Voyageur Provincial Park is a park located in eastern Ontario, Canada, opposite the once furious Long Sault rapids of the Ottawa River around which voyageurs portaged on their way upstream.[1] Established in 1966, this park was formerly known as Carillon Provincial Park.[2]

The park has 416 campsites, 110 with electrical service. Group camping is also available. The park has a day-use area and comfort stations for campers. There are two hiking trails—Coureur de Bois Trail (2 km, 1 hour) and Outouais Trail (5 km return)—both rated easy.[1]

In the winter, cross-country ski trails are available.[3]
