Elk Lake remains a uniquely preserved and undeniably beautiful slice of Northern Ontario tourism that not many Greater Toronto Area residents know about, which is a blessing in many regards. Repeat visitors covet this sprawling wilderness, as the landscape itself ushers in warm feelings of sheer tranquillity. The acreage that hugs the Montreal River, while striking, is mostly uninhabited land. Thus, the only Ontarians that you’ll cross paths with up here are either locals or guests at Elk Lake Wilderness Resort, one of the truest Northern Ontario fishing lodges.
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.
