Brock Water

Plan a Rural Overnight Sojourn in Durham Region

Leave the city behind and escape to the Township of Brock. Deemed Ontario’s smallmouth bass capital, this getaway offers beautiful and quaint countryside delights with century-old architecture for visitors to enjoy each season. Located on the scenic shoreline of Lake Simcoe and the Trent-Severn Waterway, this family friendly community is brimming with recreational activities. In the summer months, spend the day fishing, boating, exploring the extensive trail network or soak up the sun and relax on one of Brock’s public beaches. You can also step back into history with its many heritage destinations. Make sure to book your museum tours in advance to ensure availability.
