With such pleasant scenery and so many outdoor activities, it is no wonder camping is so popular in the Peterborough area. Beavermead Campground is a family campground and day-use area that is owned and operated by the City of Peterborough. Sir John A Macdonald once owned the property where Beavermead stands. According to rumour, Sir John named the property Beavermead because Beaver Creek and Meades Creek flow through the property. Located on beautiful Little Lake in the heart of Peterborough, Beavermead Campground has 98 sites, 46 un-serviced sites and 52 serviced for you to enjoy.
