Sleep beneath the stars and awaken to bird calls when you spend the night at one of the historic Trent-Severn Waterway locks, enjoying a classic Canadian backcountry setting with the facilities of a well-serviced camp site.

Thirty-eight lockstations - all except Hastings, Scotts Mills, the Peterborough Lift Lock, and Bolsover - offer camping to boaters and all land-based visitors for a low fee. (Boaters paying for overnight mooring camp for free).

Each lock is unique and staff are happy to share the history.
