The Town of Petawawa operates two municipal boat launches located on each of the Petawawa and Ottawa rivers.
- The Petawawa River boat launch is located at Black Bay on Rantz Rd.
- The Ottawa River launch is located at Petawawa Point Park.
Both launches are available for use at no fee. The docks are put in seasonally as water levels permit. The launch facilities accommodate small motorized craft as well as canoes and kayaks. Users must adhere to the restrictions on parking boat trailers and rigs. Failure to do so may result in fines being levied and/or vehicles being towed. There are no overnight services available at these launch points. Please respect all users of this facility and service.
