    It is nice to be camping in a quiet place like Peterborough. There are many camping grounds in the area and one of them is the Anchor Bay Camp.

    This camp is situated outside Peterborough approximately 3 hours from Toronto and Ottawa.
    Whatever camping group in Peterborough you are going, it will surely be an enjoyable one.

    Most campgrounds offer tent and RV camping, cottage rentals, and trailer sites. You can swim, boat, and do fishing.

    Come and enjoy an amazing place like Peterborough.

    I had the chance to see the most popular lift lock when I had a camping trip in Peterborough. It is interesting to note that since it was opened in 1904, it leaves a lasting impact on the city's landscape.

    The lift lock in Peterborough is located on the Otonabee River. The dual lifts are considered the highest hydraulic boat lifts in the world.

    I invite you to visit this structure when you are in Peterborough. For detailed information and interesting facts about the lift lock, please click the link to their website I provided below.

    When anyone travels to Peterborough you are usually doing one of two things, going to see the lift locks or fishing in Rice Lake. In my case going home to the farm to see family. Peterborough and surrounding areas have alot of different things to do. They have the Warsaw Caves, Petroglyphs....very cool...native paintings on stone now under glass, but as a child I could sit right upon them. Fishing in Rice Lake is very rewarding for the abundance of fish and the panoramic view. It is all breath taking. When you can take the trip, you will be glad you did.

    I really really like this place. The atmosphere is great, you can sit in the main area, or pool table part, or outdoor patio. Nice place to hang out with friends, girly nights, before you catch a movie. The waiters are really great. Only thing- they will only serve slushy drinks on the patio, don't know what's up with that.

    Favorite Dish: I had the jumbo coconut shrimp cocktail, Fish'n'Chips (very good I am obssessed with fish), and they make excellent Long Islands, my fave, although maybe just a wee bit weak for me.
