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.
You’ll discover seemingly neverending backcountry hiking, ATVing, and canoeing opportunities throughout the nearby crown land. Elk Lake Wilderness Resort is also one of the only family resorts in Ontario that provide fully-equipped yet affordable cottages, hand-delivered warm meals, and on-site saunas!
