Reviews for Frankford Lockwall and Municipal Tieup
Very Nice Stop, 2017-07-17
Captain: , Stoneledge, Cayuga Lake (130)

Quiet, power, very helpful and friendly lock master, shade and a restaurant with steak night. What more can you ask?

perfect spot for the night with Electric, 2017-07-05
Captain: , Campbell Creek, NC (594)

We were directed to the west wall by the lock master. 4 power pedestals west and several on the east side.
Electric is $9.80
You get a key to the bathroom at lockmaster house, if you ask. You can also have the code to showers, which are in the green roof building at the camp ground area.
Very pretty, quiet place. Enjoyed the evening and scenery.

great Wall stop on the TSW, 2017-06-16
Captain: , Hilton Head, SC (420)

We stayed 1 night heading N. VERY helpful dockmaster directed us to a spot on the wall above the lock

Nice quiet stop with electric and shade, 2016-07-08
Captain: , Buffalo,ny (60)

The lock masters help you tie up. They told us one side had morning shade and the other in the afternoon. Demitri's restaurant has great food and have special's like wing night and steak night.
Jim the owner said he'll drive you home if needed. I think he'll have you picked up as well!! The walk is not bad though. They also deliver to the lock.

Nice stop with electric, 2016-06-12
Captain: , Woodstock, Georgia (409)

We stopped here on June 8th. The Parks Canada Staff are very friendly and willing to share ifnormation about the locks and canal system. Outside the occasional traine whistle, it was quiet. It was a short walk to the showers. If you need water, make sure you have at least 200 fet of hose.

Perfect for what we wanted, 2015-08-23

A Nice Stop, 2014-07-27
Captain: , Green Cove Springs FL (1394)

Getting Started on the TSW and this was a nice stop. Quiet
Park Like and good staff. Every lock was a picnic place and good
Wash Room facilities. This is a good start and more to look forward to.

reprovisioning possible, 2014-06-15
Captain: , Naples, FL (1096)

Decent grocery store, hardware store, lcbo, post office within walking distance. Nice stopping point between Trenton and Campbellford. Walk down to park rather than the upper grassed area and you can avoid geese droppings.

Nice Stop at Lock 6 Wall with Electric, 2014-06-15
Captain: , Cape Coral, Fl (838)

We stopped at Lock 6 wall for the night. Only one of two Parks Canada lock walls with electric (I.e. Hydro).

Pleasant Stop, 2012-06-16
Captain: , Guntersville, AL (451)

I agree with the previous report. The Lockmasters are very helpful. The walk to town was longer than we like and there was not too much there.

Good place to stay, 2012-06-16
Captain: , punta gorda, fl (1448)

We stayed above the lock on the east side. Very attractive park like grounds. Electric for $9.90. Dockage included with mooring pass otherwise .90/ft for dockage. Ten minute walk to town with grocery and restaurants. Parks Canada campground on west side with showers available to boaters also.

Lock Wall w/electric!, 2011-07-25
Captain: , Mystic, CT (382)

Quiet space for 5 boats. Each space has electric available for $9.80 charge per night. Restrooms are clean, showers are available a short walk away at the campground. Chinese buffet in town was recommended, was OK not great

Great Park, 2011-06-28
