Contact Information


Durham Conservation Area is located within the quiet Town of Durham along the scenic Saugeen River. Like all of Saugeen Conservation’s camping parks, the sites are large, spacious and tucked in amongst mature trees and woodlands. They offer the perfect setting for the ‘real’ camping experience! Durham has over 200 campsites, both serviced and non-serviced. Although the campground is located within town, it is private and quiet offering visitors a secluded location to enjoy their camping experience. Regardless of which site you choose, you’re never far away from the captivating sounds of the river.

If you’re looking for something to do, take one of the trails into town. Durham offers a museum, shopping opportunities and scenic vistas along the river. A must see at this park is the beautiful McGowan Falls. These falls are featured in the Waterfall Tour Guide published by Grey County Tourism. They also appear in many of the local tourism guidebooks. McGowan Falls is quite accessible for those wanting to take that ‘perfect’ photo for the family scrap book!

Durham offers many of the amenities of any campground, including showers, picnic pavilions, entertainment and a variety of recreational opportunities, including fishing, swimming, biking, hiking and more! Durham Conservation Area is a park of Saugeen Conservation. Visit for more information or to book your next camping vacation!
