Tourism In and Around the Whitewater Region


Situated along the magnificent Ottawa River and the Trans Canada Highway, the Township of Whitewater Region is a four-season playground offering recreational activities for everyone.

Referred to as the Whitewater Capital of Canada, the Region is named for its many world-class whitewater facilities.  Many tourism operators also offer a variety of paddle sports as well as land activities including hiking, cycling and wildlife trails.  With more than 160 kilometres of waterfront and home of the famous Muskrat Lake, superior fishing for pickerel, bass and pike, to name just a few, can be found.  Enjoy the public beaches and municipal park or visit the local Farmer’s Market and museum. 

Along with the arrival of autumn comes several local community Fall Fairs and Rural Ramble, a self-guided driving tour of local attractions throughout the County of Renfrew, including numerous stops within Whitewater Region.  Get your camera ready - don’t miss viewing the vibrant colours of the autumn leaves from high atop the Scenic Lookout.

As the snow gently falls, Whitewater Region is transformed into a winter wonderland offering miles of groomed snowmobile trails, ice fishing, skating and winter carnivals.
