Paddler Take Out

Overnighter Camping and Take Out

When looking for a the best place to camp on the Ottawa River, River Run has you covered.  Our nightly rates include access to change rooms and showers.

Spend the night in one of our beautiful campgrounds, there are five to choose from. Includes take-out/access fees.

Your fees help us to preserve the last wild section of Canada’s most historical river. Our passion for this river goes back decades. We scouted the river by air with local pilot Del O’Brien in 1973 and then made the first raft descent in ’74 and opened for business in ’75.  Since then we have protected almost 5,000 acres on both sides of the river. Equally important, we not only work here but live here year-round, publish the local newspaper, provide rescue/fire services and contribute to the local economy by supporting over 20 local families. Our partnership with Algonquin College contributes greatly to paddle sports.
