Village of Westport

Village of Westport LogoThere is always something happening in Westport. This scenic village is called "The Heart of Rideau Lakes" because of its location at the west end of Upper Rideau Lake at the head of the navigable Rideau Canal system. It has a public wharf on a man-made island with dock space for up to 30 vessels. The harbour also has a picnic area. Fishing is particularly good here because the lakes benefit from fish-rearing ponds established by the provincial government almost half a century ago. While fishing is not allowed in the rearing ponds, anglers can try their luck on either Upper Rideau Lake, Westport Lake, Sand Lake or several other smaller bodies of water. This is a vacation paradise for boaters, hikers and outdoor enthusiasts.

Westport is known for its scenic downtown core and its many shopping opportunities. You'll find a variety of shops displaying crafts, arts, jewelry, furnishing and much more. Accommodations are plentiful with numerous cottages, lodges and campgrounds. For a spectacular view of the Westport basin hike up to Spy Rock on Foley Mountain.
