Need to get away from the humdrum of urban life? Here’s a handy map of campgrounds in and around Ottawa.

Pictured above is the sign at the entrance of the former Ottawa Municipal Campground, one of the most centrally located campsites around, right between Kanata and Bayshore in the Greenbelt. Now it’s called Wesley Clover Parks.
