Lake, Lakes and More Lakes
Tay Valley has over 25 lakes with fine fishing, swimming, boating and relaxing. Many have public access, others are accessed through marinas and summer lodges. Our township offers a fine selection of summer camps, tent and trailer sites, cottage rentals and bed & breakfast accommodations. Children and young people spend many memorable and happy days at camps such as Camp Cameron, Camp Davern, Camp Shomria, Christie Lake Camp and Camp Opimekon.
Your Lake Association Working For You
If you reside on one of the Township’s wonderful lakes, you can choose to join your lake association. These volunteer groups organize activities and events for lake residents and also liaise with the Township with regard to important issues. Lake Associations also play an active role in lake stewardship and other such initiatives.
Tay Valley as our name suggests is, in part nestled in the Tay River Watershed which flows into the Rideau River. The Tay River can be accessed at many points for fishing, canoeing, kayaking and swimming. It is a beautiful, clean river which offers both beginner and expert canoeing along its length. For more information check out the Friends of the Tay website www.tayriver.org and the Rideau Valley Field Naturalist’s site www.rvfn.ca
The Fall River passes through Maberly, where there is access in the village and offers a pretty river trip west.
The Mississippi River along our northern boundary is a fun river to canoe, kayak and swim, with access at Playfairville, just north of Fallbrook. For information about canoe trips in this watershed and other adjacent areas check out the Mississippi Field Naturalist’s website which is full of information about local hikes and canoe trips: www.mvfn.ca

Rideau Corridor Landscape Strategy
The Rideau Corridor Landscape Strategy is a cooperative initiative between First Nations, federal and provincial agencies, municipalities, NGOs, property owners and others to build a common vision for the Rideau Corridor.
Parks Canada has developed a short video which introduces the Rideau Corridor Landscape Strategy (the Strategy) to new audiences and provides information on progress since the formation of the Strategy Steering Committee. The video is six minutes long and features the Chair of the Strategy Steering Committee, Mayor Doug Struthers of the Village of Merrickville-Wolford as the host. Stunning imagery of the Rideau Corridor integrated with written and verbal text, make this an intriguing and relevant video to a broad range of audiences. The video will serve to raise awareness and support for this Corridor wide initiative while celebrating the significance of this National Historic Site and UNESCO World Heritage Site.
