Port Carling Locks Reopening

The Port Carling large locks will be open for vessel passage beginning Saturday, May 23, 2020.

  • large lock remains available during operating hours only
  • cashless payments only – credit/debit (tap) available
  • boaters are asked to stay inside their vessel at all times – physical distancing enforced
  • Lock Street, James Bartleman Park and public washroom facilities remain closed until further notice
