You've heard of the Great Lakes, but have you ever had the chance to visit? Lake Ontario is a fantastic glamping destination and aptly named by the Iroquois, its name meaning 'lake of shining waters.' Not only is Lake Ontario one of the larger, five Great Lakes, it is also connected to the Atlantic Ocean and therefore particularly interesting. All the water in the Great Lakes flows through this lake, fish travel to and from the ocean to the freshwater, and the varied landscapes; from sandy dunes and wetlands to woodlands and rugged cliffs, makes Lake Ontario singularly unique to the others. From the Bay of Quinte or Eighteen Mile Creek to Hamilton Harbour and the Oswego River, these mountain cottages are a spectacular way to get outdoors and visit Lake Ontario.
