Jordan Harbour Marina

Recommended Posts

A while back we mentioned Campbell's Marina  at Jordan . I can't find it in the archives , but  the owner was Don Campbell .....going way back to the 50's here .....

 

I was very surprised to see Don passed away yesterday   .............

 

"Owner of Campbell's Boats (Jordan Harbour) for almost 40 years. Don's happiest times were spent with family, skiing whether it be in Ellicottville, Whistler or Lake Louise or on his various fishing and hunting trips"..........taken from the Standard obituaries .....his photo included .

 

May he rest in peace .....

Remember launching there in the '80's, when salmon fishing was a 100 times more popular than today, parking lot was full and overflow on the service road went a long ways back to regional 24.

I remember visiting my cousin who lived on the east side of St.Kitts (Waverly Rd.) in the early 50's . I rode from west St.Kitts & it took about 20 minutes on my balloon tire one speed .There was traffic lights at the QEW and Welland Ave then . ....very few vehicles using it .  They had to cross the Welland Ship Canal via the Homer Bridge to get to Niagara Falls and the wait could be 20 min.+ sometimes .  Jordan Harbour was a busy place with the marina on the west side and a beach on the lake side .

Dave , that picture was probably taken in the 30's !  Wayyyyy before my time .....;)

The last two I remember well . My  first car , a 1950 Pontiac Silver Streak torpedo back might be in that parking lot . There was a big old house beside the QEW where the original road came into the marina  ....memories !

"Those were the days my friend"   We rented a heavy steel flat bottom boat for a buck with a set of oars and a cement anchor which was  needed to keep the cats from dragging us out to sea .....
