Great family campground!
Jul. 2021 • Family
Excellent park! Our site was very large. Great nature trails. The one is short enough to take smaller children on. Boat launch is a great little fishing spot or place for your dog to cool off. The second beach is much less busy than the main beach but the water is very very shallow no matter how far out you go. The main beach is HUGE! But does have a drop off. My only complaint was the cleanliness of the comfort station. Seemed to be cleaned once in the morning then not again until the next morning and was quite filthy by night time. All in all a great stay!!

Good park, staff not so much
Aug. 2020 • Friends
The park was nice, big beach. We went during covid and there was absolutely no social distancing enforcement. Hundreds of people at the beach and no separation or masks if they chose to be closer.

The wardens/rangers (whatever they are called) we horrible. Got "noise complaints" every night for silly reasons. A few adults should be able to sit around a fire at 10pm talking at a normal conversation level without having some power tripping wanna-be cop showing up every night. One night no one was even speaking but we were quietly listening to a leafs game on a single phone and they showed up again...

So if you are alone or go to bed by 9pm, you may like it. If you have friends and want to have a fire in the evening, give it a pass

Close to Ottawa on the river
Jun. 2019
We use this park every year for our end of year Guide camp. The group sites are generous, flat and have both sun and shade. Nice nearby hiking trails.

I've also trailer camped here with friends and used the beach as a day visitor. The facilities are generally clean, the check in is easy and the staff are friendly.

Nice Park
Sep. 2019 • Family
Nice Park with 2 trails for hiking and 2 beaches close to Ottawa. Sites are a good size but if booking an electrical site make sure to check the distance from the trailer to the outlets.

Excellent "beach area"

Great place for a family day out. Loads of picnic tables, and BBQ facilities. Also toilet facilities. Great beach area and lake water is good for swimming. Also has children's play area.

OK but too dirty
Aug. 2018
I hadn't been here in over a decade. I came for the day beach. There was too much goose poop everywhere and we were constantly bothered by seagulls and flies. I didn't try to swim because it wasn't that hot out. Washrooms have been improved since the old days and we made use of the BBQ.

Bathrooms from this century and I'd give this Park a 5 out of 5.
Aug. 2018 • Family
Fitzroy Prov Park is located in a beautiful area with two beautiful beaches, and plenty of trails for hiking. The staff are friendly and helpful. The sites are clean and well groomed with most being large enough for a trailer and a tent. The biggest drawback is that the bathroom/showers in Two Rivers are very outdated. This is our second year camping here and nothing has changed or improved. They are circa 1970's and have had only "handy man" upgrades. All three showers are out worn out, the sinks are cracked, push faucet only stay on as long as you hold it down and both urinals have been jerry rigged. They are poorly cleaned, windows and sills not wiped, floors are given a splash of water with an old style mop, and the fans plugged with cobwebs and dirt. I've been told by other campers that the bathroom/showers in Pinegrove are very nice in comparison. We love the sites but the bathroom is a real turnoff. I saw a 9 or 10 year old boy open the door to the bathroom by placing his hand inside his t-shirt before grabbing the handle. That says it all.

Nice place for a short stay with kids
Jul. 2018 • Family
Fitzroy is nice and close to Ottawa - a big perk if you have young kids and are travelling in. It's close enough that if you need things, you can make your way into town to get things. There's a nice little beach, a playground, canoe/kayak rentals and many of the sites are nice. If you choose a site wisely (read the descriptors on each site when booking), you can actually get some pretty nice places to stay. Comfort stations were just ok... kinda dirty and gross... but it is camping after all! ;) . We've done 3 trips this summer season with one more booked for September. Our 3 year old loves it here!

Small but good
Nov. 2017
We stopped in here in November well after it had been closed for the season. We parked at the entrance where the gates were closed and walked the rest of the way into the park. it was manageable because the park is not that big. It took us past the Carp River and then on to the boat launch, where we got to see the Ottawa River. The entire visit took just over an hour and a half.
