Another sure sign of spring happens on Friday, May 11 when Otonabee Conservation swings open the gates for the 2018 camping and recreational season at the Warsaw Caves Conservation Area and Campground 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 2018, families will enjoy an ever-increasing number of nature events — part of the popular Discovery Days program— which are included with admission or with a Season Pass. These include wildlife species demonstrations (birds of prey, snakes and turtles), fishing workshops, paddling tours and yoga in the park.
Otonabee Conservation owns and operates the Warsaw Caves Conservation Area and Campground, 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.
