Gould Lake Conservation Area is a conservation area near Sydenham.

The wilderness that makes up the Gould Lake Conservation Area covers 589 hectares, and offers 20km of trails that wind through the rugged terrain of the Canadian Shield. Gould Lake’s true value is that it makes an excellent wildlife habitat, which creates opportunities to observe how ecosystems behave outside of human settlement.

The Limestone District Board of Education operates its outdoor education programs on this property using the barn adjacent to the beach as its headquarters, and the Gould Lake Outdoor Centre hosts summer youth programs.
