[ view photo album ]
Durham Conservation Area is nestled along a picturesque stretch of the winding Saugeen River. It covers over 61 ha (150 acres) including over 3 kms (2 miles) of Saugeen River frontage within the Town of Durham. Scenic McGowan Falls is one of the highlights of this beautiful park.
A wide variety of activities can be enjoyed by both campers and day-users (see map). The Durham Conservation Area hosts one of three campgrounds operated by Saugeen Conservation.
Facilities include picnic shelters, modern shower and washroom facilities as well as a trailer dumping/recycling station. Firewood is also for sale on-site.
Directions: From the 401
Take Highway 6 north, through Guelph, Arthur, Mount Forest and then Durham. Follow the signs.
To all campers within Saugeen parks: Please be aware that campers are not allowed to bring their own firewood into the parks, due to the potential threat of insect infestations.
Our sincere thanks for your cooperation.
