Canoe & Kayak

You can paddle on The Rideau River, which is part of the Rideau Canal UNESCO World Heritage Site. There’s plenty to see and enjoy including a 7 km paddle in to the heart of Kemptville.

Just a word of warning. The Rideau Canal does get very busy with motorized vehicles of all sizes. Fortunately, most are considerate, but some are not so much. Be aware of your surroundings, stay out of navigation channels as much as possible, carry safety equipment, and wear your PFD.

Canoe & Kayak Rental

Canoes, kayaks and stand-up paddle boards can be rented from the Park Office and picked up at the boat launch. Personal Floatation Devices (PFDs) are also available for loan with a $25 refundable deposit. Fishing rod and reel are available free to loan from the Park Office as part of the Tackleshare program.

Where to Launch

There is a boat launch in the park.
