Our Story

View at Deacon Escarpment


The motivation behind the creation of this business came from a desire to share our love of the outdoors and the benefits of that connection with you. Our goal is to provide a private place for you to relax and reconnect with nature and the people with you. A quiet place with rural hospitality, woods, wetlands, lakes and wildlife just waiting to be discovered. 


Fresh snowfall at Deacon Escarpment


We want you to experience the beauty of the Ottawa Valley in ALL the seasons from the top of the Deacon Escarpment...

 -- a unique elevated geographic area with rocky outcrops, oak savannah forest, pines, ponds and stunning views of Golden Lake in the Bonnechere Valley below.

Nature is truly breathtaking all year round, so naturally, we are open all year long so that you can hike or snowshoe, canoe or ice fish, tent camp or winter camp. 

While you stay with us you can witness all the seasonal changes from your private location and along the trails: the brightness of the valley in bud, wonderous green, fall blaze to glistening white. Whatever you choose...our cabins and campsites were created to give you your own private spot to take it all in. 



Your experience is important to us. 

We offer a variety of packages to provide you with the option of traveling light and making your camping vacation suited to you...

Every guided ATV tour offers something new and exciting. You will create memories and friendships that will last a life time!  We keep our groups small to ensure a more personal experience for everyone.  Book Today and Get Away From It All.

Tite-Lines Guiding Service Mavric Parks

     Hello my name is Mavric Parks.  I grew up with a passion for fishing and have decided to share that passion and years of experience with others. Over the years I have developed a great sense of appreciation and gratitude from helping fellow fisherman and women land incredible fish, which has motivated me to open my own guiding service.

     For my entire life I have grown up on these local waters targeting multiple species such as  Musky, Walleye, Northern Pike, Largemouth & Smallmouth, Crappie, Trout and perch. All these species can be located and caught around this local area. With Tite-Lines Guiding Service I can assure you a positive time on the water. I will supply equipment and direction with style, techniques, and locating and catching these unique species and possibly a fish of a lifetime. The Ottawa Valley has some of the best lakes in all of Eastern Ontario if you know which body of water to go to and which spots to hit when on these beautiful Canadian waters. 

 Visit my instagram or facebook page to see some of my previous trips and guides.
