Mountsberg Conservation Area Reservoir is home to a 202-hectare water control reservoir on Bronte Creek. Visitors can access the reservoir for fishing from two locations with varying levels of amenities.
The park doesn’t have a boat launch, but small watercraft can be launched from shore and shore fishing is permitted. Visitors may also enjoy other amenities such as the Mountsberg Raptor Centre, Cameron Farm Yard, Play Barn, washrooms and gift shop.
The Mountsberg Dam is accessed through an alternate entrance, and this area offers the best reservoir for fishing and launching of non-motorized boats. Located on Concession Rd. 14 E in Hamilton, the Dam offers a parking lot, boat launch and outhouse. Self-serve fee station in effect.
A jewel of the Mountsberg Conservation Area, The Mountsberg Conservation Area Reservoir is a large water control reservoir and important natural waterway in the watershed. The reservoir was created by building a dam on Bronte Creek where it flows through the park on its way to the Lake Ontario. The wetlands, within the park and to the north of the reservoir are considered provincially significant, as they various habitats for uncommon birds, amphibians and reptiles.
Wetlands are critical to healthy creek systems. They retain flood waters, filter sediment and pollutants to improve water quality, and provide rich, diverse habitats for many species of flora and fauna, native and visiting. These wetlands and nearby fields are also a wonderful habitat for dragonflies that are an important part of the food web, controlling the spread of other insects, and in turn providing food for birds and other wildlife.
