The Township of Greater Madawaska

Calabogie to Burnstown

<b>Canoe, Madawaska River</b><b>Madawaska River</b>

At Calabogie the Madawaska River continues downstream past the hamlets of Springtown and Burnstown before joining the Ottawa River at Arnprior.  A popular day trip along this picturesque section of the Madawaska is the 13 km. paddle downstream from Calabogie to Burnstown.  Launch your canoe or kayak at the picnic area 3 km. east of Calabogie on the Calabogie Rd./#508. Because you will be travelling with the current it’s not a strenuous paddle. 1 km. after passing the Burnstown bridge look for Burnstown Beach, a public beach area on your left, where your journey ends. For this outing it is recommended that a vehicle shuttle be used. Leaving a vehicle at the Burnstown Beach before starting your river trip eliminates the need of having to paddle back upstream to your starting point.
