Outdoors

Our county is your oyster!  With 4 watersheds and 3000 hectars of natural  areas and parks to explore, the possibilities are endless. 

Located in the heart of Southwestern Ontario, Oxford County is located at the meet up point of the Carolinian Life Zone and Great Lakes St. Lawrence Forest Region. Just 5.5 hours from Ottawa and 1.5 hours from downtown Toronto, Oxford is an amazing place to spend a getaway enjoying food fresh from the land. Our biggest city (Woodstock) is located right where Highways 401 and 403 meet so it's super easy to get to and acts as a gateway to the rest of the county. Want to know more? Check out our about page. 

Explore the great outdoors the way Oxford locals always have.  Discover rolling farmscapes on your bike, scenic trails, quiet birding areas and paddling tours. Whether you're looking for a guided excursion or just a place to wander alone, there's a spot in Oxford for you! Discover our little piece of Ontario with off-the-beaten-path gems around every corner. Pitch your tent, tee off on a new course, visit a farm and get in touch with Mother Nature.
