Lockstatio­n Camping


After a long day of boating, one needs a place to rest their weary head. Lockstatio­n camping, or “boating camping,” is an option at 24 of the 26 locks. Pitch a tent beside the canal or on the adjacent lawns. Or you can glam-camp by reserving oTENTik tents. New to the park in 2016, these are a cross between a cabin and a tent: they have a wooden A-frame, which includes bunk beds and tables, with a canvas roof. These are available at locks 19, 34, and 44. Sweet dreams!
