Paddling a canoe or kayak is a great way to explore the wealth of truly wonderful waterways that are the focus of the Township of Rideau Lakes, enjoy the great outdoors and get some exercise. Be sure to bring your camera and binoculars to spot the wildlife. Do not forget your hat, some sunscreen and a container of water. Insect repellent might be necessary in the narrow creeks. Always respect private property and please leave only paddle eddies behind you.
