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.
