Rock Dunder

Beautiful winter sky

In early Spring of 2006, the Rideau Waterway Land Trust, with the help of our members and supporters, raised the funds to purchase a wonderful property known as Rock Dunder. This property was previously a wilderness camp for the Boy Scouts for almost 40 years. Scouts Canada decided this property would be sold and the funds used to upgrade other camps in the area which were better suited to younger campers.

Rock Dunder is a treasure that lies within the internationally recognized Thousand Islands Frontenac Arch Biosphere Reserve. Autumn coloursRising 275 feet above Morton Bay, with trails leading to one of the highest points of land in the area, Rock Dunder provides breathtaking views of the surrounding lakes and woodlands. The trails and vistas are enjoyed year round, by both local residents and visitors to the area. For many, childhood memories of hiking trips to Rock Dunder still remain fresh in their minds.

Located at the portage leading to the Gananoque River system and down through the heart of the UN Biosphere, Rock Dunder provides a natural rest for canoeists traveling the Rideau Waterway.

The Land Trust volunteers have been working hard to make improvements to the trails and repairs to the two log cabins which provide a brief rest stop for hikers.
