Begin your day at Warsaw Caves Conservations Area and Campground. Discover your spelunking (the exploration of caves) abilities by exploring these incredible caves created over 350 million years ago. All you need is a flashlight or a headlamp to enjoy the seven caves that are yours to explore. Pack a picnic lunch because your exploration could last all day. Warsaw Caves also offers hiking trails and a lake for swimming, fishing and canoeing. Spend the evening in one of the 52 camp sites if one day wasn’t enough for you.
Camp Kawartha is also included in this township and offers 186 acres of stunning waterfront for groups to explore. They operate year round and offer summer camp programs, curriculum-linked education programs, corporate team building programs and facility rentals. Their facilities provide an inspirational setting for team building retreats, conferences, youth group outdoor weekend activities, family reunion, green weddings or any special event.
Head over to Harbour Town at McCracken’s Landing for a change of pace looking over Stony Lake. Wander around the marina which has 14 brand new docking slips and is sure to accommodate some larger boats, which may leave you awestruck. Or enjoy the water yourself by renting a paddle board or motor boat from Cottage Toys.
Looking over the water as the boats cruise by, enjoying a glass of wine and an incredible meal. Sounds like a dream doesn’t it? Lantern Restaurant and Grill can make this dream a reality for lunch or dinner. They showcase local produce by seasonally rotating their menu, and offer both indoor and outdoor seating looking out over Stony Lake. For dessert head into Firefly Bakery & Supply which offers baked goods and Kawartha Dairy Ice Cream.
