Muskoka Lakes

The Township of Muskoka Lakes is cottage country paradise. Miles of boating, natural wonders, a vibrant history and lake-life living attract visitors from around the world.

A land of 80 lakes, including the three big lakes that define the Muskoka experience: lakes Muskoka, Rosseau and Joseph. Enchanting old Muskoka cottages and spectacular boathouses dot their shores. Still, more than 80% of our land retains its natural cover and the municipality maintains 85% of naturally vegetated shoreline. 

Muskoka Lakes is made up of different villages and hamlets from Port Carling, Bala, Windermere to Minett. Natural wonders include the striking geological and biologically diverse Torrance Barrens. It’s also North America’s first dark sky preserve. Along with the hiking trails at the Barrens, nearby Hardy Lake Provincial Park and the Huckleberry Rock Lookout are two more of seven trails not to be missed. In winter, there are trails for snowmobiling, snowshoeing, skiing and skating.
