Campgrounds Open May 10th

Another sure sign of spring happens on Friday, May 10th when Otonabee Conservation swings open the gates for the 2019 camping and recreational season at the Warsaw Caves Conservation Area and Beavermead Campground.

The two campgrounds offer a family-friendly camping experience in very different settings. The Warsaw Caves campground is nestled in the Indian River valley and Beavermead Campground is situated in the heart of the city of Peterborough. Campers and visitors may also enjoy other recreational activities such as hiking, swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking and spelunking (Warsaw Caves) while visiting the campgrounds and surrounding area.

In 2019, families will enjoy new events and activities – in celebration of Otonabee Conservation’s 60th Anniversary – with “Step into Nature ~ Watershed Explorations” including the new Watershed Map App, Photo Contest, 60 Fun Things to Do Guide and Discovery Days.  Details of the events and activities, as well as the Map App, can be found here.

Otonabee Conservation owns and operates the Warsaw Caves Conservation Area, which first opened its gates to the public in 1964. Beavermead Campground is owned by the City of Peterborough and has been operated by Otonabee Conservation since 2013. Campsite reservation requests can be made online for both campgrounds on Otonabee Conservation’s website.
