Location is our home set on six acres in a rural area. Our long paved driveway leads to our house which is about 300 feet back from the main road.
No generators running after 11 pm or before 9 am please
Paved main road (regional road so it is well travelled) and paved driveway. Road is busy at times but RV parking (and our home) is well back from road (about 300 ft). Traffic is quieter on weekends and very quiet overnight. There are no immediate residential neighbours (other than us as this is our home). Turnaround area has large evergreen trees with some low-hanging branches. For our 17 foot travel trailer, these are not a problem.
Ample parking for tow vehicle either connected or not to your trailer.

Shopping (groceries, supplies, etc.) is about 10-15 minutes away. Downtown Ottawa is about 25 minutes (Parliament Hill, Rideau Centre, National Arts Centre, National Art Gallery, etc.). Canadian Tire Centre is 10-15 minutes. Wesley Clover Equestrian Park is 15-20 minutes. Diefenbunker about 5 minutes.
Wayne and Donna are two enterprising business people who are willing to make space and time available for a Boondocker. They camp in a small tear drop trailer when they are not working on their cottage or maintaining their spacious rural setting property. I do not know where they get the energy, but they are certainly generous with their time. Throughout our stay they would occasionally check in and make sure we had everything we needed. We felt exceptionally safe and well taken care of. Power and water were always available. The boondocking site is 35 min. from downtown Ottawa, making it very easy to commute to wherever you are going as a tourist in the National Capital Region.
Great Hosts and a great place to stay. We are so thankful for the hospitality. We stayed for three nights the first two nights while the hosts were away. Glad that we met them on the last afternoon and enjoyed socializing in our trailer in the evening. Very convenient for visiting Ottawa, nice location.
Ok, don’t take that wrong, I mean it was great of them to offer to host us while they were away. Add to that that they already had guests coming! The place was great, easy to find and bonus: no mosquitos! Thanks so much for really extending your hospitality.
Our stay at donnatravelling was excellent. We enjoyed a quiet night of sleep before leaving in the morning. Everything was as described in their message. Thank you very much
They were very accommodating even though we gave them short notice. Very peaceful and quiet even though their driveway is right off the main road.
Lovely location in the country with an easy drive into Ottawa. The road in front is busy but the noise was hardly noticeable. It is always fun to meet a fellow boondocker who has the type of camper you have admired from afar. Chatting with our hosts was like talking to a long time neighbor over the fence at home. We hardly touched on the things to do in Ottawa so we will be back to this nice location.
Thanks for hosting the one night, it was greatly appreciated. Hope I can reciprocate on your visit here.
Thank you for letting us stay at your house for 2 nights. We would like to have seen you may be next time.
Hope you had time at the Park.
