Fun Activities – Summer
In the heart of lake country, Ogopogo Resort is ideal for a couples or family based all season vacation/getaway.. We have also seen a growing trend for grandparents to vacation with their grandchildren giving Mom and Dad a break and creating special memories. We have created an environment that is both safe and relaxing for all. Swim, play in the sand, fish, canoe or kayak, go tubing and water-skiing and relax all on-site. Fabulous golf courses are within 15 minutes not to mention hiking and biking trails, live theatre, local artists studios, and white water kayaking.
Sand Beach & Swimming
Ogopogo has a sand beach area for young and older alike to enjoy the crystal clear waters of Mountain Lake. Our dock is great for swimmers looking for deep water.

Our small navy of boats is available for the use of our guests. There is no charge for our non-motorized craft and fishing boat rentals are available on a daily or weekly basis. There is a safe children’s play area near the pool.

Mountain Lake has great Small Mouth Bass, Muskeye, Pickerel and Lake Trout fishing. Check out our fishing pictures under the activities section of our website. We offer for rent; 18 ft fibreglass boats complete with 25 hp electric start motors and swivel fishing seats.
