Situated on Otty Lake the swimming is excellent as the beach gradually slopes to deeper water.




ENJOY CANOEING

Start at the Camp and paddle down Otty Lake to Jebbs creek, portage a couple of beaver dams and then on to the Tay River system that will take you to Christie Lake or the Rideau system.

HIKING

As an added attraction the Rideau Trail system runs past the camp gate, combine this with the trails on the camp property and adjacent Rideau Valley Conservation MICA mines and you have an excellent chance to test your hiking skills.
