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.

  • Great place to go. Has two beaches, a boat launch, kayak/canoe rentals, typical drive-in campsites, a building with non-outhouse washrooms plus laundry machine and showers, and a small store. Only gripe is they have very few trails, between 2-3 depending what you count. Not for the hardcore, but great for families especially with kids under the age of say 16.
  • We love Fitzroy harbour! We've taken a week off this summer and last and spent them at Fitzroy. Its very kid friendly, which is why is usually busy but that doesn't bother us. Both the sites and the washrooms are tidy. Can't wait til we got back next summer!
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Great time, nice sites. Book a site on the Carp River! Some sites on the Ottawa River side have a "lovely" (not) view of the Chats Falls generating station, along with a background hum... But sites in the Carp River are fantastic. If water is warm and not too low, and you have something to float on, you can do a lazy river ride!
