Whether viewed by land or water, the Rideau Canal offers an abundance of experiences that are unique to our community. Niknaks Paddle Shack is conveniently located between two of the Rideau Canal’s 45 operational locks, allowing visitors to witness and experience two very different kinds of lock, both within 400m of our home base.

Our home base is located at 1 Park Avenue between Murphy Park and Centennial Park “under the water tower” in Smiths Falls.
