Tour/day trip(s) to Ontario Parks near Ottawa

Non-car owner, looking to do 1 or 2 day trips/ maybe camp overnight Labour Day weekend from Ottawa to Ontario Parks (Rideau River +/or Fitzroy). Canoe, swim, hike in parks. Looking for some peace, quiet outdoors + like-minded company. Like to bike? 🙂

I’m a serious road bicyclist and swimmer who loves being outdoors. Because I don’t have a car, I don’t often get to go very far afield unless it’s an overnighter. Rideau River Park could definitely be a day trip. It’s also near Kemptville though so it could be a 2-day trip. I’m definitely open to discussing the various options here. The dates have to be Labour Day weekend but could be one day, over night, or two day-trips.

Mostly looking for increased safety, company, riding down to the park. But if you prefer one activity over another once we’re there, that’s no problem.
