Lake of the Woods is Ontario’s second largest inland lake. It borders on the U.S. state of Minnesota and the provinces of Ontario and Manitoba, although two thirds of its 1,465 square miles of water lies within Ontario. The lake has 65,000 miles of shoreline and more than 14,600 islands with huge forests and granite hills surrounding the shoreline.
The lake encompasses over 1.5 million acres and edges villages, small cities and pristine wilderness. The urban areas from within the region vary from resort communities, government centres and villages where wood is king.
Lake of the Woods is truly a natural wonder. If you are ever in the area, please make a point of getting out on the lake…. you won’t regret it!
