For those seeking an authentic off-grid adventure, Brennan’s Hill Camping, a 100-acre campground in the stunning South River region, offers an unparalleled camping experience fully immersed in the Northern Ontario Wilderness.

To accompany your backwoods experience, if you like the rush of tearing through the woods by ATV, you have to book a tour with Outdoor Adventures ATV - it’s like riding a rollercoaster but instead of cityscapes, you’re winding through the beautiful forests, rivers and lakes in Almaguin. You might even see a moose - or two! You can also take your rugged adventure off-land and into a kayak with one of Outdoor Adventures' experienced guides. 

Get ready to go for a rip, your ultimate ride is waiting for you. 

Different experience-level packages are available.

Double Decker 

You’re going to want a bite to eat after all of that exploring and the Double Decker in Sundridge. This landmark restaurant was a staple in the Almaguin region for years and recently reopened under new management and has been serving up the flavour. Fresh, homemade everything - Double Decker is not your typical fast food joint. They even have soft-serve ice cream.

Doe Lake Rizzort 

Nestled amongst the rolling hills of Almaguin, the pristine shores of Doe Lake are waiting for the footprints of children, laughing as they splash into the water, after a long winter. Camping at the trailer or cottage is often a fond memory and Doe Lake Rizzort has over 40 acres of woodland overlooking Doe Lake as well as a private sandy beach that is ready for you and your family to come visit and have the best summer ever. You can even bring the dog! There is a separate beach for canine companions. 

With many recreational activities, small convenience, and a marina/boat docking available, Doe Lake Rizzort is a place you will want to bring your family back to year after year. 


Scarlett Point 

A hidden oasis tucked away in Almaguin, Scarlett Point offers luxury just mere minutes from Algonquin Park. Located in Kearney, nine fully furnished villas are ready for you and your loved ones to come and make memories on the shores of beautiful Mirror Bay. Surrounded by water on all three sides you can wake up and have your coffee on the lake-view balcony, enjoying the peaceful sunrise. 

When it comes to activities, the resort offers canoes, kayaks, and rowboats you can keep at your private dock or you can head out into Almaguin to choose your adventure. 


Midlothian Castle

Spark your imagination and restore your faith in magick because when you enter the Screaming Heads of Midlothian you are transported to the primal, esoteric realms of mystery that will inspire young and older alike. The Screaming Heads are sculpted by Canadian artist Peter Camini, and public art installation has been a fixture in the region for decades and is home to Harvest Festival. 

It is important to note that the 300-acre property is a private residence and access is by donation. There are some amazing shops at the entrance, however, featuring unique art and cool clothing so you can take a piece of the magic home with you. Be sure to bring cash and get ready for an out-of-this-world adventure.

They also offer other food truck fare such as loaded french fries, mozza sticks, and sausage on a bun.
