Nestled in against the border of Algonquin Park, is the little slice of natural heaven that is the Oxtongue Lake area. Oxtongue Lake connects Lake of Bays to Algonquin Park via the picturesque Oxtongue River. Oxtongue Lake offers excellent swimming and bathing along the predominantly sandy shoreline. Water clarity on the lake is excellent. Maximum depth of the lake is believed to be 90 feet. Fishing is good in the area. Abundant wildlife such as ducks, loons, blue herons, beaver, muskrats, moose , deer and foxes call this area home too. The lake is enclosed by large sections of Crown Lands and the close proximity to Algonquin Park ensure a backdrop of wilderness pleasure.
Oxtongue Lake is approximately 20 minutes from Huntsville, the nearest town. Close by is the village of Dwight.
