Deep River, Ontario on the Trans-Canada Highway

This 4,000 resident community is nestled in the woodlands of the Upper Ottawa Valley, just north of Chalk River. The town has sandy beaches on the River, and over 200 km of cross-country ski trails and gliderport.

In 1686, Chevalier de Royes named the 70 km stretch of the Ottawa River riviere creuse, which was translated a century later as Deep River. The River is over 75 metres deep at its deepest point a few km downriver from the town. This town was created in 1944 as a residence for thoe families of scientists and staff at the Chalk River Nuclear Laboratories.
