We are so fortunate to be located next to Ontario's largest provincial park – Algonquin Provincial Park. A visit to this beautiful park is a must on any visitor's and local's list. Must see day adventures include the Barron Canyon Trail (1.5 km), canoeing, kayaking, or paddle boarding down the Barron Canyon River, or a hike to High Falls (10km) where you can experience the unique natural waterslide.

Getting here

The quickest way to enter the park is by the Sand Lake Gate off Barron Canyon Road. From Highway 17, take the Doran Road/Renfrew County Road 26 west exit. Soon after, turn right onto Barron Canyon Road. Continue on Barron Canyon Road for ~26kms. The gate will be on your right.

The East Gate is another entrance just off of Highway 60 but is a bit further of a distance from LV. The East Gate is the main corridor to the Park where you will find the popular Visitor Centre with more information about all services, park history and a gift shop.
