(4.3/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
Driftwood Provincial Park is a provincial park on the south shore of the Ottawa River, about west of Deep River, Ontario. It is administered by Ontario Parks which classifies it as a recreation park.The park is situated on a sheltered bay that was created in 1950 after the construction of the Des Joachims hydro-electric dam 12 km downstream on the Ottawa River. This new bay became a spot where driftwood being carried downstream washes ashore.This park has 80 campsites, 20 of which have electrical hookups, making it a popular summer destination for campers who can also swim at one of two sandy beaches, canoe in the Ottawa River, or hike on trails that range over eskers and rocky ridges, offering dramatic views of the Laurentian Mountains across the river in Quebec.The park is also a popular fishing destination being right on the Ottawa river, it offers yellow pickerel, northern pike and smallmouth bass. Although the park is gated in the winter, you can enter on foot for hiking, cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing.

  • We drove up from North Bay for a day hike at Driftwood Provincial Park during the off season in October. The gate was closed so we parked outside and just walked in. It was a short walk on well maintained roads before we reached a well-marked trail. There appeared to be three trails in total. The colours were amazing with yellow birch, maple and red oak leafs at their brightest. We took a good look at many of the camp sites beautifully situated on sandy beaches overlooking a pristine bay. But, I'm not sure we would camp on the waterfront camp sites since they are not private at all and right next to each other. But all in all, the park is incredible! I reckon, if you have a large RV or trailer you'll find lots of space to maneuver and only one or two really steep roads. Out of all the many parks we've been to in Ontario, this was one of my most favourite.
  • The most beautiful sunsets, great campground-long beaches just off of campsites, and great for families
  • nice quiet campground, but very expensive, $41.00 for one person one tent no services.
  • Very nice spot and very clean
  • Nice Park
