Sharon Creek Conservation Area

209.gif
Sharon Creek has 35.6 hectares of water and 12.9 hectares of forest, grassland, wooded ravines, a small wetland and a tallgrass prairie. The 2.8 hectare tallgrass prairie is the largest publicly accessible site in Middlesex County. Picnicking, birdwatching, hiking, fishing (bass, pike and walleye) and canoeing are enjoyed by many visitors. Conservation-oriented group camping is available by reservation only. Swimming in the reservoir is unsupervised. Springer Lake (the reservoir), was formed as a result of the installation of the Sharon Creek Dam. The Dam was built primarily to raise the ground-water levels and provide a municipal water supply for the region of Delaware. The dam and reservoir can also be used for flood control, but this is not the main purpose.
