Campgrounds in Ottawa


We're heading to Ottawa and would welcome any recommendations on campgrounds. There seem to be quite a few negative reviews for the ones I've found so far, and would like to get some firsthand recommendations.

There are no really good campgrounds in Ottawa. The two we use are Rideau Heights Campground and Wesley-Clover Campground. The first is old, rustic and offers 3 way hook-ups. There are no amenities beyond a pool. It is right in the city, on bike and bus routes so it is easy to get around. The other is newer but offers only water and electric. There is a pretty good dump station. Still no amenities except a mini-store. It is on the outskirts of the city but has good routes to down-town.

The short camping season here does not encourage investment in campgrounds with any hope of a reasonable return in a reasonable time frame.

There are a few other campgrounds in the area but they are very much like these two. Do not expect "resort" level here, but come and have a good time anyway. Ottawa is a beautiful city with much to see and enjoy. Well worth "roughing it" campground-wise!!

Experience is what you get from not having it when you needed it.
