Camping and accommodation
Sleep surrounded by history and nature
Sleep beneath the stars and awaken to bird calls when you spend the night at one of the historic Rideau Canal lockstations, enjoying a classic Canadian backcountry setting with the facilities of a well-serviced camp site.
24 lock stations, except Ottawa Locks, Hogs Back, Smiths Falls Combined, Old Slys, & Brass Point Bridge offer camping to boaters & land-based visitors (boaters paying for overnight mooring camp for free).
Each is unique and staff is happy to share the history and 19th century technology that has them hand-operating the locks much as they were during their first days in 1832.
