Owen Mill Sound Dam and Fish Ladder
Located less than one hour from Blue Mountain Lodges, the Owen Sound Mill Dam is the very first dam ever constructed in Ontario. The Owen Mill Sound Dam features a fish ladder which was added on in 1958 to ensure that all local fish were able to migrate upstream to lay their eggs.
Looking for a free way to spend an afternoon? We recommend grabbing a pencil and paper, heading to the Craigleith Provincial Park and tracing some fossils.

Please remember to leave the fossils on the beach to ensure that they are there for all future visitors to enjoy.
