Location of the mouth of the Napanee River in southern Ontario

The Napanee River is a river in Lennox and Addington County and Frontenac County in Eastern Ontario, Canada.[1] It is in the Great Lakes Basin and flows from its source at Camden Lake to its mouth at the Bay of Quinte on Lake Ontario at Napanee. It flows through a valley of preglacial origin. The valley of the Napanee is lined with settlements such as Greater Napanee, Newburgh, Camden East, Yarker, and Petworth.

This river was originally called the Appanea.[citation needed] A grist mill was constructed on the river in 1785 near the current site of the town of Greater Napanee. Other mills were added at Yarker and Camden East.
