UUMMT #37: Campbellford, Trent Waterway

July 14, 2017 - July 16, 2017

Let’s celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday by being part of the Trent Hills Chamber of Commerce’s boat parade from Campbellford to Hastings. There is a full weekend of events. Lock fees are complimentary. Decorate your Dippy and crew in red and white and join the parade.

Friday, July 14th we are invited to a welcome reception with dinner and entertainment at the Campbellford and District Curling and Racquet Club in Campbellford at 5:30 PM. On Saturday morning start your day with a free breakfast at Campbellford’s Old Mill Park provided by the Campbellford Rotary Cub at 7:30 AM. Then launch your boat on the Trent Severn Waterway at the south side of Campbellford near the Ranney Falls lock or at the tennis courts. At 10 am, we will be joined by the Trent Severn Antique and Classic Boat Club, and a variety of cruisers as we become a flotilla through the Town of Campbellford and on to the Village of Hastings. There are two options available for the length you wish to travel:

Travel the entire way from Locks 11/12 to Lock 18 in Hastings. Shuttle service will be available to take you back to Campbellford to pick up your vehicle and trailer.

Or, you may choose to only travel part way by boat and then return to the boat launch. Everyone is invited to complete the day of festivities in Hastings with an afternoon BBQ and entertainment. 

Book your accommodation early as there is a limited number of motels and B&Bs. For a list of this accommodation, please contact Mary Storey at mstorey@cogeco.ca or call 705-684-9560. This event is organized by the following partners: Campbellford and District Curling and Racquet Club, Trent Hills Chamber of Commerce, Trent Severn Waterway, Parks Canada and the Municipality of Trent Hills
