Owner description: The heart and soul of Algonquin Outfitters is found at our original store in Oxtongue Lake, opened in 1961. A lot has changed since that day and a lot has not. The Oxtongue Lake base maintains the largest selection of outfitting equipment, canoes and camping supplies. Canada’s largest light weight rental canoe fleet is hosted here, along with a wide selection of kayaks and even four 26′ Voyageur canoes for group outings. With a wide range of camping and canoeing gear, bikes and accessories in the rental program, the Oxtongue Lake store is set up to outfit almost any wilderness adventure. Near by you can discover a scenic easy paddle to the base of Ragged Falls on the Oxtongue River where you can enjoy the beauty of this raging waterfall or hike the near by woods. Great day trip for groups of families. Our main outfitting base is located just outside the western entrance to Algonquin Park. The resort community of Oxtongue Lake is near the village of Dwight, about 20 minutes from Huntsville on Highway 60. Established in 1961 by Bill Swift Sr. and his family, the store is centrally located to canoe route access points both along Highway 60 and on the west side of the park. Additionally, it is the home of the Swift Canoe Company’s Algonquin Canoe Store, where a wide variety of canoe models are available for sale and test paddling.

Right before Algonquin west gate. This is a retail and rental store for adventure sports. They have huge rental set up for canoe and kayak which was impressive. staff is extremely helpful and friendly. It was my first experience for kayak and they helped me and my family for the basics. Lake Oxtongue is just ok. Left side one hour tour is beautiful.

We have dropped by this store a couple of times over the past few years. This is the first time we have purchased anything as it is a bit expensive. We got a couple of really nice t-shirts and a great pair of hiking shoes on a great sale. The store is really nice and has a great variety of outdoor products. The staff is all very friendly and it was a nice experience to just look around. It was a beautiful day so the store was busy and yet not hectic. Nice place to stop on your way to Algonquin Park.

Thanks for the 4 Star review Wendy. Glad you were able to pick up a few things off of our sales rack, including a great pear of hiking shoes, a must for any visit to Algonquin Park.

Did you know that we have a Price Match Guarantee to insure you aren't paying more for the same product that you could buy elsewhere? Often people equate the quality products we sell to being expensive, but often they find that they hold great value. Hope you enjoy your hiking boots for many years to come. See you back again soon, ~ Randy M

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, Wendy.

Many of the products we carry are of superior quality and thus may indeed hold a higher price. If you do find that our prices are higher than elsewhere for the identical item, we do have a price match guarantee policy that can address this, even with souvenir items if they are from the same supplier. Many people find when they actually compare pricing we are often lower priced on the same item.

They make it an easy process to rent a canoe or a kayak, even for for one day. We would use them again.

I always say the more time you spend in Algonquin Park the more wildlife you'll see so it can only get better. With more paddling experience you'll find canoeing is like riding a bike and any unsteadiness will soon disappear. Hope to see you back to Algonquin Park again Familienvater40. ~ Randy M
