Paddle or motor through the Rideau Canal National Historic Site’s historic lock system for a day or a week. Swim sandy beaches, go fishing for a mighty Muskie or a tasty Bass and Walleye, watch for wildlife, and camp at lockstations run by the friendly Parks Canada staff.
Boaters, cyclists and hikers can pitch a tent amidst the history of the Rideau Canal’s lockstations, enjoying a unique camping experience with the comforts of a well serviced campsite.
Visitors can also stay in one of Parks Canada’s oTENTIks. A cross between a rustic cabin and a tent, the Parks Canada oTENTik is a relaxing, easier way to experience camping. Located at Upper Nicholsons Lockstation, Beveridges Lockstation, and Upper Brewers Lockstation, the oTENTik accommodations provide an ideal base camp for exploring historic canals in Ontario.
