Wenonah’s main Camp area is comprised of 100 acres of spectacular wilderness, including 24 acres of pristine untouched wilderness across our back lake, set in the heart of the rugged Muskoka woods. The Camp property features 4000 feet of shoreline on two lakes adjacent to Wenonah (Clear Lake and Saw Lake). Beyond the Camp lies thousands of acres of Crown Land, providing guests with tremendous opportunities for hiking and canoe tripping experiences.

All facilities at Camp Wenonah meet and exceed the highest standards of the local Health and Fire Departments, and the Ontario Camps Association.

We offer a site and facility maintained in excellent condition and featuring highly-developed program areas.

A large deck runs the length of the Lodge, overlooking Clear Lake. Often, one will find guests playing at the ping pong tables on the deck, or lounging with their friends in a cluster of Muskoka chairs.

The kitchen is attached to the dining area of the Main Lodge. You can often catch the smell of freshly baked bread and pastries wafting from the kitchen in the early morning, or look through the serving window to see the finishing touches being added to a delicious dinner.
