Hunters and Anglers come to Bonnechere Valley for a consistently good catch, our pristine environment and hospitality that is second to none.

Avid Anglers will love our lakes and rivers. You can expect fantastic fishing for Pike, Bass, Perch, Walleye, Lake and Brook Trout.  Live bait is readily available and there is no shortage of boat rentals, campgrounds, and secret fishing spots to guarantee some of the best fishing in the Ottawa Valley.

The Eganville Tourist Information Centre, located at 46 Bonnechere Street West, can give you advice and directions to the various lakes and accomodations in Bonnechere Valley. Call us at 613-628-1594.

The area is famous during Hunting Season. There are yearly regulated harvests of White Tailed Deer, Moose and Migrating Water fowl.

Crown Land is generally open to hunting, but subject to the Ontario Game and Fish act. Hunters must obtain permission from landowners before venturing onto private land.

Recreational Geology

In October 2012 the 1st ever municipally owned Recreational Geology Trail opened.  It is a Geologically rich trail in the heart of the Bonnechere Valley, leading to a limestone quarry and a hand-dug trench!

The Township of Bonnechere Valley in partnership with the Bonnechere Museum are happy to offer this local trail for recreational and educational use.  Admire Eganville’s unique natural beauty as you walk through a hillside forest and past rock walls where geological treasures are abundant.


Our Township believes in the future. Quailty education is a big part of that future.  Take a look at our facilities: Eganville & District Public School Contact: Box 787 Eganville, Ontario K0J 1T0 Phone:...
