The pristine waters of Crawford Lake Conservation Area have drawn people to its shores for hundreds of years. The rare meromictic lake, with its surrounding boardwalk, is nestled in lush forests atop the stunning Niagara Escarpment.
Visitors can step back in time and explore the 15th century Iroquoian Village that has been reconstructed on its original site. The spirits still sing in the rustic longhouses where tools, animal hides and the smell of smoke let visitors experience the life and times of Ontario's First Peoples.
Crawford Lake offers a wide range of educational programs and tours for schools and organizations, as well as hiking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing activities.
