Location of Hydro in Ontario

Hydro is an unincorporated place and former railway point in geographic Barron Township in the Unorganized South Part of Nipissing District in northeastern Ontario, Canada.[1] Hydro is located within Algonquin Provincial Park on Grand Lake on the Barron River.

The railway point lies on the now abandoned Canadian National Railway Beachburg Subdivision, a section of track that was originally constructed as the Canadian Northern Railway main line, between Brawny to the west and Achray to the east, at a point where a still-operational Hydro One transmission line crossed the line.
