Island Lake Conservation Area

With four seasons of activities, Island Lake is the perfect destination for the active individual. The beautiful scenery of the surrounding area is captivating as you walk, bike, hike, or jog on the trails running beside the 182 hectare reservoir. The natural landscape and diverse wildlife in the area are sure to make you forget that you’re just steps from the urban centre of Dufferin County. In the summer enjoy fishing, boating, canoeing, kayaking, paddle-boarding, picnicking, and trail walks.
