Urban Camping Packages Now On Sale


This week, three and five night Urban Camping packages went on sale for the Canada Day long weekend.


This Canada Day, visitors from across Canada and around the world will arrive in the Nation’s Capital to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. In order to create extra accommodation space to allow as many people as possible to enjoy the Canada Day festivities, Ottawa is offering a unique short-term Urban Camping experience in select City parking lots and green spaces for tents and RVs as a family-friendly option for accommodations.


Visitors can book a spot to park a camper or pitch a tent from June 29 to July 4. There are many locations to choose from across Ottawa, where campers will have access to washrooms, showers and other site amenities. Starting today, both Voyageur (five-night) and Portage (three-night) packages are available for purchase.
