The smell of campfires burning at night, sounds of splashing and laughing throughout the day, and the crunch of twigs underfoot on long nature walks are all part of summer life in Orillia’s Lake Country, where pristine lakes and rivers meet sandy beaches and rocky shorelines. Ramara features two freshwater lakes and a river system with parks right at their shores, offering tenting, cabins and/or RV hookups.

Discover some of the best beaches in the area at Mara Provincial Park on Lake Simcoe, where days are filled with swimming, fishing and biking through the park. Further along the shoreline, McRae Point Provincial Park offers the beauty of life outdoors with everything you need to enjoy a weekend or longer with the family, including large pull-through sites of large and extra-large trailers.

When you’re not swimming or kayaking, rent a boat, nearby, to cruise the clean waters of lakes Simcoe and Couchiching. Throw in a line to catch walleye, Lake Trout, perch, small-mouth bass and whitefish. Some of the best fishing in central Ontario is right here.

After a day of adventure, sunsets from the campsites are breathtaking in this part of Orillia’s Lake Country.
