Camping & Accommodation
Fitzroy has over 200 campsites in two campgrounds; Pine Grove and Two Rivers. Waterfront campsites are available on the Carp and Ottawa Rivers which bisect the park. Some electrical sites are available in each campground. Amenities such as water taps, comfort stations and laundry facilities are located centrally in each campground. Two Rivers Campground has a small beach which is great for families with small children.
Fitzroy has six large group campsites that can accommodate 50 to 100 visitors, depending on equipment. These sites are ideal for youth groups and families. Vault toilets and water taps are located throughout this area.
Reservations can be made online or by phone.

Carp Trail, 1 km, easy

This trail takes visitors along a geological journey. See shale pillars that stand as testaments to the erosive power of water and fields that are strewn with erratics – massive boulders left by glaciers.
This park doesn’t have any dedicated trails for bikes
