Provincial Parks

Covid-19 Notice

In compliance with Provincial Government orders, to ensure public safety, provincial parks have re-opened for limited day-use access. Currently, self-guided activities such as walking, hiking, biking, boating, paddling and fishing will be permitted. Limited backcountry camping is available. All buildings and facilities within the parks continue to be closed.

There are two Provincial Parks within our boundaries; Petroglyphs Provincial Park (displaying the largest known concentration of aboriginal rock carvings in Canada), and the recently designated 34,000 hectares set aside for long-term preservation (due to the fragile ecosystem) as the Kawartha Highlands Signature Site Provincial Park, the largest single area of preserved land in the southern part of the province.

Provincial Parks in and around North Kawartha are the following:

The Kawartha Highlands Signature Site Provincial Park

Petroglyphs Provincial Park

Silent Lake Provincial Park

The Gut Conservation Area (Crowe Valley Conservation)
