Description & Services

Located just seconds off the 103 this is the perfect stopping point on a journey down the south shore, it is one of the gate ways to Lockeport Loop, and its intrinsic beauty is representative of the entire area. 
For those wanting to explore a unique river with a unique past this is the perfect launching point. The suspension bridge is a favorite with kids. The quiet and undisturbed river banks are a haven to the local wildlife, with deer, ducks and small turtles being regular sightings nestled among the shoreline. 
For the devoted paddlers, heading towards the mouth of the river will eventually bring you to the Atlantic ocean, and a 2 mile long white sand beach known as Louis Head. The beach can be reached by road, but there is something magical about viewing it for the first time from the water.
