Small provincial park that is very well run. Friendly staff. While some campsites are close together on the water the place was quiet and family oriented. We canoed over to the Desmoines River which was worth the trip.

I've visit Driftwood on a regular basis. The beach faces up river to the Northwest so the sunsets are first class. The campsites are a little tight for my liking but they are clean and maintained well. I found the fishing somewhat slow for walleye....More

This was our first attempt at camping with our small children. We had a lot not directly on the water, but didn't think it'd be an issue bc there was a beach. We were a bit confused about how to access this "public" beach. We...More

Hello Mark, YES! Driftwood park is tailor made for canoeing. If you get a camp site over on the west side close to the water you can launch right from your site into the wide Ottawa river. There are lots of small islands and... More

The trails are set up like loops (they colour code them.. red, yellow, green, etc.), and each one isn't very long - maybe averaging around 4km? To get to some loops you have to go on other loops (you can't get to green... More
