Chippawa Creek Conservation Area & Campground
Come visit Chippawa Creek Conservation Area this summer! Chippawa Creek is a splendid example of conservation in action. The NPCA’s resource management practices have fostered an ideal wildlife habitat that offers rare public access to the Welland River. Recreationalists and naturalists alike will enjoy a variety of opportunities and activities that is uncommon in the southernmost part of Ontario.
Dils Lake, a 10 hectare man made reservoir, is the perfect spot for a variety of outdoor activities including non-motorized boating, swimming and fishing. Equipped with wheelchair-accessible fishing piers and trails, the lake is populated by a variety of fish species including large mouth bass, crappie and carp and is a favourite amongst area anglers, many of whom attend the annual Bass Derby held each July. Additional events hosted by the Campers’ Recreation Committee include Canada Day parade, Halloween Celebrations, and Christmas in July.
In addition to offering 156 campsites, the vast open areas can be used year round. Popular summer activities include hiking the 1.1 km trail around Dils Lake, group picnics, or just relaxing in the shade near the water. Please note, bookings open in April of every year.
A small boat launch and access to the Welland River entice explorers to check out one of Niagara’s main watercourses. A sheltered pavilion is available for public use or by reservation. Chippawa Creek Conservation Area is a dog-friendly park, but all four-legged friends must be on a leash.
Be sure to purchase the 2022 NaturePlus Pass for unlimited access to all conservation areas including the four flagship properties where admission rate applies. This is fantastic value for regular park visitors!
