“Scenic & Historic”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Always like a nice country drive to the historic locks! Great view, can see them operating in the summer! Great place to stop, walk around, and even take a picnic! Close to the City and worthwhile seeing!

“UNESCO World Heritage Site”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Summer mornings, you will find people fishing, silently nodding and smiling.
Summer evenings, walkers and cyclists take over.
On long winter nights, dog walkers know that the stars are fabulous up here.

This location is significant to the history of the world. The Rideau Canal System and Locks are an utterly astonishing, incredibly durable feat of engineering. Come see it up close!

“Great bass fishing”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Watch the lockmaster operate the locks by hand and let boats of all sizes come through on their way north along the Rideau Canal. The historic blockhouse is open. You can go inside and see how soldiers who were stationed there lived during the war of 1812. Picnic area ans Rideau canal museum.

Kingston Mills is a gorgeous place.... perfect for portraits with family or a wedding party. It is also a great spot for an afternoon picnic.
