Lake Joseph is situated west of and flows into Lake Rosseau where the two connect at the narrows of Port Sandfield and the Joseph River. It is deepest at 93 metres in the north end. Smallest of the three lakes, Lake Joseph has a total of 140 km's of perimeter shoreline and 91 km's of island shoreline. Out of approximately 1,500 lakeshore properties, I estimate the average property has 467' of frontage. Lake Joseph lies within two townships, Muskoka Lakes and Sequin Township which is in the district of Parry Sound.
The waters of Lake Joseph are crystal clear as it is mostly spring fed. The clarity level is 6.7 metres, the best of the big three lakes. This makes for great snorkeling, scuba diving, swimming and fishing. It is known for its Northern Pike, Lake Trout, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, Muskellunge and Lake Whitefish.
A specialized summer camp is offered at the CNIB Lake Joseph Centre and the Lake Joseph Yacht Club offers sailing lessons. Home to two Club Link golf courses, Rocky Crest and the Lake Joe Club, can be accessed by boat and have waterfront and clubhouse dining. The Sherwood Inn offers accommodation, fine dining and a great game of shuffle board. You can access several marinas and churches from this lake. Tie up your boat at Port Sandfield and grab an ice cream or any other necessities at Silver Streams and check out the shops and marina.
Lake Joseph may be a little further than Lake Muskoka but it is definitely worth the extra few minutes. Heading toward Lake Joseph via auto or boat you will marvel at the scenery of twisted pine and rock faces reminiscent of the Group of Seven paintings.Contact Me.
