This is a small park with not really a whole lot going on, but it is only a short detour from the highway and shows a nice portion of the Rideau River. There are a few walking paths, but there are not particularly noteworthy.
This provincial park is great for young families and people who are new to camping in provincial parks. The staff were very friendly and professional, however the beaches were very shallow and I would not recommend this park to people looking to swim all day.
Nice park, well kept: small (75 yard across) beach with very shallow water (less than 2' deep). Rentals for canoes, lots of nature programs offered, including educational program on fishing. Did an open water swim in the river, but a word of caution- there are LOTS of plants! Good training for those weirded out by stuff touching them while they... 更多
The park was really nice and the grounds were nicely kept. We stayed in the non electric community large group are with a bunch of people. The restrooms were good because they had 6 which was nice. We didn't actually see the other tent/RV sites. The water was beautiful too. Nice river. Wished we had more time to have kayaked.
Every year, I see improvements added to this facility, washrooms, new fire pits, trails, etc...It is always kept clean and very close to Ottawa. You can rent canoes and paddle on a nice stretch of the Rideau River. There are a few grocery stores nearby in Kemptville to pick up camp food and drinks if you forgot to bring something.... 更多
After I have read the reviews about the noise from the street, we made a reservation for a place near the river. We weren't disturbed by the heavy trucks as other and we enjoyed our stay there. The campground is pretty big. We chose a place with electricity. We didn't payed attention and we found out that the running water... 更多
We have gone to this park a couple of times now for day picnics. Nice, quiet beachfront with picnic tables, bbq's, washrooms, canoe and kayak rental, boat launch, playground. Dogs are permitted if leashed in the picnic area but are not allowed on the beach. There's also a boat launch and campground. Lovely restful spot.
The staff was very friendly and the site was clean enough as was the facilities (washroom, showers, etc..) but the highway noise was excessive. I heard trucks and cars all day and night, not as peaceful as I had hoped. Rented a canoe for a bit and visited the beach which was fun. Walked the one trail, wear trail shoes... 更多
My two young sons and I brought our trailer here this week. The pamper stations are maintained regularly. The beach is also regularly maintained. The roped in area does not get very deep. Deep enough for a short swim. The playground near the beach is fairly new and there is a beach volleyball court. Most sites have decent privacy. My... 更多
