Driftwood Provincial Park: A First Trip

driftwood-banner

Upon the invite from friends of the family, we strayed from our usual mainstay camping fave of Achray in Algonquin Park over to Driftwood Provincial Park for a weekend stay.

The pros of this camping spot:

  • short drive from Ottawa (just over 2 hours)
  • waterfront camp sites are available
  • all sites are well-treed and offer space and privacy
  • the vibe was friendly and there were a lot of families
  • the waterfront is sandy and shallow — safe for kids
  • the toilets are flush, not outhouses
  • showers are available
  • Biggest highlight: stunning location for sunsets each night!

Drawbacks:

  • Rumour has it that the beach area (not the waterfront camp sites) is susceptible to “swimmer’s itch.” We did not experience this personally.

Tips:

  • If you have a kayak, bring it! If not, you can rent a canoe from the park office.

Our conclusion? We’ll be back again soon!
