Campers who stay in Lafontaine RV Resort are near the town of Midland, which has a most interesting local historical attraction – St. Marie among the Hurons.

This re-creation of Ontario’s first European community offers a glimpse into early Canadian pioneer life in the 1600s. Visitors can participate in interactive educational programs and choose from guided or self-guided tours. The staff is dressed in period clothing, and guests can even samples some foods. It is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. through October 10. The cost of admission is $8.75 for children and $10 for adults.

Le Maitre D

A fantastic eatery, Le Maitre D serves authentic French Canadian dishes in a quiet, intimate ambiance. Try the fresh mushroom soup or Confit de Canard, which is tender, moist duck with blueberry sauce. One reviewer on TripAdvisor said, “I might move from Tucson, AZ to Penetanguishene just so we can eat here on a regular basis!”

Balm Beach

One of the most delightful oases in the area, Balm Beach is a feast for the eyes with its deep blue waters and mountains in the distance. It’s a good place for fishing, picnicking or taking a walk at sunset.
