Welcome to Ogopogo Resort on Mountain Lake!

Life is better at Ogopogo!

Welcome to our website. Katherine and I took over ownership of this historic resort effective July 11th, 2013 and are pleased to host you, your families and friends .  We are so excited to be the owners of Ogopogo and to join the fabulous history that this resort has offered to many families.  We grew up cottaging with our family on Lake Kashabog and have many wonderful memories and experiences to draw from.  We hope to recreate those moments for our guests and our goal is to offer everyone a memorable cottage experience!
 It`s Time to Discover All of the Fun Waiting for You at Ogopogo Resort on Mountain Lake!

Life in a busy metropolis definitely has its benefits -- lots of job opportunities, things to do, places to see, people to hang out with. However, there often comes a time where you really have to step back from your busy life and get to a simpler time, in a simpler place. That`s where Ogopogo Resort comes in; surrounded by the majestic beauty of nature.  You really can`t get any better than the Haliburton Highlands.

The fishing in the Haliburton Highlands is second to none. Of course, fishing might not be your thing but you can swim, pedal boat,  canoe, kayak or try out one of our SUP  boards to unplug from the stress and strain of everyday life. For those of you that still need to be connected, Ogopogo offers free unlimited wifi in every cottage.   For those that just want to sit and enjoy everything that nature has to offer, there are plenty of gardens, pathways, and even a covered gazebo for you to do just that. Slowing down and seeing everything around you is something that will leave you feeling rested and recharged.

In the winter,  located just across the road from our resort, there are over 5.5 km of groomed nordic ski trails offering classic and skate skiing as well as  up to 4 kms of Snoe Shoeing trails.  On site we offer ice fishing  and ice skating on the lake as well as a super fun toboggan hill! Close by, dog sledding is available at  the Haliburton Forest and downhill skiing is offered at Sir Sam`s ski resort which is one of Ontario`s finest family owned ski resorts. Also now in partnership with "Yours Outdoors" there are a multitude of exciting outdoor adventures that can be arranged including ice climbing in teh winter.  Let us know what kind of experience you are looking for and we will endeavor to make it happen. If you are not into adventure you can always just snuggle into you cabin, cook a great meal in the fully equipped kitchen, enjoy the fireplace and unlimited satellite TV channels with a loved one!

Summer or winter, you will love the list of activities that the Haliburton Highlands has to offer and its an easy drive from the Toronto and Ottawa areas.

The Best Resort Ever in Canada I had a wonderful time at Ogopogo Resort. I stayed a few times with my son. The cottages are very clean and cozy. You have everything you need. I stayed during summer and winter times. Dog sledding was fun too. My son can’t wait for the marshmallows by the fire pit again. We will definitely be back!!!!
