Lake Muskoka is the largest of the big three lakes with 269 km's of shoreline. This lake is fed by Lake Joseph, Lake Rosseau and the Indian River through the locks in Port Carling, and the Muskoka River through the falls at Bracebridge. It then flows into Moon River at Bala, emptying into Georgian Bay. Located between Port Carling and Gravenhurst it lies primarily within the Township of Muskoka Lakes.
Many islands can be found on the lake with a total island shoreline of 209 km's. Lake Muskoka has a maximum depth of 75 metres and is home to Millionaires Row which can be seen in Beaumaris located just outside of Milford Bay. This area grew rapidly when the railroad reached Gravenhurst in 1875. Still today there are many famous people who call Muskoka home for the summer.
Only an hour and a half from the GTA and easily accessible from every direction because of its size, Lake Muskoka is a well sought after summer destination. In fact, National Geographic rated the Muskoka area as the number 1 summer destination in 2011. This year, Muskoka made the top 20 list of must travel destinations in the world.
There is something for everyone on Lake Muskoka including public beaches, boat launches and a sailing camp. Taboo Resort has numerous facilities including golf, spa, swimming pool, fitness, tennis, dining, a sandy beach and accommodations. The Wharf in Gravenhurst, accessible by auto or boat hosts restaurants and a public boat launch.
