Located just north of the pretty, historic city of St Thomas, Dalewood Conservation Area is a campground for travelling campers and also for those who wish to park for the season.

There are excellent trails around the lake which are enjoyed year-round by those who enjoy Hiking and it is also a great place for watching many of the pretty area birds.

Fishing is allowed on the lake, either from the shore or from your canoe - but don't forget to purchase your Fishing Permit!

Located within easy reach of grocery stores and restaurants, the Conservation Area is fairly quiet, and it is great for young families.
