Day Use Vehicle Permits: because of the popularity of this park, it is one that may need permits to be purchased in advance in order to guarantee park access. This was started in 2021 and will continue in 2022.
If you’re smart, grab the permit before any visit, even mid-week. We found this out the hard way at our local Provincial Park.
You can buy the vehicle permit up to 5 days in advance, which guarantees you access to the park on that day. If you have an annual or season pass, you should still book your permit online, but there’s no extra charge.

Canoe & Kayak
Voyageur is a great place to paddle. Located on the reservoir of the Carillon Dam, the Ottawa River portion of the park is wide and more lake-like in nature. making canoeing a safe and somewhat leisurely activity. The park has many small bays and inlets where visitors can explore and view wildlife.
If you love kayak fishing, there are plenty of opportunities. In spring catfish and barbotte (bullhead) is a popular quarry . In the summer, bass, pike, perch and walleye are the most abundant, Fishing from shore for panfish is fun for both the young and not-so-young visitor. The Park Store sells fishing tackle and worms during the spring and summer. Just remember to get yourself an Ontario fishing permit/licence.
