Good sized lake with nice views around it. Depending on spot you stand - you could get a good sunset view.
Great to go and check out fall colours or plan a picnic at.

Everyone eared the word Meech lake but have you ever been there? No, we’ll go.
Just for the ride or park and walk, or bbq but just few places.
The road on the side of the lake is ultimately a dead end so you should not have too much traffic. Few very nice cottages, well really some very nice home.
No speed there but a Nice curvy road.

Beautiful and very peaceful place if you are lucky enough to get there early in the morning as it could get very crowded later in the day. The lake is so serene, the fall colors in full bloom are amazing. This is a must visit for hikers, nature lovers and photographers.

This part of Canada can develop amazing colours in the fall. We were in Ottawa mid-October, and boy were the colours gorgeous that day. Meech Lake is a mix of private and public holdings, so we were a bit confused as to where we could stop. But we got several views of the lake from one of the access roads, as well as from O'Brien Beach. If you have travel plans for this area, try to get out here in mid-October!

A short drive from Ottawa this beach is worth the drive. Sandy beach and fun for the entire family. Great for a family picnic. Highly recommended.

Took my family hiking on our favourite trail. It is called Wolf Trail and is located near parking. Meech lake is close to the trail. Once we finished the hike we can change into our bathing suits and enjoy a nice dip. Parking is a max of 12 dollars. The lake has life guards at the two locations. One location is at the east side of the lake.
Wolf trail is probably not for everyone as there is many up hill parts. My 8 year old son has no issues.

Otherwy you are paying a very hefty fee for parking $12 and don't count on finding another place because its all private land
