THE COTTAGE OUTPOST
AT SOUTH RIVER:
Make a right (going east) on Ottawa Avenue. Follow Ottawa Avenue east out of town. It will bend a number of times and you will travel past Swift Canoes, Tracs Outfitters and eventually over a bridge. Once over the bridge, follow the road approximately 25-30 minutes (about 25- 30km). You will pass a few intersections including a road with a sign to Project Dare. Keep going straight!
This road takes you straight to the Algonquin Park Access Point # 1 parking lot. Right before reaching the parking lot make a right hand turn down the road. You will drive about 1 km up a large hill and down the hill. At the bottom of this hill you will see a lakeside road join the main cottage road (on your left). Take the first driveway on your left past this lakeside road. Look for a grey sign with ?Nahma, Magnetawn, Nippising? at the end of our driveway.
The last 10km of the drive are on a well-maintained snow road. While this snow road does not require 4-wheel drive, we do recommend that your car have winter tires.
