We’re currently in the midst of mud season here at Elk Lake Wilderness Resort, as spring’s thaw came earlier than expected this year. The region, particularly the tranquil forestry near Elk Lake, is best known for its snowmobiling, hiking, fishing, and, of course, backcountry ATV adventures in Ontario.
The preferred method of exploration for many is much simpler: fill a pack, grab a map, lace up those boots, and trek into the unknown. That being said, backpacking in Ontario doesn’t have to equate to “roughing it” through the bush and shivering under the stars. Enter: Elk Lake Wilderness Resort, the perfect balance of beauty, seclusion, and convenience.
