Hastings County is the second-largest county in Ontario, and spans from The Bay of Quinte Region in the south, to Algonquin Park in the north.
We’ve got everything for outdoor adventurers including countless lakes, conservation areas and parks, hiking trails, and more! We consider ourselves a four-season playground with lots of activities to enjoy no matter what time of year you arrive.
Approximately 200km from both Toronto and Ottawa, Hastings County is a perfect destination for day-trippers looking to get out of the city. We have charming small towns featuring independently-owned shops and restaurants that ensure a unique and memorable visit!
Hastings County is situated on the traditional territory of many nations including the Huron-Wendat, Anishnaabe, and the Haudenosaunee peoples. Hastings County Council acknowledges our shared obligation to respect, honour and sustain these lands and the natural resources contained within. We honour their cultures and celebrate their commitment to this land. We would also like to acknowledge the Mohawk and Algonquin nations whose traditional and unceded territory we are gathered upon today. Hastings County is situated on treaty land that is steeped in rich Indigenous history and home to many First Nations, Métis and Inuit people.
