Reserve a campsite online starting March 1st

Peterborough, Ontario (February 19, 2021) Again this year, campers will be able to book their campsites online for Otonabee Conservation’s two campgrounds, Warsaw Caves Conservation Area (CA) and Beavermead Campground.

The online reservation system will go live on, Monday, March 1, at 10:00 a.m. Campers are encouraged to reserve their campsite through the Let’s Camp online reservation platform. Those wishing to book a site at Warsaw Caves Conservation Area can visit and at Beavermead Campground can visit

The reservation system allows campers to view a map of the campground, select a site, and then book, pay for, and schedule their stay in an efficient, user-friendly, and convenient way. Campers are asked to utilize our online reservation system to book their sites ahead of their trip, to minimize face-to-face contact at the gatehouse upon arrival, and to ensure a campsite is available for them.

Camping and visiting the outdoors continues to be a safe and healthy activity during the COVID-19 pandemic. To keep campers and staff safe during the pandemic, Otonabee Conservation is working closely with Peterborough Public Health to take all necessary precautions including regular sanitizing, the use of face coverings, COVID-19 screening, and following all provincial restrictions. Some amenities will not be available during the pandemic including showers. The caves and The Caves Trail are also closed at Warsaw Caves CA, due to the inability for spelunkers to distance in the caves.

“Again this year, camping will be a little different, but continues to be a healthy activity during the pandemic,” Explains Jessie James, Otonabee Conservation’s Manager of Conservation Lands, “Camping is a safe summer staycation option that is close to home for those living in the Peterborough Region. We hope that families will choose to camp with us and enjoy hiking, swimming, fishing, and all the beauty that our watershed has to offer.”

Campers are encouraged to visit to plan their outdoor adventure in the Kawartha’s and learn more about the Conservation Areas within the Otonabee Region Watershed that provide a diverse range of outdoor activities for all ages.
