In the summer of 1991 the Ministry of Natural Resources did some extensive aerial photography of the entire Rideau Lakes area, including Otter lake. The image below is a composit of some of those photpgraphs. The original images were again made available to us by RVCA. If you click on the image you will be able to view the lake at much higher resolution and will have no difficulty in identifying your cottage or home. However this is by no means the maximum resolution of these images. At maximum resolution it would be possible to identify your boat and dock and probably a car in your driveway if you were in residence when the photo was taken. Unfortunately these high resolution images are too large to post on this website but are available if you contact the webmaster.
     The image clearly shows that Otter Lake was well established as a recreational area by 19991. The only shorelines that were not delevopped are the areas of the lake that were then and still are, designated as wetlands.
