2249 Northey’s Bay Rd., Woodview, ON, K0L 3E0
Petroglyphs Provincial Park is a historical-class provincial park situated in Woodview, Ontario, Canada, northeast of Peterborough. It has the largest collection of ancient First Nations petroglyphs in Ontario.
Warsaw Caves Conservation Area (35 min. drive)
289 Caves Rd., Warsaw, Ontario
The Warsaw Caves Conservation Area and Campground takes its name from a series of seven caves found in the park. The caves were formed thousands of years ago at the end of the last ice age by the rushing melt waters of a glacier that covered Ontario. All you need is a flashlight or a headlamp to enjoy this natural underground jungle gym. You can spend a couple of hours or the whole day exploring the caves. Wear clothes you don't mind dirtying and close fitting shoes and then come on out for some underground fun.

Lower Buckhorn Lake, Ontario
