    Oxtongue Lake Information

    Oxtongue Lake is a moderate sized in-stream lake situated in the northern most area of the Township of Algonquin Highlands and is the last lake before reaching the west gate of Algonquin Park.  It is a deep lake with excellent swimming and canoeing opportunities along its predominately sandy shoreline.  The lake encompasses a surface area of 242 ha (2.42 km2) and a total shoreline of 21 km.

    The shoreline of Oxtongue Lake is generally characterized as being moderately developed, with a mix of shoreline residential properties and small cottage resorts. The lake is enclosed by large sections of Crown Lands, including Ragged Falls at the north end, Oxtongue River Rapids to the sound end, and its close proximity to Algonquin Park ensures a backdrop of wilderness pleasure that has inspired paintings and books over its many years.
