The Township of Lake of Bays offers more than 100 pristine lakes for you to enjoy waterfront recreation and stunning views. Lake of Bays, for which the township is named, is the 2nd largest lake in Muskoka, with 170 kilometres of shoreline. Within the lake are more than a dozen islands – including Pancake and Peanut Islands. The area’s welcoming communities (Baysville, Dorset, Dwight and Hillside), and beautiful scenery, make it a popular destination, summer and winter.
About 2.5 hours north of Toronto, in the northeastern corner of the Muskoka region, Lake of Bays Township was established in 1971 as one of six municipalities within the district of Muskoka. In the early 20th century, several resort hotels opened on the lake and became destinations for celebrities.
There’s always something to enjoy in Lake of Bays –boat cruises, scuba diving, kayaking, canoeing, golfing, snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing and of course, swimming.
Experience the dark crystal waters, majestic forest and rugged granite outcrops of Lake of Bays. You may never want to leave.
