Huntsville Travel Guide: Muskoka, Ontario
Welcome to Huntsville!Huntsville hugs the banks of the Muskoka River on the southwest corner of Algonquin Park. As the largest centre so close to the park, its streets support many of the amenities visitors will need before heading into the park and a few that may offer a break from the wilderness. Amongst enchanting log buildings, massive stone houses and heritage sites, restaurants offer a culinary escape from camp hot dogs and flaming marshmallows, but don't expect to lose the wilderness entirely. With Algonquin Park so close, wildlife is a common sight on Huntsville's avenues, and getting a closer look look is an easy step into the wilds. Enveloping the town is a latticework of lakes, woods and streams all supported by a thriving tour and outfitting sector. Whether it's the summer joys of canoeing, kayaking or fishing a tour operator is close by. In winter, the landscape opens up to snowmobiling, ice fishing, snowshoeing, and there is even a local ski hill.
The museum restores, preserves, maintains, demonstrates and displays antique and classic boats, artifacts and memorabilia.
