Located in the centre of Kawawaymog Lake, 1.5 km east of Algonquin Access Point #1, the Island Retreat was once a “camp” of Algonquin Park Ranger Wattie. Tom Thomson was also a Park ranger and came to visit Wattie at his camp, the island Retreat, on the west side of Algonquin. Thomson became good friends with Wattie and would visit the island “camp” often as well as his friends in the town of South River. “The Tent” and “Round Lake, Mud Bay” were painted by Thomson while staying at the Island.

Day 1
4:00pm rendezvous at the Canoe Outpost at the northwest corner of Algonquin Park. Meet your Voyageur Quest representative and learn or refresh your canoeing skills before paddling out to the island. Relax, unwind and enjoy a sunset dinner for two with local beer and wine, smoked fish and steak BBQ.

Day 2
Sleep in or take in Algonquin’s best sunrise from the walkout deck from the master bedroom. Explore Kawawaymog Lake by canoe. Read on the hammock, swim or do nothing!

Day 3
Paddle over to the Outpost to catch a shuttle to the South River. Head down river with a map and deluxe riverside picnic. Try your luck fishing for trout in the many dark fishing holes. Mid afternoon pick up and shuttle back to the Outpost for a floating sauna.

Day 4
Rise and shine for an amazing sunrise paddle down the Amable du Fond through the morning mist. Search for Moose and beaver lodges and take advantage of spectacular photography opportunities. Enjoy a farewell lunch at the Outpost before departing.

While the Island Retreat is “off the grid”, it is comfortable. The master bedroom is on the second floor and offers a beautiful walk out deck with chaises and an outdoor dining table. A wood stove heats the cabin and there is a private washroom with hot shower and toilet (for night time – outhouse available for day time), a fully equipped kitchen, living room, dining table and storm room complete the first floor. The front deck faces west with a small dining table for perfect sunset dining. The north side of the island is rocky and good for swimming. The south side is a beach with 20-foot dock and floating sauna. There is a BBQ for outdoor grilling.
