Lake Whittaker Conservation Area Lake Whittaker is a decent sized Conservation Area about 30 minutes outside London Ontario (close to the hamlet of Harrietsville). It is a nice little spot which gives you a nice feeling of being out in the great outdoors without having to drive a long distance. It has two main camping areas - Lakewood and Pool Side. Lakewood as the name suggests is down by the man-made Lake which features nice fishing, and despite being man made has been around for many years and looks very well established and "natural". The camping here is not for the faint of heart as the sites of muddy, very uneven and a haven for ravenous mosquitoes. Poolside consists of more open grassy plots located near to a beautiful washroom facility and great swimming pool. There are some seasonal folks who live in the park during the Summer, but they are all very friendly and welcoming. Sites all have water and power hookups and the sites can be booked online. While we do prefer the provincial parks , Lake Whittaker is a nice standby if we decide to do an impromptu camping trip on a Friday night.
