Camping

Conservation Halton offers group camping to organized groups with 10 or more campers.  Group Camping is available at both Kelso and Rattlesnake Point. Site availability varies by season with some limits due to other park activities. Reservations can be made through Visitor Services by contacting us at vslead@hrca.on.ca or 905-878-5011 ext.1273.

Camping reservations consist of:

  • Reservation Admin Fee (per booking): A reservation admin fee of $10 will be applied to each reservation at the time of booking. Changes to reservations or cancellations more than 48 hrs in advance will be billed $25. Adding campers to your reservation is not a Change to Reservation.
  • Site Fee (per site)
  • Gate Fees (per person): Group Camping is available for 10 persons or more. A minimum of 10 gate fees (mix of adult / children) will be applied to all reservations. Additional persons may be added at posted gate rates.
