Construction of the Bobcaygeon lockstation

Lock 32, built more than 160 years ago, was the first lock constructed on the Waterway. Located in the heart of Bobcaygeon, boaters can find a variety of facilities and services nearby. Its prime location makes this lock one of the busiest ones along the Trent-Severn Waterway. Overnight mooring is available above and below the lock.
