The park located at Dorset Tower, which is shown by an online camera, is served by the small town of Algonquin Highlands.
The original tower, where the live broadcast is coming from, was built in 1922. Its height was 25 meters and it was used as a fire observation tower until 1961. The current tower was built in 1967. Its height is 30 meters.

Algonquin Highlands, home to the tower with this webcam, is a town located in Haliburton County, Ontario, Canada. The northeastern part of the town is part of Algonquin Provincial Park.
The city was formed by the merger of Stanhope and Sherborne. Later, such settlements as McClintock, Livingstone, Lawrence and Nightingale joined the alliamce. It was thereafter briefly known as the Township of Sherborne, Stanhope, McClintock, Livingstone, Lawrence and Nightingale until it was renamed to its current name in March 2001.
Ontario, where the online broadcast comes from, is the most populous and second largest province in Canada, which owns two capitals at once: the main city of the province – Toronto and the capital of the country, Ottawa. Due to its large size, Ontario is the starting point for travels to the world’s largest freshwater lake – Upper, Niagara Falls and the polar bear park in the Arctic Circle.
In Ontario, where this webcam is located, is the famous “Uncle Tom’s hut” – the house-museum of the prototype of the famous literary character.
Climate in Ontario ranges from continental in the south to subpolar in the north. The average temperature in winter is +5 degrees, and in summer it is +23 degrees. Weather forecast in Dorset for 7 days is available on our website online.
