Bring a lunch, maybe something to grill, and a camera. This place is beautiful and serene with places to sit and enjoy the sights. There are picnic table steps from the gates. The gates are all wood and operated manually by a team of hard working chain crankers. They really hustle. While you're here, strike up a conversation with some of the boat owners passing through. My only regret is that I didn't have my fishing gear with me.

The grandchildren really enjoyed following the boats through the multiple locks. The Parks Canada staff were very informative and even let the kids help with the locks. We saw mink and turtles.

This place is absolutely stunning. We watched while the locks were operated which was fascinating to see. The locks are still operated manually and the operators are very friendly and enjoy talking to visitors. We had our dog with us and the surrounding area is a mecca for wildflowers. Our dog loved this place as much as we did - we were on our way to Ottawa or we could have stayed for a relaxing picnic. If you are visiting in the summer (or warm day) bring a picnic or some wine and sit at one of many picnic tables and enjoy the flowers and sound of rushing water!

This place is very beautiful, great for picnics. The only problem is that I did find a car in the water a few summers ago... but I guess thats settled out now.
