This Interactive Online Vacation Map covers the area from Huntsville, Ontario in the northwest toward Dwight and Dorset in the east. The towns of Baysville and Port Sydney to the south of Huntsville and Dwight are also pictured. This area is considered by many to be a part of the area of Muskoka.

Lake of Bays is located in the northeast corner of the District of Muskoka. The economy is based primarily on tourism, as their population grows from a permanent residence of 3,000 to seasonal of 18,000.
Huntsville is named after Captain George Hunt who settled in the area in 1869. Growth in this area is largely due to the building of the locks on the Muskoka River and the logging of Algonquin Park. The logging industry and the Ontario Junction Railway both helped Huntsville become what it is today. Huntsville currently has a population of over 18,000 and is the fastest growing community in Muskoka.
Baysville was first surveyed in 1862 by Robert Burns. William H. Brown was the town's founder and built the downstream lumbermill. The road from Bracebridge to Baysville was built in 1873.

Today, Baysville is becomming known for its local art. Several art galleries and studios are well worth your time to visit.
