Fourteen campsites are located on Big Rideau Lake and can be accessed by canoe or boat. A total of four clusters (three clusters of four and one cluster of two campsites) are located a 5 to 45 minutes paddle from the boat launch. The three larger clusters (Noble, Narrows, Feldspar) have docking facilities to accommodate motorboats. Motorboats are not permitted at the Rideau cluster of two campsites.

At each campsite, you will find a picnic table, tent space and a pit toilet nearby.
Campsites can be reserved during the peak summer season and are available on a first- come,first-served basis in the spring and after Labour Day.
