Between 8 and 9 miles below Grafton is the village of Colborne, with its wharf for the accommodation of trading craft.

Both these ports are exposed to the heavy seas of the Lake, and afford no shelter to vessels, except when the wind is off shore, or to the northward of E. or W. The villages themselves being small, they offer no inducement to the numerous Lake steamers to touch at their ports, and which are frequented only by small schooners carrying wood, or in the fall of the year, produce of different kinds.


One mile W. of Colborne there is a projecting point of land called Ogden's Point, off which is a reef of boulders.

In approaching the Port of Colborne from the Westward, care must be taken try give this point a wide berth.
