North Hastings – something to experience

North Hastings is the northern half of beautiful Hastings County. It extends all the way from just north of Madoc at the County’s centre, to Lake St. Peter in the north, just south of the eastern gate to Algonquin Park. It is an area of rugged natural beauty with rivers, lakes, thick forests, rock faces and an abundance of minerals, all part of the Canadian Shield. It is also a region known for its growing arts and cultural community.

The hub community is the town of Bancroft, but there are other small communities such as Maynooth and Coe Hill that are also rich in history and things to do. It is no wonder that this part of Hastings County offers a variety of “wildly authentic” adventures, something for everyone.

The North Hastings Economic Development Committee is pleased to offer this site to share some of those experiences and to highlight some of the other good things and opportunities happening in North Hastings.
