Tranquility on the Bay (Adults)

3 sites · RVs, Tents1 acre · Quyon, QC
There's something that just makes you feel good being here. I looked at many properties before deciding on this one because "it just felt right". This flat terrain is rich in history. Pontiac Bay was fundamental in the logging era and held the local Trading post. The bay is nestled between Luskville Falls and Fort Coulonge Falls. As you drive here you will begin to feel a sense of calm within you as you glance out your right window to see the Gatineau Hills and to your left, you will see that you're winding your way along the Ottawa River. Or, if you decide to use the ferry crossing from Fitzroy Harbour on the Ontario side we're only 8 minutes from there. I have an old, but river-worthy canoe you may borrow but feel free to bring your own canoe, kayak, paddleboat or SUP to explore the land and inlets around the bay. Both sites have access to the boat launch. No toilet facilities at property so bring your own camping toilet or self-contained RV. P.S. You might want to stop in the village for the best french fries in all of the Outaouais region. You'll see the big red chip truck across from Marcotte's, the gas station as you leave the ferry terminal, if you're coming from Fitzroy Harbour. And yes, they make pulled pork poutine, pogos, burgers and zucchini sticks. If you're here on the weekend you may also want to check out the Bristol Farmer's market every Saturday from Noon to 3pm on the public beach in Norway Bay, only 20 minutes away. It's a lovely quaint community mixed with old and new unique cottages so you'll definitely want to take a drive around. And you'll surely want to visit the Vineyard and Vintage Car Museum, a 2-minute drive from here if you enjoy wine and cars (but not at the same time lol...unless the keys AREN'T in the ignition ha!). Google Domaine de Pontiac Village for hours and more information or message me. Visit Parc des Chutes in Fort Coulonge for a view of the waterfalls, zip lining over the gorge and obstacle courses. (The view of the gorge is breathtaking!) Want to try whitewater rafting for an exhilarating rush? Try Esprit or Horizon X, both about 40 minutes north. How about Go Karting? visit lecircuitquyon dot com .

For those looking to explore beyond the village, Gatineau and Ottawa are only a short 20-minute drive away, offering even more attractions and experiences to enjoy.

The best camping near Fitzroy Provincial Park guide

Overview

About

Fitzroy Provincial Park is a small park less than an hour from downtown Ottawa. It’s the ideal destination when you want to combine rural relaxation with some urban escapes. Visitors go swimming in the Ottawa River, explore area forests (including a century-old White Pine forest and a group of 200-year-old bur oaks), and tackle beginner-friendly hiking trails. The 2.4-kilometre Terraces Trail, in particular, should be on every camper’s list. The park’s shale pillars remind hikers of the powerful glaciers that once moved through here, as do the massive boulders left behind. Keep an eye out for the small waterfall near the beginning of the path.

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for families: Two Rivers has a small, shallow beach.
  • Best for hikers: Pine Grove is set near the park’s two small hiking trails.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. All Ontario Provincial Parks accept reservations up to five months in advance of arrival. Waterfront sites and summer weekends book up quickly, so plan accordingly.
  2. As such, if you miss out on grabbing a reservation when they open, wait patiently for the four-month mark. Reservations cannot be changed or cancelled more than four months in advance. After that, some cancellations will roll in.
  3. Campers can shorten their stay and receive a full refund if they cancel before 12pm on their day of departure. If you need a last-minute site, check around noon to see if you can grab one of those freshly cancelled spots.

When to go

Fitzroy is open from mid-May until mid-October. Like most Ontario provincial parks, it has a complete liquor ban on Victoria Day (the second to last Monday of May) and for the 10 days preceding it. Campsites book especially early for the Canada Day long weekend (July 1). As the park is just down the road from Ottawa, this is a very busy time for the entire region.

Know before you go

  • Fitzroy’s boat launch can accommodate small boats, kayaks, and canoes. However, on occasion, the fluctuating water level of the river affects availability.
  • The Ottawa River is well stocked with walleye, pike, bass, and panfish. Good fishing sites in Fitzroy include the boat launch, along the shore, and near Butternut Island (where the Ottawa and Carp Rivers meet, accessible by boat). A provincial fishing license is required.
  • The nearby community of Carp is home to a popular farmers’ market, cafes, and shops but is best known for its annual garlic festival, a must-see for foodies.
