Nature / Park Must See
Fitzroy Provincial Park is a provincial park on the Ottawa River, Ontario designated as recreational-class by Ontario Parks. Majestic white pine covers much of this park beside the Ottawa River. The park features century-old trees and a stand of 300-year-old bur oaks by the Carp River while shale terraces and pillars reveal a glacial past and an even mightier waterway. There are two campgrounds within the park both with comfort stations, a boat launch and park store. The main campgrounds offer 235 treed and private campsites, 107 with electrical service, and 205 with room for trailers. A separate area features facilities for group camping and picnicking.

  • Wednesday to Friday - no one around, great privacy! (Mid Sept.) Still a bit muddy from record-setting rain this year, but the park is well maintained. All provincial campgrounds are typically better t...  more »

  • Great spot, although can be really busy! We love to go here day-camping, we plan for the whole day. They have some good barbecue pits and we always cook up a yummy lunch/dinner. You can canoe and just take a hike around the wooded areas. Very nice spot to hang out with the family.
  • My husband and I LOVED this provincial park and we will be back sometime, hopefully, in the not so far future! We were at a site almost right across from the newer comfort stations. We were very pleasantly surprised to see that there were laundry facilities as we were about a week into our honeymoon camping excursion and needed clothes washed! The showers were exceptional and the bathrooms just as nice. The sites were fairly close together with not much privacy, but we were gone exploring Ottawa so it didn't bother us. We also recommend eating in Arnprior if in the area as they have a couple really good eateries as well! Strongly recommend this park!
  • Beautiful well maintained park & campground. New comfort station is excellent. Terraces Trail is beautiful - especially the waterfall with all the spring run off. Seeing deer up close was very cool. Would most definitely come again.
  • We booked the site 227. Great location near the comfort station. Good privacy. However, the site did not have good drainage and the gravel was totally eroded. We ended up in a mud pit and a pond. We are experienced campers and have camped through many very rainy days. This site forced us to leave a day early. We were covered in mud and the pond started to take over our camp site. We had to throw away some of our equipment as it was too muddy to take back with us. The store closed at 6 pm on a Saturday evening. We would like to thank the wardens that took the time to get us some firewood. Some of which we had to leave behind due to the mud.
  • Beautiful park! The beach is well maintained, there is a play structure that a 2 year old would be able to handle. Great trail to explore... You can get to the waterfall with a stroller. Very clean and staff are very friendly!!
