  • Great chance to stretch your legs en route to Ottawa. The driveway is very rugged and is on the north side just west of the bridge going over the river. There is a creamy colour sign that is not very ...  more »
  • I was looking for a place to go, that was out of the way and away from people. I had heard about Egan Chutes through a fellow photographer. I went during the week, and even tho I drove by the first tr...  more »
  • I'd just like to help clarify how to get to the chutes, so others don't have to repeat my missteps. The turn-off is about 50 meters west of the Route 28 bridge over the York River. You turn North (lef...  more »

  • Great short hike. Pretty easy. Watch out if you have a low car on the short road in to the parking lot. You could just park out by the main road.
  • A true hidden gem of a provincial park. Nice trails and the chutes are a fantastic sight with great photo opportunities. If you're passing by, you have to watch for the unmarked driveways on either side of the river.
  • We hiked along the east side to the Farm chutes - amazing hike, and it is hidden away from the yahoos that you would find at other provincial parks. Love the area!
  • I just canoed the river from Egan Chutes to Boulter (Slabtown) 10.6 miles. Spent the night on the sandbar just past Farm Chute. Breathtaking! Woke to a brilliant thick morning fog created by the Chute. Fishing was great. Pike everywhere. Portages are a bit rough and sometimes quite steep. But once on the water. Easy going for any level of paddler. Google maps shows it as The Madawaska River. Error! It's The York River Google maps show 2 Chutes on map. Error! Between the 2 Chutes on map is a third Chute named Middle Chute. If your planning to do it this fall, plan for 4 portages as there is a log jam by Great Bend.
