Stop by the Visitor Centre to learn more the lumber industry that thrived here under Henry Cargill, and the making of the town that bore his name. The visitor centre includes old-fashioned wooden toys for kids, plus information about the Greenock Swamp and other attractions in the region. It’s run by Saugeen Valley Conservation and open five days a week in summer, from Wednesday to Sunday until early September.
