A visit to Guelph Lake Conservation Area (13 photos)

The man-made lake was created 45 years ago

Guelph Lake Conservation Area becomes a popular place during the summer months, especially when the temperature starts to soar.

The lake was created 45 years ago with the the construction of the Guelph Lake dam on the Speed River and the lake now attracts crowds to its beaches, especially on weekends.

The conservation area offers sites for camping and a couple of boat-launch areas to put sailboats, canoes, kayaks and row boats into the water.

Paddle boarding has also become popular.

The park also hosts plenty of sporting events including a pair of triathlon meets as well as competitive and charity runs on its roads. And there’s a couple of trails for nature lovers.
