BRANT CONSERVATION AREA – MAY 2009
We visited Brant in May of 2009 on the Victoria Day weekend. This park is part of the Grand River Conservation Authority. As usual the staff were friendly and the park very clean. Unfortunately, the sites in our part of the campground were very close together with no privacy. We did some kayaking on a short stretch of the Grand River that was accessible at the park.
Here are some kayaking photos:
The park is very scenic. We fished the Grand River above the dam while here, but didn’t catch anything. Here are some photos of the park scenery:
The Gordon Glaves bike trail is just outside the campground, so we packed up our mountain bikes and spent an afternoon biking the trail. Here are some photos:
Here are some more pictures of the campground and park:
We stayed at Brant CA the May long weekend in 2009. Needless to say, the park was very busy and very noisy. Park patrols were regular and the noise ended around 11pm as expected. Our site was in the “Hydro B” area and not private at all. We had neighbours close to us on each side and behind us as well. The campground was very clean and very well maintained, although as mentioned not at all private. The washrooms and showers were very clean as is always the case with Grand River parks. Other than the lack of privacy, I really can’t complain about anything else at this park. As for wildlife encounters at the park, we only had one to speak of. The day we were leaving we had stopped at the dumping station which is located beside a large field. We noticed a few deer grazing. I didn’t get any pictures though. If I could find a nicer site at Brant, I’d probably go back again due to its close proximity to home.
