We would love for you to spend the weekend with us.

• It helps show the tourism value of whitewater.
• We worry about drinking and driving, or you driving home when you are tired.
• Camping is cheap.
• You can stick around and paddle the Upper Petawawa the next morning. It is a beautiful Class IV run, and arguably one of the best in the province.


Camping is available courtesy of CFB Petawawa at Black Bear Campground – 154 Lieven Road CFB Petawawa. The cost is $5 per person per night and we ask that you pay at Registration on Saturday morning.
It is along the Ottawa River, about a 15 minute flatwater paddle from Golf Course Hole, or conveniently located at the obvious point, just off of Givensche Road on the CFB Petawawa property.
Campfires welcome, and we’ll try to get you some firewood sorted out.
No excuses for drinking and driving, so stay the night and paddle the Upper Petawawa (Class IV) or something else locally (high water Ottawa, Petawawa Town Run, Sea Kayaking, SUP, ride the Forest Lea Trails…)
There will be washrooms or porta potties, however running water is not yet confirmed.
Being right beside the Ottawa River, the canoeing, sea kayaking and fishing is awesome.
