Binbrook is home to the Lake Niapenco reservoir, the largest inland lake in the Niagara Watershed.

Well known as a “hot spot” for fishing, Binbrook Conservation Area also plays host to annual fishing derbies. Other facilities that can be found at Binbrook include a swimming beach, children’s splash pad, picnic facilities, nature trails, observation platforms and a play area. It resembles cottage country, and the impressive part is, it’s close to home!

Bring or rent a rowboat, paddle boat or canoe, and experience scenic Binbrook from the water. Canoe along the tranquil shores of one of the few inland lakes located within the Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority’s watershed.

It is recommended that guests refrain from using charcoal when bbqing and instead, opt for the use of propane. Please note there are no receptacles to dispose of hot coals on-site and this poses a fire hazard.

Beach Conditions and Water Quality 

Natural bodies of water are great places to play, swim and cool off on a hot sunny day. However, swimming in these areas is not risk-free. There is always a level of risk when swimming in a natural water body, whether it's on the shores of Lake Erie, jumping off a dock at a cottage or going to an NPCA beach.

Natural water bodies, such as rivers and reservoirs, are exposed to contamination from various sources. The conditions and quality of the water can change quickly due to a number of environmental factors. These factors can influence the level of bacteria in the water to the point where it increases the risk of getting sick. LEARN MORE.
