Canada's capital, Ottawa, is a charming road trip destination with world-class festivals, stunning parks, and friendly locals. Whether you chow down on BeaverTails, plan a romantic day out at the world’s largest natural ice rink, or take in vistas across the Ottawa River from Parliament Hill — Ottawa is sure to impress even the fussiest member of your crew. Ottawa is also part of Canada's bilingual belt, so brush up on your French before taking a trip.
The best time to visit Bytown is in the spring when the temperatures are on the rise, and you don’t have to deal with crowds of tourists. Ottawa hosts festivals year-round, and during the spring, you catch the Ottawa International Children's Festival and the Ottawa Marathon. Qu’est-ce que vous attendez?

Before heading to Ottawa's top attractions, you might be worried about driving your big rig through the Canadian capital. Despite having a population of around 1 million people, Ottawa isn't very congested, and traffic is generally better than it is in other big cities like Toronto and Montreal. Ottawa also has an excellent public transport system and over 170 kilometres (105 miles) of bicycle lanes. The best places to park an RV rental in Ottawa are at the Rideau Carleton Raceway or a nearby Walmart.
You won't want to miss out on visiting the Rideau Canal during your stay in Ottawa. Ontario's only UNESCO World Heritage Site, Rideau Canal, is the oldest continuously operating canal in North America. During the summer, plan a bike ride along the canal or rent a kayak and take in the sights. In the winter, Rideau Canal is transformed into the world's largest natural ice-skating rink and is a must for any avid ice skater...
Lush forests surround Ottawa, meaning you won't have any trouble finding somewhere peaceful to park up. One of the best RV parks in Ottawa is Wesley Clover Parks Campground. This campground is also among the most convenient, located just 14 kilometres (8.5 miles) from downtown. Each wooded site comes with water and 20/30/50-amp electrical hookups. Pets are allowed, and amenities around camp include a dump station, free Wi-Fi, and a laundromat. Due to the camp's rural location, it's great for outdoor activities like hiking, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing.
Another popular and convenient RV campground in Ottawa is Camp Hither Hills. Like Wesley Clover Parks Campground, Camp Hither Hills is surrounded by woodlands less than 20 kilometres (12.5 miles) from Bytown. Sites come with full hookups and 30- and 50-amp electricity. Camp Hither Hills is pet friendly, and there's an on-site dog park...
