Adventure Day 2.0

Adventure Day 2.0 Ontario’s Lake Country

Article by Brennan Moxey

Ontario’s Lake Country teamed up with Tourism Simcoe County to explore some of the activities and locations within our region for our 2nd Adventure Day this Summer.

This time we explored the Black River Wilderness Park, Tailwinds Restaurant, Lake Country Airways, and Bayview Wildwood Resort.

Our Adventure Day begins at Black River Wilderness Park. We got to explore the wilderness-feel campground as well as its hiking trails.

The trails at Black River Wilderness Park allow you to connect with nature and offers some amazing views and photo opportunities of the flowing river and its many islands.

After our hike at Black River Wilderness Park we learned about its numerous overnight accommodation opportunities including yurts, tipis and cabins. In addition to its R-V and tent camping sites.

For our next activity on our Adventure Day list it was time to reach for the skies and explore Lake Country from above.

Lake Country Airways, located at Orillia Rama Regional Airport, presents an ideal way to get a unique perspective on the beauty and grandeur of the Lake Country region from the air.

During our flight, we flew over the beautiful sunshine city of Orillia and both Lake Simcoe and Lake Couchiching.

All in all it was a memorable experience and one not to be missed in the region.

After our scenic flight of Lake Country, we were feeling a bit hungry. What better way to enjoy food then at the local Tailwinds Bar and Grill located at Lake Country Airways.

This restaurant offers an amazing view of the runway while enjoying delicious food. Not to mention the beautiful lakeside patio they have which gives you an even better view of the planes landing and taking off.

Tailwinds Bar & Grill is a great location to enjoy all day breakfast, lunch or a delicious dinner.

You will not be disappointed, not to mention the servings at Tailwinds are filling and inexpensive.

After our tasty lunch we ventured to the beautiful Bayview Wildwood Resort where we had several fun-filled activities planned. But before we get into details about our activities, I wanted to give some background info about this Resort!

Bayview Wildwood Resort has been around for over a hundred years, and after visiting I can see why. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the resort itself is very inviting and offers a scenic view of Sparrow Lake. In addition, the amount of activities are endless.

The first activity at Bayview was a pontoon boat cruise. We received a guided tour of Sparrow Lake and the Severn River and learned more about the beautiful region and the history of the resort.

Our second activity on the agenda was water tubing! The staff were excellent, ensuring you have the most fun possible.

They provided a brief introduction of the rules and hand signals while tubing so we had full control of the speed, wakes, and timing. Tubing was amazing! It felt like we were flying at one point.

We had a GoPro and managed to catch some shaky footage, because trust me, it is not easy to hold a GoPro and the tube at the same time!

After our tubing experience we got to unwind and have some fun on the water at their water park. Bayview’s water park consists of two water trampolines, a launch pad, a slide, and much more!

You can find a full list of the resort’s recreational activities here!



We finished our Adventure Day off with delicious ice-cream on the patio at Bayview Wildwood Resort.

This Adventure Day was a blast! If you are looking to explore Lake Country, I highly recommend visiting Black River Wilderness Park, Bayview Wildwood Resort, and Lake Country Airways. These locations offer endless fun, scenic views and a memorable experience.
