About Algonquin Outfitters

Since 1961, Algonquin Outfitters has been providing high-quality Algonquin Park backcountry adventures for the entire family. We specialize in all-inclusive guided canoe trips, lightweight canoe rentals and camping packages designed to suit a wide variety of needs and preferences. Relax and let us take care of the details with a custom-guided canoe trip or choose one of our complete outfitting packages and plan your own adventure!

If you’re heading into Algonquin Park, you’ll most likely find one of our canoe trip bases near your destination or along the way. Our stores are conveniently located on Highway #60 at Oxtongue Lake, Lake of Two Rivers and Lake Opeongo. Serving the west side of Algonquin Park and northern Muskoka, our downtown Huntsville store has canoe rentals and camping gear. And, if adventure takes you to the top of the park, you’ll find our Brent base at Cedar Lake on Algonquin’s northern edge.

Algonquin Outfitters’ family of retail stores in Algonquin Park, Muskoka and Haliburton Highlands has a wide range of retail equipment to fuel your adventure, including technical clothing, outerwear and casual wear, road and mountain bikes, canoes, kayaks, camping gear, wakeboards, waterskis and much more.

Several of our stores are open all year round because adventure isn’t just a summer activity; get out and enjoy all four seasons! You’ll find great winter-fun gear at our Huntsville, Bracebridge, Haliburton and Oxtongue Lake locations with equipment like snowboards, Alpine and cross-country skis, as well as snowshoes. Let our experienced and knowledgeable staff help outfit your adventure in the great outdoors today!

For many of us at AO, it’s not so much a job as a way of life.
