Lock 37 is one of the deepest fully manual stations on the Waterway. There are two walls designated on the upper side for mooring and a popular wing wall by the dam. Lock 37 has a quiet rural setting with ample grounds for boater camping.

Reconstruction of the Dam at Lock 37 - Bolsover

Parks Canada Investing in Dam Safety

The Dam at Lock 37 - Bolsover was built in 1902-1903 and was identified for reconstruction as part of the ongoing asset monitoring and recapitalization programme on the Trent-Severn Waterway.

Public Safety is Important!
Navigation will continue. However, this is a construction zone.

For your safety during the construction:
  • Overnight mooring will not be allowed.
  • Do not exit your vessel on the upstream side of the lock.
  • Be careful when boating near the lock station and dam.
The project will take approximately 2 years and is scheduled to be completed in late fall 2014.

The Canadian government is committed to the future sustainability of the historic canals and the communities along them.
