All boaters and land-based visitors are welcome to camp at most lockstations on the Rideau Canal (see list below for exceptions).
Cost is $4.90 per person. Space is allocated by the Lockmaster on a first come, first serve basis and capacity at the station is at the discretion of the Lockmaster.
Camping is not permitted at Bridge Stations due to a lack of public space and facilities.
Large organized cycling and hiking groups (6+) should communicate their camping requirements to Parks in advance by contacting RideauCanalfirstname.lastname@example.org.
