Pristine lakes offer fishing, boating, swimming and sparkling sunsets. Our trails, complete with maps and guidebooks, provide endless beautiful vistas, waterfalls, canoeing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, cycling and snowmobiling. Arts and heritage are alive and well with museums, galleries and quaint small town shopping. Algonquin Park is nearby, as are dozens of resorts, rental cottages and B&Bs.
