Welcome to Silversands Family Resort !

We are located in the South Area of Almaguin Highlands, West of Algonquin Park, North of Huntsville, East of Hwy.11, at end of Hwy. 518, on Sand Lake 10 km north of Kearney.
Our beautiful, peaceful location with natural sand beach gradually slopping making swimming safe for even the youngest of children, will offer you a vacation that you will want to return to again.
Stroll through the miles of wooded lands surrounding the resort, picking wild blueberries, raspberries and mushrooms as you wish.  Explore the waterways on canoes, motorboats or kayaks and watch the loons and ducks.  Catch trout, perch, whitefish or small mouth bass. Bike or ATV through the network of graveled country roads that butt up next to Algonquin Park!
Who knows -  you may be lucky and see a moose, deer, bear or just feed the squirrels and chipmunks so bring your camera. The scenery in the Near North with many lakes and rivers is breathtaking. Relax and enjoy the clean air and beauty of nature. As summer ends, enjoy the splendor of the Fall colours and Indian Summer - a truly breathtaking sight. It is beautiful here in winter. There is 260 km of groomed snowmobile trails on the Almaguin District Snowmobile Club System, cross country skiing , ice fishing and hunting. Owners are registered outdoor license/permit distributors.
