Whispering Pines - Curran, Ontario

30 sites · Tents60 acres · ON
'Whispering Pines' was bought about 35 years ago as our dream retirement home, a place to rest, have a quiet life, enjoy nature and have a peaceful retirement for ever and ever...In past years we have been a family camp. and an event camp with camping festivals, special events, and day visits. Now we welcome visitors who are looking for a casual, rustic, laid back experience with nature in a simple, peaceful setting. Nature is allowed to thrive on our property, and the entire property is forested and wild. The majority of our campsites are shaded under a verdant and lush canopy. Our private beach and small lake welcome you for a swim. All we ask of our visitors is: that whatever you bring in you take home with you, that you leave your campsite and the property the way you found it, and the only thing you take from here are pictures and happy memories. All of our campsites are off-grid, un-serviced, drive-in camping. Campfire wood and recycling facilities are available on site. Maintained outhouses are available throughout the property. There is no potable water on the property so please bring your own drinking and cooking water. Children under 12 can camp for free. When booking a campsite please only include any guests over 12 years of age in your guest count. Children under 12 do not need to be included in your booking. Contact us to inquire about large group and event rates. We host LARPing weekends twice a month. We also have a limited number of seasonal sites available from June to September. I love this property and all the people who visit us, many have become extended family and for this I am grateful. There is nothing nicer than to have people drop by and spend a couple of hours, a day or a weekend, sometime when I get real lucky it's for a longer period of time :-)

Camp, Ottawa river, Grenville C-O-G

11 sites · RVs, Tents59 acres · Brownsburg Chatham, QC
Come and enjoy a traditional/rustic camping experience on the mighty Ottawa river. Be sure to bring your water shoes and a canoe or kayak, or you may rent one of ours. C-O-G is located on the Quebec side of the Ottawa River, east of the bridge that passes over from Hawkesbury, Ontario. This beautiful (mostly) deciduous forest (situated on both sides of the 344/Rte Des Outaouais), has been in the family for generations. The 59 acre property (50 acres on land, ~9 acres of river/water) features scenic views, privacy and is host to many outdoor activities such as swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, hiking and more, with many other outdoor tourism attractions (white water rafting ~15kms, Parc Omega (zoo)) located nearby. By paddle boat, canoe, or other similar shallow depth water craft, one can head upriver, around an island, and loop back through the remaining historic canal. ...It's a historic lazy river! Many amenities are only 1-3km away, such as a gas station (with fast charging), a grocery store and many restaurants including a Tim Hortons and McDonalds. A little History... Our property has played host to a small portion of the rich history of this area which included three railway tracks, a canal and a lock. The railway beds remain and the lock has simply been flooded over. Following the war of 1812, three Ottawa river canal systems were constructed between 1819 and 1833 to bypass the Long Sault Rapids on the Ottawa river. These canals were in use until 1961 when a large portion of the canal system was submerged due to the construction of a hydro-electric dam (~22kms downriver) at Carillion. As a result, the river level at our property rose high enough to submerge the top of the lock walls by ~3.5 feet. This submerged lock is located a few hundred feet offshore and can be seen using Google Earth as it measures 50' x 300' in size. Once you have a good idea where it is, throw on your water shoes and a life jacket and enjoy an interesting experience of walking on the walls of a submerged lock.

The best camping near Plaisance National Park guide

Overview

About

The word “Plaisance”' means pleasure, and that’s exactly what you’ll find at Plaisance National Park (Parc national de Plaisance) in Quebec. This genteel provincial park, 90 miles (145 kilometres) from Montreal and 50 miles (80 kilometres) from Ottawa, offers a supervised swimming pool, canoeing, kayaking, and stand-up paddle boarding, plus hiking, cycling, and fishing. Visitors should keep their eyes on the skies—the park is part of a major migratory route and nearly 250 different birds have been spotted. Parc national de Plaisance has more than 100 sites for tents and RVs. 

Notable campgrounds

  • Best for families: The Shores Campground has ready-to-camp units with two rooms, plus small refrigerators, heating, and a stove.
  • Best for RVs and campervans: Fer-à-Cheval is set apart from the rest of the park and tent-free.
  • Best for classic park views: La Baie Campground has many sites with water views and shade from mature trees.

Tips for snagging a campsite

  1. A two-night booking rule typically applies for Friday or Saturday visits. However, you can get around this requirement—reservations open up for one-night weekend stays 72 hours before arrival, a great option for last-minute campers.
  2. If you have more than six people in your party but don’t want to book a group campsite,  call the campground directly to inquire about exceptions for large families with multiple kids.
  3. Cyclists don’t have to worry much about reservations. Parc national de Plaisance has partnered with Vélo Québec to set up exclusive Bienvenue Cyclistes camping sites that don’t require advanced reservations.

When to go

The park is open year-round. However, the Discovery and Visitors Center (which hosts the reception desk, nature boutique, exhibitions, and equipment rentals) is only open from early June to mid-October. The area is busiest from late June to early September. Visitors should book well in advance to get reservations for Canada Day weekend and Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day (celebrated across Quebec on June 24).

Know before you go

  • The park’s star attraction is La Zizanie-des-Marais, a floating walkway highlighting plant and animal life along the marsh. Rebuilt after serious flooding in 2017, it’s now wheelchair accessible.
  • The park offers a comprehensive guided discovery program, which includes rabaska canoe rides led by a park naturalist.
  • The park has 16 miles (26 kilometres) of biking trails. Bike rentals are available on-site and they’re free for kids.
  • Visitors looking for groceries, gas, and restaurants can find all the basics just outside the park gates. A little bit further down the road, Papineauville and Montebello have more extensive services and amenities, including hotels and sporting goods stores.
