    Just a three hour drive from Toronto and Ottawa, Algonquin Provincial Park is a 'must see' for jaw dropping wildlife encounters and spectacular scenery. Algonquin is easily accessible from Muskoka or you can stay in a rustic luxury lodge in the park. The size of Devon, Algonquin is home to a population of over 3,000 moose as well as white-tailed deer, black bear and wolf. The park's dramatic landscape consists of rocky ridges, spruce bogs, crystal-clear lakes and rivers and Beech, Sugar Maple and Pine trees as far as the eye can see. Summer brings a carpet of wildflowers and when Autumn comes, the forest is ablaze with reds, oranges and yellows. The best way to explore is by canoe or on foot; there are routes and trails for all levels of fitness and experience.

    134 miles north of Toronto, Huntsville is located in the hilly terrain of the Canadian Shield and is dotted with many lakes. With its natural beauty and abundant natural resources Huntsville is a great place to visit. Huntsville also acts as a western gateway to Algonquin Provincial Park, ideal for hiking, biking, or simply admiring the beautiful scenery. There are three large lakes within the township boundary, Mary Lake, Lake Vernon, and Fairy Lake, as well as countless smaller lakes where you can enjoy fishing, canoeing, kayaking or simply sit back and take a lake cruise.

    Only two and a half hours north of Toronto, Minett is located in the heart of Ontario's "Cottage Country," with its endless blue lakes, countless islands and stretches of sandy beaches.
