Map of Muskoka

Welcome to Muskoka!

In the Algonquin language, Muskoka translates to "the land of red earth", describing the billion-year-old granite that blankets the region. Situated just a 90-minute drive from Toronto, this region shoulders the Georgian Bay on the west and Algonquin Park on the east and is encompassed by water interspersed with many small islands, making it Ontario's premiere cottage destination. Waterfalls, wildlife and towering pines are all characteristic of the Muskoka experience, but a feast of activities and attractions appeal to all interests. A year-round destination, Muskoka offers something for everyone, including an abundance of colourful antique shops, close to two-dozen championship golf courses, over 2,000 km (1,243 mi) of groomed snowmobile trails, a vibrant art community, several historically significant attractions and much more. This area welcomes over one million visitors each year who come from all areas of the globe to experience Muskoka from the bow of a boat, the seat of a bicycle or the tread of their own shoes.
