Fenelon Falls as well as Lindsay are part of the Victoria County. It is located in the heart of the Kawartha Lakes Region. It has a population of almost 2000.
Fenelon is known for fishing and boating.
All essentials such as shopping, restaurants and accommodations are offered.
We recommend that you explore parts of the Trent Severn Waterway. It is not necessary to do this up to the Georgian Bay or down to Trenton.
We still dream of traveling the whole way on a boat. We must find a tour operator who offers that.
In Fenelon we visited the Limestone Gorge.
All year long there are little events, but you have to ask to get actual information.
Fenelon Falls - many thanks to "P199" and Wikipedia

Visit also places like Sturgeon Point, Bobcaygeon, Kirkfield, Kinmount, Buckhorn etc. Stop whenever you see a nice motive when you travel and take pictures. Don't rush. Take your time. There is so much to discover.
Bobcaygeon - many thanks to "Brookie" and Wikipedia
Little Bobcaygeon is also located on the Trent-Severn Waterway. The first lock was built here in 1833.
You will find hardly any industry in this area - tourism is the main business.
Bobcaygeon end of October
Many thanks for the picture to Reinhard Raedler
Unfortunately, we could not sty very long in Bobcaygeon.
It was a mistake to try to see to see and visit many places in one day.
After we had tried snowmobiling in Newfoundland we discussed to come back to this area during winter. Snowmobiling is very popular here. For safety reasons we would love to join a guided tour with rented equipment.
We are still looking forward to do that.
We love the northern part of Ontario where still not everything is so commercialized as in the Niagara Region and nature and outdoor activities are the main attractions.
We even wanted to explore the more northern part of our province. But all of my attempts to get some none-financial help from the established and government funded tourist organizations were not answered.
Newfoundland-Labrador supported us with advise pictures and even a dinner. So we spend our money there and had a great time and met also many nice people.
Once we made a very brief vacation in Buckhorn. We got pampered in the West Wind Inn.
When we arrived it was foggy and rainy. But after a short time the sun cam out and we had a clear blue sky.
Buckhorn has only population of about 250. We did not only enjoys the hospitality of the inn and the breathtaking scenery - we were also amazed what this little community had to offer. We visited an art gallery which was dedicated to nature.
I was disappointed when I read that the gallery should torn down to make room for cottages. Fortunately this did not happen according to my information.
We were told by many people to rent a boat and to paddle along the lake or up the "Mississauga River" But we were running out of time by doing so much sightseeing and shopping some native articles.
We always love to learn more about the aboriginal people and to buy some of their art work.
We did this in the "Whetung Ojibwa Centre" at the nearby "Curve Lake".
It is a reservation where the "First Nation" lives. Every year they celebrate a big Pow Wow. If nothing is going on - ask whether they have drum nights where guests are allowed. We did this in Fort Erie.
The gift shop as well as the gallery are operated by aboriginal people.
We spent some time there and all of our questions were answered.
You can find there so many things. Even article which are not made by the natives - ask!
The most expensive article we did not found directly at the entrance.
A gift which was always appreciated are moccasins. We never purchased a totem pole or other large items. But some of the sculptures, paintings, masks, jewelry, dream catchers etc. are of interest to us.
We only could stay for one night in the "Westwind Inn"
