Rideau Heights Campsite is located right in Ottawa. The campground is relatively small however, they manage to put a lot of people in it. They take cash only and it appears it is first come first serve as we called ahead and thought we reserved a space, however, upon arrival they gave it away. The management gave no reason and therefore I will never return.
We have used this campsite before. It is very clean, and the staff are very friendly. They are also bilingual. It is very close to Montreal but far enough out to ensure we do not hear the traffic. It hase over 400 sites but it is well spreadout. There are various activities and he pool is heated. Overall it is a very good and affordable campsite.
