Relax in your own couples-only private island cottage retreat on Kawawaymog Lake at Algonquin Park Access Point # 1 on Algonquin's western boundary. The island is a short canoe paddle from Algonquin Access Point #1 and our Canoe Outpost. With 360-degree water views and two decks, the cabin is fantastic for artists or couples looking for a quiet getaway in nature.
The Island was once a "camp" of Tom Wattie, who was an Algonquin Park ranger from 1900 - 1931. Tom Thomson was also a park ranger at this time and became good friends with Wattie , visiting him often at his camp, now known as the Algonquin island retreat. "The tent" and "Round Lake, Mud Bay" were painted by Thomson while staying on the Island.
