Whether you want to relive those childhood memories, continue your memory from your camping trip last weekend or create first time memories for you and your family, Petawawa is a great place for camping adventures.
Ontario Provincial Parks
Petawawa is the gateway into the east gate of world renowned Algonquin Provincial Park. You can drive in for the weekend or go canoe camping for a week in the interior. There are several opportunities to experience the back country. If you want to try something new and a little different, sections of Algonquin Park are open year-round. The park takes on a whole new beauty in the off-season! Plus there are no mosquitoes and the bears are hibernating.
Other opportunities include canoeing the route of Champlain in Driftwood Park or exploring the routes of the fur traders in Bonnechere Park. The possibilities are endless for you to experience the outdoors and wilderness first hand.
