2013 Scheduled Lockage
The 2013 season will offer a mobile crew service at the following locations. This service will begin at the beginning of each day. The mobile crew will complete as many lockages as possible within the scheduled hours of operation. Boaters can contact mobile crew staff by telephone upon their on-site arrival to seek the next estimated lockage time.
MULTIPLE LOCK STATION GROUPINGS ARE AS FOLLOWS
Mooring and camping space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Possession of a valid mooring permit is necessary to moor a vessel overnight at a lock station or bridge station but does not guarantee a docking space.
Mooring periods vary at different lock stations and bridge stations. Boaters may tie up at locks 1 through 18 for 5 days, but may stay only one night at locks 28, 30, 31, 34, and 42. At all other lock stations, Murray Canal swing bridges and Bridge #50, boaters may stay for 2 nights (48 hrs.).
Blue lines are often used for additional mooring spaces following the day's last lockage. However, boaters must move their vessels off the blue line before the lock opens the next day.
Rafting of vessels is only permitted at lock and bridge stations from the close of navigation for the day to opening the next morning. Boaters on the wall are not required to accept rafting. Rafted vessels are charged the same mooring fee as vessels on the wall.
Vessels having reached the maximum length of stay cannot return to the same wharf or wall for 48 hours, unless directed otherwise by lock staff.
Camping at lock stations is primarily for boaters and is not available to land-based users with tents or self-contained motor vehicles. Cyclists and trail hikers may camp at selected lock stations provided a camping permit is purchased.
Vessels towing a boat (aluminum, fiberglass, rubber dingy or personal watercraft) regardless of size, with or without an engine, will require a lockage permit for the towed craft. A mooring permit for a towed vessel is also a requirement.
Vessels 12ft and under are charged a 12ft minimum rate for all permits.
Payment may be made by cash, by personal cheque with proper identification or with Visa/Mastercard.
Permits are valid only during the year of issue and are not transferable or refundable.
Seasonal lockage, mooring or transit decals must be affixed to the vessel. Other permits must be available for verification or validation by lock staff.
Seasonal overnight mooring permits are also valid for use at St. Lawrence Islands National Park, Georgian Bay Islands National Park and Fathom Five Marine Park (boaters using a campsite must also pay a camping fee).
