Ottawa River

Launching from your accommodation at Mattawa Adventure Camp or the Town of Mattawa's Marina, you have access to over 100km of charted, navigable water winding its way through the spectacular pine covered hills of the Upper Ottawa Valley. Beautiful 100km of river, breath taking scenery, a full service marina, waterfront dinning and accommodations, and nearby shops and museums make this trip a boaters paradise. Explore rocky shorelines, sandy beaches and secluded bays, which appear today as they did four hundred years ago when the first European explorers came to the area. This untouched section of river has excellent Walleye, Pike and Bass fishing, and don't be surprised if you go for hours without seeing another boat.
