Your Home Away From Home
Willowood Camp in Roseneath, Ontario is located on 4.5 acres along the south shore of Rice Lake. Your next cottage getaway is only 1.5 hrs. away from Toronto, 3 hrs. from our nation’s capital, Ottawa and 2 hrs. from Kingston
Rice Lake is well known for some of Ontario’s finest fishing -- muskie, pickerel, bass and plenty of panfish. For the avid anglers, we have a store on site that carries bait and tackle along with some essentials. Our extra-large screened fish cleaning hut is ready for your day’s big catch. We request that you bring your cleaning knives but a fish freezer is available for your convenience to dispose of any waste using the supplied plastic bags.
Willowood Camp is minutes away from the Rice Lake tourist area full of activities for the whole family! Take a trip back in time when with a visit to the Lang Pioneer Village Museum, watch boats skillfully navigate the Peterborough Lift Lock, sample and taste the award-winning cheese at the Empire Cheese Factory, let your wild side out with the animals at the Peterborough Zoo or picnic at the nearby Riverview Park, roar with the dinosaurs at the Indian River Reptile & Dinosaur Park, try the course at Pine Crest Golf Club, shop in one of the many villages in the area or simply spend the day relaxing and working on your tan along 350ft. of our very own shoreline. For the adventurers looking to explore, a day trip can be spent in Toronto with all the excitement of the CN Tower, the Toronto Zoo, Science Centre or Canada’s Wonderland.
We have outboard boat motors, a 20ft. pontoon, canoes, kayaks available for rent on-site and we provide available docking along with boat launch access for long-term guests. Life vests are provided with all watercraft rentals. For guests who enjoy fishing but don’t have their sea legs, the pier is wide enough to fish from as well. To keep the kids entertained while you fish, we have a sandpit to enjoy or they can go for a swim in the shallow waters of the lake along the shore. Dusk allows everyone to enjoy the beautiful sunsets while taking pictures that will make you the envy among all your friends while relaxing by the campfire. There is also free Wi-Fi available on site (store area) for those who need to stay connected.
Our season begins on the Victoria Day weekend every May and lasts until Thanksgiving Weekend in October. Contact us now to reserve your family’s next cottage vacation!
