The Elora Gorge Park in Southern Ontario is one of the most beautiful natural campsites in the province and country. The conservation area features limestone cliffs on each side of the gorge that plummet 70 feet down into the Grand River below it.
At the Tooth of Time area you can witness the waterfall and spectacular view. The park is also home to numerous caves as well as a cascade waterfall which is known as Hole in the Rock.
The gorge is quite popular with hikers, campers, swimmers, divers and tubers, kayakers, picnickers, and campers. You can also learn how to fly-fish while camping.
There are several trails that lead through the fantastic limestone walls down to the river.
The swimming hole in the Elora Quarry allows you to swim between the rock walls and is a great place to cool off and have fun.
The local area has many excellent places to stay, such as small inns and bed and breakfasts, but if you’d like to enjoy the outdoors, the park offers some wonderful campsites where you can sleep under the stars and enjoy the natural surroundings.
The Elora Gorge Park and conservation area is within driving distance of urban areas such as Kitchener- Waterloo, Cambridge, Toronto, and Guelph.
The two nearest towns, Elora and Fergus, are very quaint and have a lot to offer to visitors who’d like to take a day trip.
