Who We Are

About Us

Our 3,000 acre conservation area was created when the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority (UTRCA) built Fanshawe Dam and Reservoir in 1950-52, to protect the City of London from flooding. Our "outdoor playground," perched on the edge of London, offers camping (both seasonal and overnight), boating, canoe and kayak rentals, hiking, picnicking, mountain biking, bird watching, fishing, special events, and so much more! 

Fanshawe CA is one of three large, multi-use conservation areas in the Upper Thames River watershed, the others being Wildwood CA and Pittock CA.
