Chippewa Creek Conservation Area
By Niagra Peninsula Conservation Authority

Chippawa Creek is a splendid example of conservation in action. The NPCA’s resource management practices have established an ideal wildlife habitat that offers rare public access to the Welland River. Naturalists can hike on the south side of Chippawa Creek where they will find excellent wildlife viewing opportunities.

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 stocked with bass and is a favourite area amongst anglers who can enjoy this popular sport at the annual Bass Derby.

In addition to offering 156 campsites, the vast open areas can be used year round. Popular summer activities include flying kites, impromptu field games and group picnics.

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 reservation.
