Lake of the Woods (LOTW) is one of Canada’s most pristine bodies of water. This freshwater lake encompasses more than 14,552 islands, and spans 65,000 miles (105,000 kms) of shoreline. Little wonder that the area remains a favourite recreational region for those looking for seasonal cabins, lakefront cottages, and private resorts.
World-renowned for its rugged rock outcrops, expansive forested areas and nature preserves, many islands provide nesting habitat for countless bird species, including hundreds of once-endangered bald eagles. And recreational anglers near and far appreciate the endless supply of fish from walleye, northern pike and perch to bass and muskie.
This international body of water (a portion of the lake’s southern basin is in the United States), is also home to the acclaimed Royal Lake of the Woods Yacht Club, a crown jewel in this recreational area since its inception in 1903.
