Durham Conservation Area
By Saugeen Conservation

Durham Conservation Area is nestled along a picturesque stretch of the winding Saugeen River. It covers over 61 ha (150 acres) including over 3 kms (2 miles) of Saugeen River frontage within the Town of Durham. Scenic McGowan Falls is one of the highlights of this beautiful park.
A wide variety of activities can be enjoyed by both campers and day-users.
Facilities include picnic shelters, modern shower and washroom facilities as well as a trailer dumping/recycling station. Firewood is for sale on-site, as there is a ban on firewood being brought into the park.
Durham Conservation Area also hosts a number of special events throughout the camping season, including interpretive programs (depending on the availability of summer staff), corn roasts and jamborees. The park is also a popular destination for cyclists, anglers, swimmers and nature enthusasts.
Please note: Seasonal sites are available at Durham Conservation Area.
Directions: From the 401 take Highway 6 north, through Guelph, Arthur, Mount Forest and then Durham. Follow the signs.
To all campers within Saugeen parks: Please be aware that campers will no longer be permitted to bring their own firewood into the parks, due to the potential threat of insect infestations. Our sincere thanks for your cooperation.
