Welcome to Petawawa!

Nestled in the beauty of the Ottawa Valley, where the Petawawa River joins the mighty Ottawa River, lies the friendly and DYNAMIC Town of Petawawa. Founded on the strength of its natural resources and strategic military role, Petawawa residents today realize the benefits of working and playing in a region so abundant in natural splendor.

Enjoy Petawawa’s outdoor adventure playground:

There is a never ending supply of water based adventure in Petawawa, canoe, kayak, SUP and various other water activities; dock service at the Town beach or Jubilee Lodge Marina.  Pristine beaches and a variety of camping facilities are available within the Town and County. Reel in the catch of the day; catfish, trout, perch, bass, walleye, pike and pickerel are some local favorites and can be found in our many lakes, rivers and streams.
