Discover Muskoka: Plan Your Trip

Lake of Bays

The Township of Lake of Bays is an outdoor enthusiast’s oasis in the northeastern section of Muskoka, adjacent to world-renowned Algonquin Park.

Three vibrant and inviting communities of Baysville, Dorset, and Dwight offer a variety of dining, galleries, and specialty shops, and each has their own self-guided Heritage Tour.

The Township is home to Lake of Bays, one of the largest lakes in Muskoka, which provides four-season fun from boating and paddle boarding to snowmobiling and ice fishing. The Township boasts picturesque landscapes, over 100 pristine lakes, unique cottage resorts, distinct cultural attractions, and outdoor activities for every season.

Historically known as a summer playground, Lake of Bays is also a sparkling, white wonderland for winter sports enthusiasts and each village hosts a unique winter festival on weekends throughout February – not to be missed!
