The Township of the Archipelago covers islands and shoreline of Georgian Bay on Lake Huron. It extends from the Twin Sisters Island north to Charles Inlet and the Naiscoot River, a few miles south of Britt. The northern part includes the village of Pointe au Baril on the mainland, and most of the townships of Shawanaga and Harrison. The southern part consists of Cowper and Conger townships, and the adjacent shoreline and islands. Archipelago's beauty attracts many boaters and vacationers in the summer, and offers a unique way of life year-round. Much of its area is undeveloped Crown land, and a large section is protected in Massassauga Provincial Park.
