Welcome To Riverside! 

your gay destination  



Riverside, Ontario's newest summer destination serving the gay male community, is celebrating its 10th season this year!


We are a private, members only gay campground & safe space for adult men. Our beautiful 96-acre wooded campground in the Land O'Lake region of eastern Ontario is located halfway between Ottawa and Toronto.


Our gay campground & RV park is situated on 96 beautiful and wooded acres, and is conveniently located halfway between Ottawa and Toronto in the Land O' Lakes region of eastern Ontario. Riverside offers over 2400 feet of waterfront on the Skootamatta River, in addition to 110 tent and RV sites (some of which are river-view). All of our sites are large, private, and well treed, and campsites are available by the day, week or month. We also offer a beautiful, heated and completely private in-ground pool, numerous theme weekends throughout the summer, Saturday night dances most weekends, a Pavillion and Courtyard entertainment area and more.


We have rental accommodations too! Our comfortable and very spacious 2 bedroom Waterfront Cottage is located right on the Skootamatta River, and our 24' Trailer is conveniently located in the center of the park. Both our rentals are fully equipped with private bathroom & shower facilities, kitchens, microwaves & coffee makers. We also have three "bunkie" cabins, which are the perfect alternative to a tent site.  Our bunkies each have a comfortable sofa bed with a double mattress, ceiling fans, lots of windows, a seating area with coffee station, and a fire ring and picnic table.  Pictures of our rentals can be found on our Amenities page.


Riverside is easily accessible from highways 401, 37 & 7. For inquiries or reservations, please contact us by calling (613) 478-2229 or e-mail us. You can also fill out our secure online inquiry form and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. More information on our rates & reservation policies can be found here.

Come and join us for the day, the week, the month or the season!
