Services Culture About the Area Recreation

Once a major railroad junction between Toronto and Ottawa, the former railroad lines now serve as a multi-purpose recreational trail (the Trans-Canada Trail) with access to hundreds of kilometers for snowmobiling, hiking, mountain biking, ATVing, cross- country skiing, horseback riding or your favorite recreational pastime.

Golf Courses:

There are plenty of opportunities to play a round of golf in the Land O’Lakes area. Whether you strive to make each round a better one or you just like to swing the club occasionally, there are courses to meet everyone’s skill level. ....go to


Few places in Ontario can boast of the clean waters that provide the setting for such tremendous sport fishing featuring Pickerel (Walleye), Lake Trout, Speckled Trout, Large and Small Mouth Bass, Northern Pike and Muskie. ....go to


The Mississippi River, one of the longest winding rivers in the province, meanders through the Land O' Lakes. The canoe and kayak routes are endless providing many opportunities for circuit routes. Of course, there are many lakes to choose from whether it’s small and intimate for a quiet paddle or large and expansive to pursue motorized watercraft activities. Many of the larger lakes have public launch sites.


Camping, swimming and other facilities can be enjoyed in our four Provincial Parks (Bon Echo, Frontenac, Sharbot Lake and Silver Lake) and in over twenty conservation areas, along with many private lodges and campgrounds. A hiker’s paradise!
