Found on the banks of the Nottawasaga River in the hamlet of Edenvale, this scenic Conservation Area offers highway travellers a convenient place to rest, picnic, launch their small boat or drop a fishing line.

Known locally as the 'take-out' after a canoe trip through the Minesing Wetlands, this area can be used for overnight camping by people arriving by canoe only. A $5.00 fee per person is applied for camping and will be collected on site. A group camping area can also be reserved. 

This area is managed by the Township of Springwater, which is responsible for setting and collecting all fees. NVCA parking passes are not valid at this location.

For current fees call: 705-728-4784.
