Summer time means opening up the cottages and basking in the glorious sun.  Minden Hills is home to over 25 lakes and rivers, providing plenty of opportunities to swim, boat, and fish.  With numerous boat launches, touring the waterways is easier than ever.  Not all seasonal residents have access to the water so they go to one of the local beaches to enjoy the sun and refreshing water.

No summer is complete without roasting marshmallows by a bonfire.  To view the regulations and to see if there is a burn ban, visit the Emergency & Fire Services page.

Looking for entertainment while on your summer break?  Visit our events calendar for ideas about what to do.  Our summers are full of events like the Truck Pull, Canada Day celebration, Bluegrass Festival, and County Fair.

Whether you stay a few days or the entire summer, you will likely have waste that will need to be disposed of properly.  Please consult the Cottage Kit for information about how to properly discard of waste.


Seasonal residents are able to vote in the Minden Hill Municipal Election.  During an election year, information will be posted on the website that will provide information about long distance voting.
