Battersea (Ontario)

Battersea is a community in the Canadian province of Ontario, located in the township of South Frontenac, Ontario, 20 kilometres north of Kingston. Battersea is well known for its fishing and outdoor activities as it is closely located to Loughborough Lake, Dog Lake and the Rideau Canal Waterway.

Get in

From Kingston and Kingston Mills, take Battersea Road (Montréal Street, 401 exit 619) northbound to Battersea.

From elsewhere in the Rideau Canal system (including Smiths Falls), take 15 south and cross the canal near Brewers Mills (any of Burnt Hills Road, CR12 - Sunbury Road or Washburn Road join Hwy 15 to CR 11 - Battersea Road). While the Battersea Road itself continues north to end at Highway 15, this becomes a winding road and progressively more difficult as one continues north through Frontenac County.

From Westport, take CR 10 - Perth Road south to Inverary, then turn east.

Get around

This is a large rural area with small villages, most or all of which are only reachable by motorcar. Greyhound does operate daily Voyageur bus service with limited stops on Highway 15 to link Kingston to Ottawa, but there's no bus on the west side of the canal.
