Ferris Provincial Park
By Ontario Parks

Situated on hilly drumlins, this park borders and provides access to the busy Trent River south of Campbellford. Scenic bluffs carved out of limestone bedrock provide a view of picturesque Ranney Falls. Overgrown stone fences and cleared meadows are relics of farms once worked here.
