Within 20 km of Mountain Trout Camp you have the opportunity to visit the Cabot Head Lighthouse.  The mini museum provides info about the area and the history of marine traffic that failed to navigate the dangerous waters of this part of Georgian Bay.  A quick look at the map shows the lighthouse to be extremely close to the campground but keep in mind that in order to travel there, you will have to travel south to Dyers Bay before making your way north again along the shores of Georgian Bay.  It is an extremely picturesque drive if you do have the opportunity to make the trip. 

Trip Advisor Review

“Beautiful lightstation”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 7 October 2014

"We visited Cabot Head Lighthouse for the second time in August of 2014. The drive from Dyers Bay to the lightstation is a little tense for us, as it is a single lane gravel road for several kilometers, with few places wide enough to accommodate meeting cars traveling from the opposite direction. The views on this winding gravel road are simply stunning, though! The lightstation itself is a well preserved historical building, offering an interesting glimpse at life for a lightkeeper and family."
