Algonquin Highlands is a beautiful, park-like municipality nestled among myriad lakes and rolling hills.  Located on the western side of the Haliburton Highlands, life here provides a wide variety of year-round activities and events as well as an engaging and relaxed lifestyle.  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.

The municipality is characterized by small settlements and a significant amount of both waterfront and rural areas known far and wide as "cottage country".  The Township includes half the village of Dorset, part of Carnarvon, and the hamlets of Boshkung, Buttermilk Falls, Halls Lake, Little Hawk Lake, Maple Lake, Ox Narrows and Oxtongue Lake, the latter having the pleasure of being nestled up beside, and sharing the history of, Algonquin Provincial Park.
