Ottawa is the Capital of Canada. (I am sure you already know that). We are located about 5 miles from Parliament Hill. We are close to the Rideau Canal and Mooney's Bay Beach. There are many summer festivals in Ottawa and lots of museums and national historic sites to visit. We have a very long driveway that can fit our 43 foot class A motorhome and still have room for a car. We store the motorhome off site when not in use so driveway should be free. The back slides can open but the side slides may be too close to the retaining wall, depending on your rigs configuration.

Access Road Conditions

Paved road. Driveway has a slight slope but still livable


We are not going to be able to accommodate any Boondockers for the next 8 months. We are packing up the motorhome, and heading West across Canada, South down into Mexico, then who knows where. We will be happy to see our Boondocking friends on the other side of winter. We've had a wonderful time hosting, met wonderful people over the years, and been glad to have people enjoy their stay in our town, The Capital.


Ottawa, ON, Canada

Very welcoming host!

We were in Ottawa for the Canada 150 celebrations and were greeted so very well for our 2 night stay. They were generous and helpful... they even had a couple of maps handy for us! Thank you very much!

Great Stay!

Our generous hosts greeted us warmly, helped with electricity and water; gave us maps and brochures for downtown along with practical suggestions. We chatted so long, I'm sure their supper was cold. Intending on staying two nights, we actually doubled our stay to take advantage of Ottawa's 'Doors Open' event. A most enjoyable stay. Thank you so much. Hope to see you down east! Moshie

First boondocking experience

Lots of advance information for us Brits in Canada for the first time and a rented RV. There were a few shortcomings with the rental vehicle which our hosts helped us to overcome. Very welcoming and helpful. Very close to bus stops into town. Thanks for a pleasant first Boondocking experience.

The most kindness people!

It was a real pleasure to meet Grandli. We stayed only one night but we felt like home. Hoping to see them again!

Perfect hosts

We got a very warm welcome. Very friendly and opened minded hosts. Had a nice conversation with them. We felt like being at home. Had everything we needed for our 2 nights we stayed. Easily hook up to electricity and water. There is a bus driving downtown in about 20 minutes.

Great hospitality!

We stayed one night with Grandli in September 2016. Their driveway is sloped but was not a problem. Easy hook-up to electricity and water. Super friendly couple who invited us into their backyard screened area to enjoy conversation over a glass of wine. We really appreciated that they offered the use of their guest "loo."

Convenient and closest to downtown

We stayed back in July for two nights while visiting Ottawa. Hosts were accommodating and made room for us in their driveway providing electrify and water. It was raining and their driveway was just fine. Thanks for the great boondocking stay.


August 2016

Very welcoming

We had a great stay in Ottawa, and appreciated our welcome. Thank you for hosting us, even when you had guests! We enjoyed our conversations, and your welcoming nature and flexibility. We hope to see you on the west coast some time!

Perfect Hosts

They are very accommodating, very open personalities. recommend highly, very close to the transit bus routes to downtown. The closest one could expect, with a wonderful dog park very close. Great advice for all trips around and in the city. Garden is great for sharing when in season, and easy to trade stories of ours and theirs RV travels and Blunders. Haha. We have a 36 ft motor-home and lots of room. we stay a few nights in June 2016, and they responded very quickly. less than 48 hours.

generous and helpful

Very helpful hosts and very generous. Sharing more than just their driveway but also their beautiful garden and advice. We were only there a day and were sightseeing most of that but they were very gracious hosts when we saw them. Thank you very much

Great hosts

Lisa and Andrew are great hosts. Very helpful and accommodating. Their site is very close to downtown Ottawa and Ottawa is a great place to visit.

If you find yourself in Ottawa...

We were very fortunate to spend a night with Lisa and Andrew on our epic road trip across Canada. Andrew and Lisa are a wonderful couple and took very good care of us. Wanting to ride our bikes on the Rideau Canal, their house is about 5 minutes from the Rideau River and onwards to the canal. We hope to visit again.

Great Spot

We stayed a couple of nights with Lisa and Andrew - lovely hosts and a great place from which to explore Ottawa by public transport.


June 2014

A first class stay!

This is a very nice spot in a central location in Ottawa. Easy access to downtown by bus. The hosts are charming, interesting and very accommodating. They helped me with problems I had with my new Roadtrek, invited me into their garden and home, shared RVing stories (and photos),and generally provided me with a delightful first experience at a Boondockers Welcome site, for which I am most grateful. Highly recommended!
