Planning a camping trip to Fanshawe Conservation Area? 
We recommend you reserve a campsite in advance to avoid disappointment.  The campground is usually busy on weekends from late June to early September, and full on most holiday weekends.
The UTRCA is not opening the swimming pools this season at Fanshawe, Pittock or Wildwood Conservation Areas. The safety of our visitors and staff is paramount and we are unable to maintain our pools according to the requirements of the local health units and legislative restrictions during COVID-19.
