Introducing Stewart Lake
Stewart Lake is located in both the Township of Muskoka Lakes and the Township of Georgian Bay. Like several lakes in the region, the surrounding area features rolling hills and granite bedrock commonly known as Pre-Cambrian Shield.
Activities on the lake
Stewart Lake is the perfect place to relax and unwind. You can lounge on your dock and enjoy the gorgeous sunsets. Or gather around the fire pit with friends and enjoy the breathtaking view of the starry night sky.
Stewart Lake is also a water enthusiast’s dream, with its calm and clear waters. Take your kayak or canoe out and explore Dolly Island, or head over to the public beach in Mactier. There you’ll find a refreshing swim, picnic area, and playground for the kids.
Exploring the area
If you’re up for some off-water fun, downtown Mactier houses various local shops and dining options. Stop by Chef Henrie’s Bistro for an unforgettable meal; their menu changes weekly, so you’re in for a treat every time you visit.
