Magnetawan Ontario is a historic village located on the beautiful Magnetawan River. It was aptly named by the Algonquin natives, ’Swiftly flowing River’.
Explore our waterways - historic locks and dams, ghost towns, turn-of-the-century cemeteries, corduroy roads and abandoned homesteads along an unparalleled picturesque roadway.
The quiet country roads surrounding the village are ideal for mountain
biking, driving, hiking, or even horseback riding and become a psychedelic cavalcade of colour during the transitory days, leading from summer into fall.
And let's not forget the bounty of birds
and wildlife that can be observed throughout the year. For the “birdwatcher”, don't forget your favorite bird book and your binoculars as, they are a must in this region.
Not to be out done by anyone else, this river system offers boating, swimming, fishing or just plain relaxing and lounging around. Whether you are an avid fisher or a recreational angler, the pickerel, pike, bass and trout will give you a good fight and provide hours of enjoyment.
You can put your boat in the water in the Village of Burk's Falls and travel through scenic Lake Cecebe through the historic locks and on to Ahmic Harbour, thus following the historic route, used by many Steamships of the early days.
