The Township of Muskoka Lakes is situated at the southern tip of the Canadian Shield. Within its 782 square kilometres lie 80 lakes, including the three large lakes that first defined the Muskoka experience: Lake Rosseau, Lake Joseph and Lake Muskoka. The resorts that evolved on their shores established Muskoka’s reputation as a destination that could heal the body and rejuvenate the spirit. That legacy continues to this day.
In spite of the popularity of the locale for permanent and seasonal homes, over 80 per cent of the land mass retains its natural cover. The municipality also maintains over 85 per cent naturally vegetated shoreline. The municipality has encouraged positive growth, while at the same time has protected the character and natural beauty of the area.
Anchored by the larger communities of Bala, Port Carling and Windermere, the municipality offers the sophistication of a popular tourism destination, plus the wholesomeness of country living. With miles of boating and superb quality of life, the Township of Muskoka Lakes hosts visitors from around the world. Many return year after year because no matter where they call home, the Township of Muskoka Lakes is the place they’d rather be.
