The Grand River Conservation Authority operates the oldest and one of the largest networks or conservation areas in the province. There are 11 parks, often called "active conservation areas," offering a wide range of activities, including camping, hiking, paddling, swimming, fishing, picnicking, and winter activities such as skiing and snowshoeing.
Nestled in a bend of the Grand River amid the historic communities of Brantford and Brant County, and just a few minutes away from the First Nations territories of the Six Nations and Mississaugas of the New Credit, it makes a great home base for campers who want to explore this historic part of Ontario. It is also popular for anglers, hikers, bikers and canoeists.
