Discover the Area of Foot's Bay

Situated as it is on the Canadian Shield formation, the area is defined by rocky ground with shallow soil, supporting dense forests of small trees. Another feature of this terrain is the many lakes, rivers, waterways, and islands, making the area popular with outdoor enthusiasts for its rugged beauty and ample opportunities for adventure.

The broader region of Ontario around Foot’s Bay is also known as the Cottage Country, due to its many small cabins, cottages, and holiday homes that are popular with seasonal visitors and tourists.

Many of Foot’s Bay’s seasonal visitors come from Toronto, which is approximately 90 minutes away to the south. This relatively short journey is thanks to the Trans Canada Highway which runs past Foot’s Bay a short distance to the west.

Foot’s Bay itself is centered on the confluence of District Road 169 and Lake Joseph Road.

Beyond that are many points, islands, and rocky shores, dotted with cabins and private docks.
