Beaches/ Lakes Ottawa area?


Recommended Posts

Hey all. Since being in Ottawa I haven't been to any beaches or lakes at all. Being from the east I miss my salty sandy playground, and I don't think anything will compare around here, but if any of you have suggestions of clean, fairly secluded places to go swimming around Ottawa, no more than an hour or so away, it would be much appreciated. Matt and I are heading to spend a day on the water tomorrow if anyone would like to join us.

Thanks and happy sunshiny weekend to you :)

Gatineau's Lac Leamy isn't really all that great, but it is across from the casino (good for fireworks tonight if they have it open) and in a nice park. The Gatineau park sports shit loads of lakes. I believe there's a popular nudie beach somewhere (thanks Ottawa Sun). Along the Ottawa River on the Gatineau side, there is a sweet little beech spot about 1 km east of the Westboro bridge.
