Skeleton Lake

Although Skeleton Lake is the fourth largest lake in Muskoka, Skeleton Lake contains the largest open body of water in all the Muskoka Lakes. It is one of the most pristine lakes left in Ontario, and is often considered the jewel of Muskoka. Many cottagers love this spring-fed lake for its crystal-clear water and abundance of rocky headlands and islands. It also boasts over 30 islands waiting to be discovered. For the boating enthusiast, the shoreline has an abundance of coves and inlets to explore. Skeleton Lake is the perfect spot for boating, canoeing, sailing, fishing, snorkelling, swimming, diving rocks, or just listening for the call of the loon.

Skeleton Lake was formed by the impact of a meteor, which accounts for its somewhat circular shape and great depth. That is also the reason for the limestone bottom, which gives the lake its famous clarity - some of the clearest in all of Canada. On a calm day it is possible to see up to 30+ feet underwater with the naked eye.

There are many species of fish that inhabit this lake, which include smallmouth bass, lake trout, speckled trout, brown trout, rock bass and walleye.


Muskoka Region

The beautiful Muskoka region, which is located about 2 hrs. north of Toronto, is bounded by Georgian Bay on one side and Algonquin Park on the other. Muskoka is among the worldís celebrated lakelands. The area was discovered by Samuel de Champlain in 1615. The name Muskoka is an English corruption of the Ojibwa name of the chief Mesqua Ukie.  The region features many scenic lakes surrounded by wooded hills and granite rock and offers a wide range of activities year round to suit all tastes and age groups. The unique character and natural beauty of Muskoka draw people from around the world.

Four distinct seasons provide many outdoor opportunities year-round. We are in the snow belt for great winter ski and snowmobiling conditions. We also have long spring and fall transition periods when nature shows off its grandeur on the many walking trails.
