Cottage Location

Activities Nearby

Footprints Resort is located on South Baptist Lake Rd., Highland Grove in the Hastings Highlands, just outside Bancroft, Ontario. Due to the private nature of our resort, the exact address is given upon booking your vacation with us.

Aside from all the activities provided and things to do at Footprints, the area boasts endless activities and adventures including spas, art & theater, horseback riding, cycling & hiking, rafting, shopping, golfing, antiquing, ghost towns and much, much more!

Footprints is located at the southern tip of Algonquin Park, the first provincial park in Ontario. The park protects a variety of natural, cultural, and recreational features and values. As one of the largest provincial parks, Algonquin is diverse and offers something for nearly everyone. Glaciers that receded ten thousand years ago created the distinctive rock outcroppings and spring-fed lakes of Algonquin. These mountains of ice have left the park with a rough, stark beauty. This majestic park is a short 20 minutes away, is awe-inspiring and completely peaceful with the incredible beauty of nature. Come experience the Algonquin grandeur, with all its fresh clean air, deep blue skies, rich green forests and hundreds of pristine lakes.

Footprints is a self-catering resort, but if you would like a romantic fine dining experience, there are a number of great restaurants nearby.

With over 800 lakes and hundreds of kilometers of rivers and streams in the vicinity, Bancroft and surrounding area offer a rich fishing environment. Bring your own kayak, canoe or boat and launch it at one of our larger, neighboring lakes for a day on the water.
