Canada is a vast country, with many different landscapes from mid-Atlantic forests to arctic tundra terrains. The province of Ontario is home to amazing lakes, rolling hills, and endless wilderness. As the weather changes, visitors and locals alike can savor the change in seasons and the natural variety it brings.
Just two hours and 30 minutes north of Toronto and east of Parry Sound lies the property, which has direct lake access. Glampers who love water sports such as swimming, kayaking, canoeing, boating, water skiing, water tubing, rafting, and fishing. There are so many lakes and streams in this area that guests could visit a new body of water each day of their trip!
When glampers want a break from water sports, they can take a day trip to one of the nearby Provincial Parks (Killbear Provincial Park, Massasauga Provincial and Algonquin Park), where there are excellent trails for walking, hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. Canada is home to amazing native species of animals, birds, and flora, so enthusiasts will never have a dull moment while wandering through the wilderness. Autumn is an extra special time of year when the leaves change from green to vibrant red, yellow, and orange.
