River Run Resort is located 1 hour from Ottawa and 5 hours east of Toronto in the Ottawa Valley.  The “Valley” as it’s called by the locals stretches from Ottawa, our Canadian capital city, westward to Ontario’s world-renowned Algonquin Park. More than half the valley (over 6 million acres) is spectacular wilderness and the setting for your visit to River Run on the Ottawa River.
