Geography of Muskoka Lakes

The Township of Muskoka Lakes encompasses a large geographic area around Lake Muskoka, Lake Rosseau and Lake Joseph. Within the 781.6 sq kilometres lie 80 lakes. The natural beauty of the shorelines and the abundance of wildlife make Muskoka Lakes a pre-eminent tourism destination. While the Canadian Shield is a challenge to farmers, pockets of tillable land support a significant agricultural economy.

Whether you prefer small communities, rural areas, country settings or waterfront properties, Muskoka Lakes has it all. The municipality has encouraged positive growth, while at the same time protecting the historic significance, character and natural beauty of the area. The communities of Bala and Port Carling are the largest urban centres. Bala is located at the confluence of Lake Muskoka and the Moon River. Port Carling is situated between Lakes Rosseau and Muskoka.

Depending where you live in Muskoka Lakes Township you will find yourself relatively close to major towns such as Gravenhurst, Bracebridge, Huntsville and Parry Sound. The city of Barrie is about an hour’s drive away, while North Bay, Sudbury and Toronto are easily accessible in two and a half hours.
