7 Parks near Carleton Place, Ontario
Aug 2014 - $45.00
This park is certainly tranquil, with shady trees, however it is not much of a park. In addition to the rate of $45.00 they charge $5.00 for Wi-Fi which barely allows you to download email, they charge for showers, and have no laundry facilities. The park is mainly full timers. Grass parking bays and no real facilities other than the basics. We stayed here 3 nights. - TommBoyd

This price includes the tax. Quiet and well maintained park. You pay for Wi-Fi ($5.00) but it worked very well. Had a couple park water issues (pressure) but management quickly resolved the problem. Park is only a couple miles from Carleton Place, so grocery shopping is easy. Very friendly staff. - cooter5

As the name says, very tranquil, well laid out park. We arrived in a downpour and the campground had some issues with minor flooding from a very wet spring. The owners showed us to our site and helped us back in. They are extremely friendly and have a pride of ownership and care in the park. The grounds have nice mature trees and the sites are not crowded together. Well thought out recycling program and activities like horseshoes etc. We spent 5 nights here and it is a great place for seeing the area while being able to escape back to a quiet place at night. - Island Folk

Just a great park. We try to visit every year. If you stay on the canal side you can chat with the boaters while they move by between the 2 locks. You get to watch the bridge open to allow a parade of beautiful boats go by. You are right in the middle of a picturesque town within walking distance to everything. Clean restrooms and showers, water and electric. Dump station. Even the free wifi is good. - Smasma

Park is right on the Rideau Canal in downtown Smiths Falls. Easy walk into town.
Sites are on either side of the central road - on the canal or backing on to residential back yards - lots of trees on this side.
We had booked site backing onto the canal, but very few shade trees along the canal. It was hot (36C) when we arrived so we opted for a site in the trees. Much more comfortable for us as we do not have a/c yet.
Note: park has only water and electric - no sewers. There is a dump station close to office.
Park offers seasonal rates. There were some seasonal campers but they mixed in well with transients like us. Hard to tell who was who.
Highly recommended. We would stay here again. - DCM/JMB

Very clean and well kept. Showers are cleaned twice a day but they are small. Half the sites back onto the Rideau Canal and are very nice with boats moving up and down thru the canal from lock to lock. Walking distance to shops and pubs downtown. Only issue is no sewer on sites but a good dump station is available. There are boat docks for vessels traveling the Rideau Canal System available. - jasper0803

Site was on exposed bedrock and was uneven. It was a "pull-through" (parallel with the road) but the electric and water service were located on the opposite side of our 40' motorhome. Luckily there was no one in the next site and we were able to use it to turn around and come in from the other direction. It took a little maneuvering but once we were situated the site worked fine for us, considering other choices of campgrounds in the area. We had the only 30 amp site in our loop. Most of the 30 amp sites in the park were located in another loop but we never took the time to check them out. Campground was located close enough to downtown Ottawa that it was a quick drive into the city center. There is also a bike trail very close by that we used to ride into the city one day (20+ miles round trip). Most of the sites are isolated by thick underbrush so there was a good bit of privacy. WiFi was available at the rest rooms and our Verizon service was good. - Ramblin On

This was a nice place and we would definitely return if in the area. It is part of a larger recreational complex that includes hiking/biking trails and a large equestrian park. It was, or is a government park that is now owned or managed by the same folks who developed the Kanata area and also own and manage the Brookstone hotel and The Marshes Golf Club. All sites are large and in the woods. Although other sites may be in view, you have a real sense of privacy due to all of the trees. Water and 30 amp power. No sewer sites, but there is a dump station. We did laundry: there are 5 washers and 5 dryers that were clean and worked well. $2 per load. Numerous restrooms and showers. Nothing fancy, but clean and they work. There is a wifi hotspot at each bathhouse and at the office, but the signal doesn't reach very far. We saw lots of folks standing around the bathhouses using their electronic devices. The park is quiet, although as someone else mentioned, you're not too far from the 417. But compared to other places we've stayed, the traffic noise was minimal. The staff was VERY friendly and helpful! Hard to believe someplace this nice exists only 15 minutes from downtown Ottawa! - FireFlyer

The park itself very quiet but with the parks' close proximity to the 417, you do hear traffic. The 417 is the main artery into the city for most commuters. You do get to the noise after a while. The washrooms are a bit dated but are kept clean. There is a playground and the park has a "Forest and Nature School" for the kids. - GandRHarris

A gem of a private park on White Lake in the Pakenham hills. Staff was friendly and accommodating and the park was quiet and family-friendly. There's an excellent salt water swimming pool for cooling off and during our stay there was a fair with lots of attractions and plenty of free food. We recommend this park. We'll be back. - JD and Beastlet

The camp administrators are very personable and happy to give advice on where to eat, local activities, etc. Although there were other families with children, the majority of people at this site seemed to be pre-senior/senior, many with seasonal set ups. We stayed for three nights, and two of those nights the gate was closed to traffic by 9pm. No bigs, I just let the chain out and drove in, but it would have been nice to know if there was a curfew. There were no children's play areas on site, but there is a nice park about a 5 minute walk down the road. The park is lovely with pleasure craft and yachts sailing right past the door to our tent, much to the delight of my children (aged 6 & 3). There were no pools or splash pads evident in the immediate area, but for the price, I wasn't expecting anything spectacular. The only big shock/surprise was the fact that multiple trains go by the campsite each night, tooting their whistles! This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but we certainly were not expecting it! We would stay again. - HendersonClan

Great overnight park or short stay, mostly back in spots. No sewer, do have a dump station and fresh water fill up area. Located on the Rideau River. Beautiful village all services in walking distance. Parks Canada Lock Station next door. Free firewood, trailers are close together. Great value for the price and the Lions Club its a great organization. - The Allens

First time there. Easy to book on line and pick your site, you can prepay. Park Store, two hiking trails, paved main access roads. Power hook up on most sites. No water hook ups but free fill station and dump station on the park. Variety of taps around the park to fill buckets and things. Frustration reaching power supply and fitting our 17-foot trailer into some spaces. Late check out. Long wait for dump station, took us an hour to get our turn; last day of long weekend, most likely why. No site the same so revisit in the future. Village has beer/wine/pizza at the corner store. And they do deliver to your trailer! - The Allens

Beautiful location in the Canadian Shield on Big Rideau Lake, part of the historic Rideau Canal system. Interesting terrain and they've done a great job of creating level campsites. We really enjoyed the privacy. Huge sites, lovely trails. - dresda
