Rideau Lakes is located in the heart of eastern Ontario, half an hour north of the City of Kingston, on Lake Ontario, and an hour south of Ottawa, the Nation’s Capital. We’re not far from Toronto and Montreal, and just a hop and jump from New York State. Several international bridges and 400 series highways make us very accessible.
The historic Rideau Canal and Waterway – a UNESCO World Heritage Site - runs directly through the area, connecting the many lakes, towns and villages in our community. Bring your cruiser, fishing boat, canoe or kayak and explore our lakes and waterways. By road, you can easily crisscross our township via County and Township roads.
