We booked the shuttle service from Southampton to Walkerton the week of our canoe trip, weather and water levels meant we left it to the last minute. Our driver was helpful unloading our gear and the cost could not be beat.

If you want to canoe down the Saugeen, but you don't have a canoe this is the place in Southampton. They will arrange the whole trip for you. There is a good supply of geaar for sale in the shop too.

Super place for all outdoor activity supplies and equipment. Very knowledgeable,will not steer you wrong. They also do canoe, kayak excursions or will drop off at any water point and pick you up at the other end.
