Valens Lake Conservation Area is an awesome camping destination year-round. With both lake-view and tree-covered campgrounds, you are sure to find the perfect spot for your next nature getaway. The park is home to over 10 km of trails and 300 m of boardwalk over the wetland habitat. These trails are stunning destinations for hiking and cycling in the warm months and cross country skiing in the winter. Stop along the way at the observation tower which looks out over the lake and surrounding forest. A covered pavilion and over 1,000 picnic tables and dot the region for a relaxing meal among the wildlife. Enjoy fishing? There is a popular fishing derby in July: The john Burns Memorial Fishing Derby. Valens Lake Conservation Area also hosts volleyball nets, a natural, sandy beach, and plenty of barbeques. Canoe, kayak, and rowboat rentals are available. Whatever your interest, there is something for everyone at Valens Lake!

Still an emerging beauty needing more care but one which I hope to visit by organizing a family reunion picnic very soon – my watermark, Hamilton Harbour.
