Lakes free up from the winter ice, at the beginning of April.Animals, which disappeared over the winter, hibernating, or going south, return. Most noticeably, the Moose and Loons. We see an abundance of them along the Highway 60 corridor, early morning and dusk, as the brackish salt water, left behind after the long cold Canadian winter, draws them in. If you wish to have a close encounter with these amazing creatures this is the perfect time.It is the time to see this years newborns with their mothers, they will be shedding their winter coats, ready for the warmer weather.
Summer is a wonderful time of year anywhere, but on Oxtongue Lake, it is something truly special. Take a quiet lazy Canoe ride on the lake, to nearby Ragged Falls, a truly relaxing experience, with a great payoff. Take a cool drink and a sandwich or spend the day at Algonquin Park right on our doorstep. Hike the many themed trails, visit the new East Gate Visitors center and the Logging Museum. With so much to see and do, you will go back home refreshed and with a new sense of well being and renewal.
