Terrific Kids Entertainment & Activities throughout both days. Lots of things to see and do ... Something for everyone ! Over the summer season, we have hundreds of visitors here at the Information Centre located on Hwy. 69. We provide extensive information and services to the travelling public as well as to our seasonal and permanent residents. Many visitors make use of our High Speed Internet Services as well as our new, modern wheelchair access washroom which was installed in 2008. It is a well kept, much appreciated addition to our Information Centre by our travelling visitors.
Pointe au Baril is located on the shore of the magnificent Georgian Bay with sparkling blue water with windswept pines - Tom Thomson country!! For the avid fisherman/woman, enjoy the excitement of getting that prize Northern Pike, Bass, Walleye or Perch. We have many fishing camps and Bay Resorts with everything you might need - from guides to fishing boats.
And, there is so much more than fishing! Enjoy boating, hiking, riding the RV trails, site seeing and great eating. Fresh pine scented air and pure water to drink.
In addition to the great Georgian Bay, we also have smaller lakes in the area. Moose Lake is just off Highway 69 and is a very special spot for those who like to canoe or row.
Naiscoot Lake and River are easy to access and have superb boating and fishing. Harris Lake is another great recreational Lake that connects to the Magnetawan River System. A great place for long scenic rowing trips alone or with groups of outdoor enthusiasts.
Our hospitality is second to none; we strive to make your trip to the area memorable for you and your family.
For maps and information about this wonderful area, please contact our Information Centre and we will be happy to assist you.
The Chamber of Commerce Information Centre located at 1650 Hwy. 69 on the east side of the highway just as you enter Pointe au Baril from the South. And, as you leave Pointe au Baril from the North.
We look forward to seeing you here in the beautiful Pointe au Baril area of Georgian Bay.
