Boat LaunchLaunching & Docking

County Shores has a large harbor and docking area. By water, we are located approximately 1.5km West of Telegraph Island and directly South of the Canadian Coast Guard Buoy Q42. We accommodate most power boats up to approximately 25ft. Our harbour has an approximate draft of 3 to 4 feet but unfortunately, is not suitable for sail boats with keels. We have a large docking space and operate our docks on a first come first choice basis. Docking and launching fees are separate from camping and accommodation fees. Boaters and anglers that are not staying at County Shores are also welcome to come use the docks to launch their boat and use our facilities on a docking/launching day use pass. Boaters must be staying at the campground (or close by) if they wish to leave their boat docked overnight as the Bay of Quinte waters can be unpredictable.

There are two main launches at County Shores and a third launch that is used for roof top boats, kayaks and canoes. With three launches there is never a fear of long line-ups to get your boat in or out of the water. Boaters and anglers are welcome to launch their own boat with their own vehicle at County Shores. If for some reason you need County Shores to launch your boat (i.e. hooked to a large R.V or maybe a small car) we are more than happy to do this with our own tow vehicle but an additional charge will apply. Please remember to always stay within the buoys in our marina to avoid any accidents or damage.

Motor BoatMotor Boat Rentals

County Shores has 6 rental boats available for rent during the spring, summer and fall season. Our boats come complete with motor, gas, paddles, life jackets and safety kits. All of our boats are 14ft aluminum fishing style with bench seating and 9.9 or 15 horsepower motors. This combination makes for the best fishing units, due to the short distance that is required to travel, and the motor's ability to troll at the low speeds required for hooking a Walleye.

All boats are rented from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm or before sunset (whichever comes first). A Pleasure Boat Operator's Card is required by the renter and operator. Prices vary due to the style of the boats and type of motor. We also have canoes and kayaks available to rent.

If renting for multiple days, Rental Boats may leave docks at sunrise on the second and following days. Half day rates are from 7 am until 12 pm or from 1 pm to 7 pm. No half day rentals available on holiday weekends or Saturdays. The first tank of gas is included in all rental prices. We don't offer boat rentals during the winter months. Our boating parameters begin at Forrester's Island (Deseronto) and extend to Trident Point (North of Big Island). All rental boats must leave from and return to our docks only. Upon registration, liability waivers and boating policies must be signed off on. A $50.00 Deposit is required to reserve a boat with a valid Visa or Mastercard.
