I go here when my sisters in law visit the hairdresser in Orangeville. The place is well kept and there is lots to do, just walk the trails, boat, kayak, fish, sit on the beach or grass amphitheater, look at fish and frogs in the water, listen to Cardinals and Woodpeckers. There is free fishing rod hire, a small shop for ice creams and snacks, plus you can rent boats, canoes or kayaks. In the winter you can rent heated ice huts. A new feature appears to be an electric car charging station.

Beautiful trails, loop goes all the way around the lake now so a great outing for families on bikes or out for a walk/run (8-10k). Parking at multiple entrances to Island lake. Maple syrup trips for schools are very educational and fun for the kids.

Beautiful natural and clean. A wonderful place to get exercise and fresh air. There was a lot of wildlife to see as well.

Island Lake Conservation Area is my happy place! Whether it's going for a run through the trails, biking, walking the dogs, it's a beautiful, peaceful place. Though there are days when it can get busy, more often than not it's relatively quiet and peaceful. The trail takes you through forests of cedar, pine, spruce, poplar and many other species of trees. The boardwalk is beautifully done and the lake makes you feel like you're at a cottage. I feel very fortunate to have this in my back yard.

Island Lake is a lovely retreat suitable for the whole family. It offers cross country skiing, ice fishing, fishing, canoeing, swimming and trails to hike. The trails are quite nice to walk any time of the year.

CAUTION:
The geese have taken over the beach and water. The area is often completely polluted with goose poop and bacterial levels in the water can be very high causing closures. If you plan to swim, call first.
