Couples resort is located on the shores of Galeairy Lake, with direct access to Algonquin Park. Originally named Long lake which was renamed to Galeairy Lake because the lake borders Nightengale and Airy townships.
Galeairy Lake is 11 kilometres (7 miles) long, land locked and extends mostly inside the boundaries of Algonquin Park . Explore the many secluded coves by canoe or kayak and search for loons, beaver, otter and moose. Pull up on shore, have a picnic and go for a swim.
Swimming in this lake is great. It is very clean and safe, with water temperatures hitting 25C (78F) by the end of July. Typically the lake temperature is above 18C (70F) from the third week of June to the first week of September.
