About Skeleton Lake

Known as 'Muskoka's Best Kept Secret', in the heart of Muskoka, Skeleton Lake offers sandy swimming coves, great fishing, water sports, hiking and warm summer sunsets.

Skeleton Lake is one of the largest. It has a circumference of about 25 miles and has been called the clearest lake in Canada. Unlike most of the area lakes, which are souvenirs of the glacial age, Skeleton is believed to have formed as a result of a meteorite impact. Being a spring-fed lake, it is very, very clear and on calm days one can easily see down to depths of 20 or more meters.

There is much to explore. A short distance around the lake is hiking trails, a waterfall, children's camp and shallow public beach with picnic tables.

Fishing is great: summer or in winter

Check in: 6:00 p.m.

Check out: 11:00 a.m.

Skeleton Lake is 10 minutes from Diamond in the Ruff Golf Course, as well as a 18-20 minute scenic ride to the villages/towns of Port Carling, Rosseau, Bracebridge and Hunstville where you can enjoy exploring all of the quaint shops, restaurants, live theatre, craft shows and summer time markets. (Bracebridge's popular Santa's Viillage is a 25 min. drive away).

Out and about, Arrowhead and Algonquin Parks offer more nature to those who can't get enough. The town of Huntsville is itself a huge art gallery, with Group of Seven murals hung on more than 20 buildings in the area. Golfers will want to spend a day at Diamond in the Ruff, Deerhurst Highlands or Deerhurst Lakeside. Anglers might be interested in spending a day at Lake Vernon with a Hooked Young fishing tour. Check out the program at the Algonquin Theatre during your stay, although if it's something you want to see, it's best to buy your tickets well in advance. In winter, snowmobiling and cross country skiing are at your doorstep, and Hidden Valley Ski Resort is just 40 km away.
