According to archaeological evidence, visitors have been landing on the beach at Bonnechere for thousands of years. "It was an ideal place to take shelter centuries ago, and it's the perfect place to visit today," notes park interpreter Luke Dickerson.
Bonnechere Provincial Park sits at the mouth of the Little Bonnechere River, where it opens into Round Lake. From the expansive sandy beach and shoreline boardwalk, the park stretches inland across 162 hectares of forest and wetland, encompassing 128 campsites, rustic cabins, hiking trails and interpretive areas.
Established in 1967, Canada's centennial year, Bonnechere Park attracts campers and day-use visitors who come to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the shaded campsites and beach area. The Little Bonnechere, which follows a winding path of oxbows, is perfect for canoeing and wildlife viewing. The woodland hiking trails are geared for outdoor exploration and physical activity for the whole family.
Bonnechere Park is also a destination for families interested in discovering the rich cultural heritage of the Ottawa Valley. The Depot, a stopping place on the McNaughton Trail featuring two restored park ranger cabins, is the site of school programs, Spirit Nights and storytelling. At the Davenport Centre (below), visitors can view natural and cultural exhibits, and participate in various interpretive programs and watch live entertainment.
