FAQ

How many people can I have on my camp site?

You may have up to 6 people stay on a site. However, special consideration can be given to larger families. They must all be immediate family members and living at the same address.

When does the swimming pool open?

The pool is typically open from the end of June until the Sunday of Labor Day weekend. A pool schedule is posted at the pool information board as well as at the gate and registration office. The pool is available for use by our overnight and seasonal campers only. Day Users will not be permitted entry in the pool. 

 

Do you have any waterfront seasonal camping sites available?

Waterfront seasonal sites are very hard to come by at Pittock, and generally we do not have any available. Sites are permitted on a first come, first served basis. To check availability please call Pittock Conservation Area at 519-539-5088.

Where can I rent a canoe?

We are now offering canoe rentals at the Park Store / Registration Office. Cost to rent a canoe for a day is $35.00 which includes paddles, life vests and a marina safety kit.

Canoes are rented on a first come, first served bases starting at 9:00am. All canoes must be returned before 7:00pm daily. 

Where does the park get its money?

One of the most common myths we encounter is that people think that we receive tax dollars to operate the Conservation Area. This is false. All revenue is generated only through gate and user fees.

Do you have an alcohol ban?

We do not have an alcohol ban. Alcohol can only be consumed on your campsite. Open alcohol is not permitted anywhere other than your camp site. Don't drink and drive or boat.

Where can we get firewood?

Firewood is available at the Pittock Conservation Area park store/ registration office. If you plan on bringing your own firewood, please ensure it is not coming from a quarantined area.
