Come for the View

With an abundance of beautiful lakes and some of the most beautiful scenery in Ontario, Land O’ Lakes offers waterfront accommodation rentals, nestled in the pine forests of the province’s highlands. The comfy inns and character-filled B&B’s give you a place to rest after a day spent cycling, hiking, fishing, golfing or just relaxing.  If you plan to stay awhile, Land O’Lakes offers a wide range of camping experiences – from spacious RV-friendly sites, to more remote areas that are only accessible by water.

This region is a preferred destination of sunbathers, swimmers and water sport enthusiasts, as well as those that want to get back to nature.

Drop Your Line and See What You Find

Anglers flock to the Land O’ Lakes each year to take in the world class bass, walleye, pike, and crappie fishing that the 5,000 lakes in this region have to offer. In fact, some of the world’s greatest fishing and boating opportunities can be found here.
Try your hand at kayak fishing. The calm, clear lakes of Frontenac Provincial Park provide the perfect environment for kayak fishing. Rental shops like the Land O’Lakes Outfitters can set you up with a kayak and all the fishing gear you need. Glide through the water while angling for smallmouth bass, lake trout, perch and pike.

Guided Fishing Packages
Cottage Fishing Adventures is an all inclusive guided fishing service specializing in black crappie, bass, walleye, pike, musky, lake trout and bluegill, on a comfortable Crestliner Transport certified boat.

Cottage Fishing Adventures
Check out this world class guiding service in the Land O’ Lakes, offering the “Pre-Historic Package,” on Stoco Lake. Have the experience of a lifetime and spend the day tracking down something totally different; the long-nosed gar pike!  A day of fishing for a creature that has been around since pre-historic time is not something many people get the chance to do.


In the Land O’ Lakes region you can escape from the haze of artificial city lights and sleep under a canopy of stars. If you’ve ever wondered what the night sky looked like 100 years ago, spend an evening stargazing at the Lennox-Addington County Dark Sky Viewing Area. Professional astronomers have said that the Dark Sky Viewing Area is in the most southerly point in the province, where you can still get a perfect, unimpeded view of the night sky. Stargazers can catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights or the nebulae, that make up just a tiny part of our Milky Way Galaxy. You don’t need to bring any professional equipment to enjoy the celestial sights here, though a decent pair of binoculars or a camera is always recommended. If you want to set up your camera or telescope, the tennis-court-sized concrete viewing area is the perfect spot. Another option is to bring your lawn chairs and stay warm under a blanket while enjoying the peaceful view.

Find the Lennox-Addington County Dark Sky Viewing area in the Sheffield Conservation Area, just north of the 410 on County Road 41, just 36 kilometers north of Napanee, Onatrio.

Track Down Hidden Treasures

Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to find a geocache, a hidden container filled with treasures that another team or person has left behind.  Find the clues and GPS coordinates online and then begin your search. This pastime is quickly gaining popularity in Land O’ Lakes, with thousands of geo-caches hidden throughout the region. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment. Use your smartphones or GPS device and explore and discover places off the beaten path in the beautiful Land O’ Lakes.

Play a Round or Two

Rivendell Golf Club is an oasis of golf set in the Canadian Shield just north of Verona Ontario. Lush fairways meander through a green valley bisected by Jack’s Creek and rocky outcroppings of a granite ridge. Rivendell provides a picturesque setting for your game away from the bustle of the big city that will entice you to return again and again. The par 71 course, favours shot placement over power and precision over brute force. Afterwards, enjoy incredible views from the Club House.
