This a question we still get when someone makes a reservation to stay at the Algonquin Lakeside Inn at this time of year, in fact right now is the peak time to view Moose.
Our guests on average have been seeing 4-7 Moose a day, in fact just tonight less than a mile from the Inn on hwy#60 at the entrance to Ragged Falls there is a small pond/lake and swimming across was a young bull Moose, sorry to say i just missed him as he walk off into the bush when I arrived. The good news, members of the Toronto Digital camera club that have been staying with us this weekend were able to see him and get some good pictures...

Picture of our temperature gauge in the shade at the front door of the Algonquin Lakeside Inn
We just had a great holiday May 2/4 weekend temps are over 30+ and will continue that way for this week as well.
That's great news as the heat kills the Black Flies.....

Kenny and Bob are part of a group that stayed with us for two days. They knew that the Lakes in the Algonquin Park area has a great reputation for quality fresh water Fish, and wanted to give it a try their first time for Northern Pike.
The group is on a cruise across Canada vacation, that started at Salt Spring Island B.C. and finishes in Halifax N.S.
Northern Pike was their target Fish so to help them with a Boat and Guide service they used a local charter service http://www.redlineoutdoors.ca/
If you ever thought of doing an across Canada tour check out their blog @

- that we are located on the shores of Oxtongue Lake which is right at the West entrance to Algonquin Park.
- On the grounds we also have a small swamp area in the back as well as a large old growth tree area, and then the large lawns.
- and what really helps is the 30+ and varied types of Bird feeders dotted around.
