Go extreme car camping in a real forest! Visit Sauble beach, Sauble Falls Provincial Park or go canoeing on one of two nearby lakes (Chesley and Gould Lakes), all within a 15 minute drive of the campsite.

We plan to visit Inglis Falls Conservation Area for some hiking. "One of three waterfalls that surround the City of Owen Sound, Inglis Falls is the best known and most visited. Situated in the heart of the 200-hectare Inglis Falls Conservation Area, Inglis Falls is an 18 metre high cascade, created by the Sydenham River meeting the edge of the Niagara Escarpment. The erosive power of the water has carved a deep gorge at the base of the falls. On a clear day you can see down the valley into the City of Owen Sound and out to the Owen Sound harbour.

There is something for everybody; a viewing platform for those unable to see over the stone wall, 7.42 km of trails of various difficulty, access to the Bruce Trail, more than 20 species of ferns, bird watching opportunities, a series of geological potholes, historical remains of a grist mill and water filtration plant, picnic facilities and Niagara Escapement Discovery Shop, displays, video and visitor information."

Be advised there are no washrooms/thunderboxes on the campsite. Bring a shovel.

Car pools and arrival times:We can show up any time on Friday. Car pool arrangements will be made with the help of the coordinator. In the case of waiting lists, a driver may replace a non-driver (or someone who chooses to meet at the site) if we have a lack of car space. Carpool drivers will make accommodations to pick up people and equipment at a convenient place and time.

Feel free to contact the coordinator if you have any questions or concerns.
