RRCA's Charlottenburgh Park Welcomes Campers and Beachgoers

June 3, 2022

Charlottenburgh Park in South Glengarry is a popular nature spot for many area residents.

In tandem with the warm weather’s return, the Raisin Region Conservation Authority (RRCA) is happy to welcome back campers and beachgoers at Charlottenburgh Park in South Glengarry, a popular recreation spot for many local residents and visitors. The Park recently re-opened for camping and day-use access on May 17.

One of the RRCA’s three Conservation Areas, Charlottenburgh Park is located on the north banks of the St. Lawrence River near Summerstown, just a few kilometres east of Cornwall. The Park offers a beach, nature trails, boat launch, camping sites, and more! Surrounded by trees and wildlife, both serviced and un-serviced lots off campers an opportunity to relax and connect with nature. 

“Camping and going to the beach at Charlottenburgh Park are summer activities enjoyed by area residents year after year, says RRCA Administrative Assistant, Josianne Sabourin. “We are pleased to offer opportunities for the public to access and get up-close with nature.”

Visitors will notice several improvements at the park this year. Eight existing lots have been upgraded to offer electrical service, a new visitors lot parking has been created by the park gatehouse, the trail system has been outfitted with wayfinding signs and markers, as well as dog waste disposal stations, and a new online camping reservation system makes it easier for visitors to plan and reserve their summer getaway at the park. 

The RRCA’s other Conservation Areas, Gray’s Creek and Cooper Marsh are also open to the public. Visitors are encouraged to access the RRCA’s website at rrca.on.ca for directions and to view available amenities.
