Gravel beach at Presqu'isle on the Quebec shore of the Ottawa River upstream from Point Alexander.

A note for local paddlers: A little upstream of this location, a portage has been cut and flagged into Turtle Lake. It is about 300m long and flat. It starts on the Ottawa River at the little sand beach just outside of Upper Presqu'isle Bay. I walked the portage to check it out and arrived at Turtle Lake just in time to see an osprey take a fish. I got a couple of pics, but unfortunately none is good enough to post.
