Stuck in a rut?  

For fun, let's compare some popular things to do around Ottawa vs. the same or similar activities at White Lake.  White Lake is extremely clean, most access is completely free, nature abounds, and it is only a short car ride away.  This web-guide will outline how to have as much, if not more fun than the same things you've come to know and love doing already, including:

Dows Lake canoe or paddle boating
This fun activity is great, while a little expensive by the hour, and the water is not clean enough to swim in.  Forget about seeing loons or doing a little fishing at the same time.

Gatineau Park Hike or Bike , Meech Lake Swim, Picnic or Kayak
One of the greatest assets close to the Ottawa area, and most trails are free to park and use.  Access to lake activity is limited, and motor boats are not permitted.  Parking can sometimes be difficult to find.

Lac Phillipe
Great park, lots to see and do.  Also some NCC rules and fees.  Great facilities and an easy drive from Ottawa if there is availability.  Book online in advance for camping or get up very early to secure the few un-bookable spots each weekend.

Petrie Island/Moonies Bay/Britannia Bay Beaches

Nice inner-city beaches, however water is somewhat polluted, and swimming is risky.  A limited amount of free and paid parking spots are available.


Growing up in White Lake in the Fifties by Sandra (Cameron) McLachlin,
White Lake: The Later Years

White Lake attracted many tourists
They came from far and wide.
And Bunnie Yuill knew where the best fishing was
He was know to be a very good guide.

To the kinds their impression was, tourists were rich.
To travel here from some distant place
And we couldn't understand why anyone would come,
To such a small and out of the way place.

But as I've grown older I now understand
Bigger doesn't mean better every time.
And a quiet little spot by a lovely little lake
Is a wonderful way to spend your time.
