Experience country in the city at the Wesley Clover Parks Campground, conveniently located between the Moodie Drive and March Road exits off the 417 Highway, at 411 Corkstown Road. The Wesley Clover Parks Campground was established in 2014 when the Wesley Clover Foundation took over operations of the former Ottawa Municipal Campground. Here you can enjoy the great outdoors just minutes from national capital attractions. With a natural tree-filled setting, fully serviced sites for tent, trailer and RV camping, and premium cedar cabins, it’s a beautiful urban getaway.
2017 marked the 50th anniversary of camping activities at 411 Corkstown! Learn more about booking a vacation or staycation here.
Wesley Clover Parks is conveniently located in Ottawa’s west-end, situated between Kanata and Ottawa. Both sites can be accessed from either the Moodie Drive or March Road exits, just west of the junction of 416 and 417 highways.

Winter time means some of the best cross-country skiing and snowshoeing that the National Capital Region has to offer. The Kanata Nordic Ski Club calls Wesley Clover Parks home and takes full advantage of the natural beauty our site has to offer, skiers can enjoy a growing network of over 18km of trails for classic and skate-skiing. Everyone is welcome to get out these winter activities, the public can buy a ski or snowshoe day pass and Kanata Nordic members receive a season trail pass as part of their membership allowing them ski the trails as often as they like throughout the season.
To find out more about becoming a member and programming available with the Kanata Nordic Ski Club visit kanatanordic.ca.
Kanata Nordic also shares the trails with Mush Larose skijorers a few times a week. Skijoring is a combination of cross country skiing and dog sledding, learn more about the sport and Mush Larose at mushlarose.ca

7 days a week when the trails are open / Ensure your vehicle is out by 9:55pm
NOTE: During the Magic of Lights event the gate at 411 Corkstown will close to skiers and snowshoers at 3:30pm. Any cars still in the parking lot at 3:30pm will be locked in for the night. DO NOT SKI ON OR NEAR THE LIGHT DISPLAYS OR THEIR ELECTRICAL CORDS.
Please respect the trails, which means no fat-biking, bicycling, walking, and no snowshoeing on groomed ski trails. Dogs are not permitted on any trails.
We share the facility with the Forest and Nature School, which operates year-round and is located north of the campground area. Classes are run largely outdoors, so please help the school maintain its privacy and security by staying clear of their access road, structures (including their porta-potty), and activities.
Please also respect the other Wesley Clover Parks partners doing outdoor activities in the area so we can all enjoy Ottawa winters in our own ways.
