NEWBORO LOCKSTATION Newboro Lockstation sits at the southern end of Upper Rideau Lake, the summit of the Rideau Canal, and leads to Newboro Lake, the first of a number of lakes and rivers making up the Cataraqui Watershed. The Canal follows this chain to its southern terminus: Lake Ontario. The geology of the lockstation is quite different from the sites between Kingston and Chaffeys, which are part of the Frontenac Axis, an extension of the rugged Canadian Shield. The flat terrain at Newboro is part of the Smiths Falls Limestone Plain. Lockstation services: parking, charts and permit sales, on-site identification, picnic areas, day use docking, boater camping and overnight mooring. Swimming, fishing and boat watching are here.
