Fitzroy Provincial Park is a provincial park on the Ottawa River, Ontario designated as recreational-class by Ontario Parks. Majestic white pine covers much of this park beside the Ottawa River. The park features century-old trees and a stand of 300-year-old bur oaks by the Carp River while shale terraces and pillars reveal a glacial past and an even mightier waterway. There are two campgrounds within the park both with comfort stations, a boat launch and park store. The main campgrounds offer 235 treed and private campsites, 107 with electrical service, and 205 with room for trailers. A separate area features facilities for group camping and picnicking.
