CLOWES LOCKSTATION Clowes lockstation is located about 2 1/2 miles downstream from Merrickville. Clowes' quarry supplied stone for the construction of the locks, dams and weirs at Merrickville, Clowes and Nicholsons. James Clowes also had the contract for construction at the lockstation, but Colonel By, less pleased with this work than he was with Clowes' quarried stone, terminated his contract and replaced him with Alexander Hayes, who completed the work. 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.
