Hillside • Oxtongue Lake • Dwight

Explore the three vibrant communities along Highway 60, where Muskoka meets the Algonquin Highlands, the gateway to Algonquin Park.

Hillside

Step off the beaten track to explore an iconic summer camp, the trails of the Limberlost Forest Reserve and the fascinating studios of the Artists of the Limberlost.

Oxtongue Lake

Right at the doorstep of Algonquin Park, this area boasts many cottage resorts and Ragged Falls Provincial Park. Get inspired! See where The Group of Seven painted a century ago.

Dwight

Dwight Beach is the only public beach on Lake of Bays. Explore unique shops, galleries, restaurants and bakeries or pick up a guide and take a walk through the village history.
