The Township of Greater MadawaskaLocated in the south-eastern end of Renfrew County, the Township of Greater Madawaska is one of the largest Townships. Significant Crown owed lands afford visitors and residents alike hundreds of excellent fishing lakes and thousands of acres for outdoor activities all year long.

We are a tourism area with recreation facilities for everyone! Most facilities are privately owned such as Calabogie Peaks Four Seasons Resort boasting one of Eastern Ontario's largest vertical drop ski hills; a 27-hole golf course at Calabogie Highlands, located in Barryvale, along with time-share units; a large time-share resort at Calabogie Lodge, located, on Calabogie Lake, complete with indoor pool and tennis courts.

We have Bed & Breakfast facilities, fine restaurants, and two mini-putt courses. Located twenty minutes west of the Highway 417 corridor, the major transportation route through the Ottawa Valley, the Township is a four season recreation playground with something for everyone to do and enjoy!

Come Join Us Anytime of the Year!
