From stunning vistas to lush forests, the High Level area offers enough spectacular scenery to keep a shutterbug busy for days. And with autumn well upon us, the fall foliage adds an extra touch of beauty to the surroundings.

So we were happy to hear about the "What I Love About The High Level Area" photo challenge, which aims to showcase some of the finest pictures from our region. The contest wraps on Oct.26, followed by a local gallery showing on Nov.7.

But if you’re not from here, you may not know about all the scenic places you can find in High Level. So here are 4 photogenic settings you might want to check out.

Fox Haven Golf & Country Club
The lush manicured grounds of this golf course provide a spectacular spot to snap a few photos. If you’re not too preoccupied trying to make that putt. 

The well-maintained course is all about tranquility, with ducks bobbing on the water hazards and stands of aspen framing the greens. The country club is stunning during the spring and summer, but offers some uniquely beautiful scenery in early fall when the leaves start to turn. This course often stays open until after the Thanksgiving weekend, depending on conditions.

High Level Community Park
Tucked amid a thick forest, this local gem is packed with photographic potential. There’s a fenced dog park, two baseball diamonds and a popular fish pond that was restocked with trout earlier this year. With the right timing, you might even snap an action shot of someone reeling in a big one.

Hutch Lake Recreation Area
This long, narrow lake was created when a dam was built at its north end. Now, it’s a hotspot for both locals and travelers looking for a wilderness escape.

Located about 35 kilometres north of High Level, the Hutch Lake Recreation Area offers a small campsite along with a boat launch, day-use sites and fire pits. The area is very clean and offers soothing landscape views year-round.

Machesis Lake Campground
Set about 25 kilometres east of High Level, this serene spot is framed by Jack Pine and Spruce trees. Like Hutch Lake, you’ll discover a well-maintained campsite and a day-use area here. But keep your camera close – the area offers plenty of opportunities for wildlife and birdwatching.

Hang out on one of two docks, popular spots to try trout fishing, or explore some of the nearby paths.

And once you’ve had your fill of photo ops, settle into a comfortable room at one of our surprisingly affordable High Level hotels
