Amenities and Activities
The Calabogie area offers a number of outdoor activities for nature lovers. The pristine lake and surrounding landscape offers a magnificent natural playground!
We suggest using the Barnett Park boat launch when you are ready to place your watercraft in the water. It is directly across the bay from the Resort and well set up for all boat types. We have designated watercraft slips available. Please call ahead to reserve your spot as it is on a first come, first serve basis. Due to the steady decline in requests in the past years; we have an average of 6 watercraft per week or less. 6 spots are available each week. One per unit: The boat slips are ‘use at your own risk’, we are not responsible for bumpers, ropes or secure attachment. The Resort is not liable for your watercraft in the event of damage or theft. It is the sole responsibility of the guest to ensure watercraft are anchored securely. Trailer parking is available at a designated area; inquire at the Reception Desk.
Urban Sports is now open ! Rent, purchase or check out the sports equipment available! Located on Calabogie Rd and the corner of Mill St.
