"Pointe au Baril: Sixty miles north of Muskoka, we are at Pointe au Baril, the picturesqueness of which is so exceptional that is has become one of the premier outdoor resorts in the province. It is the centre of a very large area; it is fortunate in having excellent hotels, and its advantages as a recreation field are so appreciated that a large number of permanent summer cottages have been established among the islands of the colony. There are also a number of camps withing easy canoe reach. Owing to protection by the outer fringe of islands, the inner waters are warm and pleasant for bathing; and many islands, unlike most localities of rocky formation, are partially surrounded with sandy beaches.The vicinity of Pointe au Baril offers first-class fishing. Black bass, pickerel, pike and maskinonge abound in these waters."
