This campground is in an excellent central location in Ottawa easily accessed off Prince of Wales Road just north of the junction with Hunt Club Road. Most of the amenities are satisfactory, including wifi (spotty at times) and laundry ($1.75 wash, 0.25/7min dry). The sites are level and gravelled (except for the tent sites) although perhaps a little short for some big rigs though there are several +40ft here. There is some noise from trains, aircraft and trucks but it all calms down at night. The host, is almost always available and quite polite. He seems to be a little hard of hearing but operates well in English and French. Fees are paid in cash only. The monthly rate, $805, is very reasonable, but needs some planning (for most of us) to pay in cash. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Rideau Heights Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

We have noted some past negative reviews of this campground but we feel it is a good deal and allows easy exploration of all the wonderful sights of Ottawa. Every kind of shop you could need is available along Merivale Road, about 5 min away by vehicle. If you like hiking, there are numerous National Capital Commission trails. Buses are free for seniors on Wednesdays.

Very grumpy manager. Our kids called him grumpy. Everything is old and needs updating. Only advantage is closeness to City. We camped at Rideau Heights Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

Great park to visit if you are just needing a place to stay for a few nights and are spending time in Ottawa. The laundromat backing the park was a bit loud and ran 24/7. Friendly service and a nice outdoor pool. We camped at Rideau Heights Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Pool was large and clean!! Very noisy (by airport and train tracks). A lot of migrant/seasonal workers camping in their tents (and very close to each other). Wouldn't stay again. We camped at Rideau Heights Campgrounds in a Travel Trailer.

Rideau Heights Campsite is located right in Ottawa. The campground is relatively small however, they manage to put a lot of people in it. They take cash only and it appears it is first come first serve as we called ahead and thought we reserved a space, however, upon arrival they gave it away. The management gave no reason and therefore I will never return. We camped at Rideau Heights Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is right in the city. It's small but quite well kept. Nearly always full. Just off one of the main highways (#16) that comes into Ottawa from the south. Train track very near the park but the convenience makes up for the noise. Price based on monthly rate. Cash only. We camped at Rideau Heights Campgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.
