Stunning views and very peaceful

Trail is easy and sign posted. Offers stunning views of the lake. If you going around summer watch out for bugs.. I did the Hardy Lake trail and would recommend it!

This is the best of the three lakes in my opinion. Gravenhurst is a quaint small town with lots of amenities. You can rent boats, jet skis or take a cruise of the lakes. It's not a fishermans lake, but a true cottage lake. Spend a week and just relax.

So much to see and do. Lake Muskoka connects to two larger lakes via locks so you can boat for days. Take a trip on Canada's losers steam ship from Gravenhurst wharf , bring your own boat to one of the many Marian's or rent so many options. Public beaches and walking trails all around. A must visit in beautiful... More

We stayed for three days in Gravenhurst, which was plenty. The best city on the lake was Bala, with a great Farmer's market and a top infrasructure (bakery, butcher, art stores) for such a small town. We swam in the lake at the Gravenhurst beach (supervised) and near the gold course (very, very shallow). The water was nice. There are... More

We visited friends on Lake Muskoka. The lake was so clean and beautiful. We liked it so much we are thinking of getting a cabin next year.

If you can, be sure to get out on the water when you are in this area. It is beautiful and if you aren't from the area it was particularly enjoyable to see what Ontario cottage country is all about.

I am from Texas and I have to admit that we have nothing like this in our great state! The waters are abundant and they are navigable for hundreds of miles. There are lovely cottages and boathouses lining the shores that have been single family owned for decades! There is a true love for the waters in Ontario and the... More

As an Aussie, the thought of jumping off a pier without fear of sharks is very tempting. We have friends here with a cottage on the lake so we are here for a couple of weeks boating, eating and swimming. The lake is cool for us and the weather changeable however the landscapes and sunsets are magnificent. The local town... More

1) Largest of the numerous granite based lakes in Muskoka, with very long vistas in endless bays to explore. 2) Passing through the locks in Port Carling to Lake Rosseau is a neat experience for adults and children. 3) 8-10 dining destinations on Lake Muskoka with free docking. Enjoy
