Trippers:Myself,many other people
Type:day trip's,overnight trips
Time req:dependant
Camping:Oiseaux rock excellent camping in off boat season,chenal du la chebut,islands throughout the area.
Landings:Excellent.mostly sandy beaches.islands rock but simple landings
rating: 3/5
Notes:this is a nice place on the river.However has two Marinas within 20km which makes for a busy area in the main chanel during the warmer months.However sticking to the Quebec side gets out out of the realm of motor boats for the most part.I had a hard time deciding on how to do the Ottawa river,as I have made a billion day trips around this area.I thus put up the highlights of this stretch.Baptisim point-Pointe au Baptême, a sandy point located on the property of the Atomic Energy of Canada site at Chalk River, was a traditional stopping point for fur brigades and the "baptism" site for novice crew members.there doesnt seem to be any signs keeping you off the point itself,however the woods behind is a no go.As well prior to the AECL land is DND land which is also off limits.Rocher Oiseaux rock a Algonquin Pictograph site and sacred ground.Free parking and put in's at Petawawa point as well Black bear beach.The whole area is golden sand.ANY questions please leave a comment below.
