Go north on highway 400 towards Barrie. At Barrie, follow signs for highway 11 north to North Bay. Continue on highway 11 north to the town of South River.
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.
