    Gravenhurst

    by l_riva_l Updated Jun 5, 2005

    The two larger towns on the Muskokas are Gravenhurst and Bracebridge. Gravenhurst is the most southerly and the first you would approach if you were coming in from Toronto.

    In town you would find all you need for your cottage stay, i.e. groceries, propane, harware, etc.

    The Lakes

    by l_riva_l Updated Jun 5, 2005

    Muskoka, Rosseau and Joseph, are interconnected deepwater lakes (100 meters deep at points), Rosseau being to the northeast and Joseph to the northwest of lake Muskoka. There are numerous islands on the lakes, ranging from the very large to ones too small to support even a single cottage (as the one pictured).

    The hemlock

    by l_riva_l Written Jun 5, 2005

    The basic tree that dominates the shoreline is the hemlock. It is an attractive but somewhat inconspicuous species.

    The marinas

    Walkers Point

    The marinas provide the access to the numerous cottages on the lakes' islands. The boats are (fork) lifted from the water at the end of the season and stored for the winter.
