Muskoka draws approximately 85,000 seasonal residents from spring to fall each year. In addition to hotels and cottages, numerous summer camps, outdoor recreation centres and retreats operate in Muskoka. Religious groups, major charities and traditional overnight camps have facilities on Muskoka lakefront property. It is also a destination for meetings: the 36th G8 Summit, a conference of leaders from eight of the world’s most industrialized democracies, was held at Deerhurst Resort, outside Huntsville, in June 2010 (see The G8 Go to Muskoka).
Muskoka hosts cultural events throughout the year, from the Antique and Classic Boat Show in the summer to the Bala Cranberry Festival in the fall and the Bracebridge Fire and Ice Festival in the winter.
Striking lakes and landscapes, abundant wildlife and charming ice-cream communities make Muskoka one of Ontario’s most cherished natural playgrounds.
The area is renowned for over 1,500 sparkling freshwater lakes and mature mixed forests as far as the eye can see, with southern deciduous trees transitioning to northern coniferous pines. Rocky shorelines and exposed Canadian shield formations offer the opportunity to glimpse a moose, beaver or graceful blue heron.
