We are located in the village of Port Carling, on scenic James Bartleman Island Park. The island is situated between both the large and small locks, and provides picnic tables and newly renovated washroom facilities. The island is accessed by a footbridge off of the main street, (Joseph Street) in the centre of the village.  Parking space may be found on nearby village streets, behind the Library, or at the Community Centre.
