Depot Lakes Conservation Area is nestled in the heart of the Land o’ Lakes tourist region, just north of the village of Verona. This Conservation Area is 1,214 hectares (3,000 acres) in size. Second, Third and Fourth Depot Lakes make up this Conservation Area, and offer some of the best fishing in eastern Ontario. This is our only Conservation Area that offers camping. There are 20 interior sites, thoughtfully sprinkled along the shoreline as well as on a few of the tiny islands of Second Depot Lake. Access to the campsites is by canoe. All campsites have picnic tables, fire pits and outdoor privies. Day use activities include hiking and paddling. There are approximately 9 km of hiking trails over rugged terrain.
