The Depot, located on the waterfront adjacent to the Blockhouse in Merrickville, is our main retail outlet and Rideau interpretive center. The Depot is open daily, form mid-June through to the end of September. At The Depot, your hosts Dave and Jeanne Brett will be more than happy to provide you with any Rideau information that you may require. We also offer an array of retail items. Proceeds from the sale of these items helps to fund the work of The Friends of the Rideau.

We also offer a lovely cruise to the Rideau Bird Sanctuary aboard the electric launch Harriet By. A pleasant and relaxing trip, it's a great way to get out and see a little bit of the wonder of the Rideau.

The Depot also offers a wide array of tourism literature for the region and lots of free advice on how you can make your Rideau visit more enjoyable. There is a small theatre in which you can view Parks Canada videos about the Rideau.
