Note: Sign at location indicates Owl Wood's is closed for public safety
due to deer hunting from Nov 24 - Dec 9.

Directions:
Amherst Island is 16 km west of Kingston. Take exit # 593 from Highway
401, proceed south on County Road #4 (formerly Highway 133) to Millhaven
on Lake Ontario, the ferry dock is 200m west on Hwy 33 (Bath Road). A
