Deer Creek

Deer Creek is a tributary of Big Creek in Norfolk County, Ontario, Canada.[1] It is one of the watercourses managed by the Long Point Region Conservation Authority (LPRCA).[2] The LPRCA operates the 301-acre (122 ha) Deer Creek Conservation Authority.

Deer Creek was dammed in 1969, creating an 80-acre (32 ha) reservoir.[3][4][5] The reservoir is in a forested area, and the Conservation Authority opened campsites, available for campers. Canoes can be rented. Fishing is allowed.
