Winter in CK

Winter in Chatham-Kent means plenty of family-friendly seasonal activities to enjoy! If you are visiting before Christmas, check out our Holidays in CK page for great events to take part in. 

You can try your hand at ice fishing at one of our many local spots like Mitchell's Bay or Rondeau Bay. We've even seen some brave souls on Lake St. Clair, Lake Erie, and the Thames River. Just be sure the ice is safe first! When the weather is right, you can also enjoy outdoor ice skating or a family game of pickup hockey on the ice. 

For those that love to take in the natural wonders of the winter season, find new places to explore like trails, parks, and conservation areas! Some local favourites include Mud Creek in Chatham, Rondeau and Wheatley Provincial Parks, and CM Wilson Conservation area. There are also plenty of birding and hunting opportunities in the winter season.

After spending the day outside, warm up with a trip to one of the many bakeries and coffee shops in Chatham-Kent with many offerings on on Bakery Trail

Take a moment to stop and enjoy some of the beautiful local barn quilts located throughout Chatham-Kent. These barn quilts are large painted replicas of fabric quilt blocks installed on barns or mounted posts in public places that highlight the history of our local community.

We've outlined just some of the things to do when you #VisitCK, but be sure to come and discover on your own. Follow #SeeYouinCK on Facebook and Instagram for more great places to visit and ways to spend your days in Chatham-Kent.
