at.

Get together

If you’re looking for a scenic location for your next outdoor event, you can probably stop looking. While you can set up a picnic pretty much anywhere on the grounds, you might want to look into renting the Hampton Barn. This beautiful restored barn is the perfect setting for any event. With seating for 95 and a full kitchen, there’s no party this spot can’t host.


While you aren’t likely to find any wascally wabbits, there is plenty to hunt for those with permits. With approximately 240 hectares to be hunted, this is a fertile area for everything from deer, to turkey and waterfowl.
