Algonquin Highlands, Οντάριο, Καναδάς

Kawagama Lake does not have any settlements. The closest town is Dorset, ON.


Kawagama lake is the largest lake in Haliburton county, it does not have any towns or settlements on it. From the northwestern bay (Fletcher Bay) to its southeastern tip (the Hollow River) it is over 16 kilometres (10 mi) in length. In its central area, it is 2.5 kilometres (2 mi). It features 120 km of shoreline, 60% of which is crown land. There is a further 24 km of island shoreline. The maximum depth is 73 meters, the mean depth is 22 meters. There are no settlements on the shores of Lake Kawagama which keeps the water clarity very high, currently at 7.9.

There is one marina on Lake Kawagama: Mountain Trout House Marina, Don and Dawn Abel

The closest location for shopping is in Dorset, 14 kms from the house.
- LCBO 1059 Main St, Dorset,
- Robinson’s General Store, 1061 Main St, Dorset

Dwight, Lake of Bays, Huntsville are all within easy reach.

Kawagama Lake is only minutes from Lake of Bays and Dorset and is one of the best kept secrets in the Dorset area. Much of the lake is Crown Land so there are vast stretches of undeveloped land which gives it more of an Algonquin feel by far than more populated neighboring lakes. This essential difference is what Kawagama residents cherish. It has far less boat traffic and development than Lake of Bays and for these reasons is a more quiet lake overall.

The water quality and clarity is exceptional. The source of Kawagama's water is from lakes edging into the Algonquin Park area. The early name for the lake was Hollow Lake and many locals still refer to it by that name. In fact, the Hollow River, which flows into Lake of Bays, harks back to the original lake name.

Kawagama allows access to two additional lakes; Bear Lake and Kimball Lake. You can navigate the river between Bear and Kawagama with any size boat. Bear is a mid-sized lake with fantastic trout and bass fishing and some extraordinary scenery at the northeast end of the lake. There are soaring cliffs more reminiscent of British Columbia than Ontario, with areas at the base where ice remains long into the spring. Legend has it that the indigenous people of these lands used this for a natural freezer for game preservation. There is a trail that you can hike to the top of the “Bear Mountain” that provides some breathtaking vistas. It’s about a twenty-minute hike through a park-like conifer forest.

The other attraction on Bear Lake is “the falls” which are located directly opposite “Bear Mountain”. This series of pools is a popular picnic spot and frequently used by campers. There is a rope swing and the jumping cliffs. They’re just what the name implies, a place for kids of all ages to take a daring jump or dive. All these fun spots are on Crown Land so accessible for all. The second lake you can access from Kawagama is Kimball Lake which is, again, a mid-sized lake. For access to this lake, you’re limited to an aluminum boat, kayak or canoe. It has the most relaxing approach through the Kimball River, just following the current, looking for wildlife. When you get to the point where it joins Kimball Lake you need a little coordinated help because the slight difference in lake level to river level creates a strong current you either have to paddle through or pull your boat through. Once you’ve done it once, it’s a breeze and the effort is well worth what you’ll find. Kimball is a jewel of a lake with only a handful of cottages and absolutely stunning shoreline. At the east end of the lake is a fabulous beach. Part of the beach is privately owned, the other part is Crown Land with a portage trail leading up into Rockaway Lake in Algonquin Park. An absolutely gorgeous place to enjoy sun and sand with barely any human sounds to intrude. The north shore of Kawagama offers another Crown Land playground called Jeanne Bay. There are rock cliffs that have been the nesting site of bald eagles in the last couple of years. There are also several campsites, one on a rocky point and the other at the foot of the little creek that flows down into Kawagama from the Jeanne Lakes above. The trail between the 2 is only a couple of minutes’ walk and Jeanne Lake is totally untouched.

Apart from exploring Kawagama lake there are many other options in the area.

AREA OUTDOOR ADVENTURES & ACTIVITIES:

ALGONQUIN PARK
Only a 40-minute drive, Algonquin Park provides attractions for all family members from hiking, fishing, camping, educational visits to its Interpretive Centre, and others. It is readily accessible along the scenic routes of Muskoka Road 117. Algonquin Provincial Park is Canada’s first provincial park, established in 1893 and named a national historic site in 1992. It covers some 7700 square kilometers and contains over 2400 lakes and 1200 kilometers of streams and rivers within its borders.

ATV’ING
There are many trails in the Dorset area to accommodate Ontario ATV’ing. Clubs such as the Haliburton ATV Association and ATV Ontario provide safe marked trails for riding.

Before you head out be sure to know the by-laws and highway traffic act in force in the area – All Terrain Vehicles are not allowed on all road-ways.

BIGWIN ISLAND
Once a summer getaway for the wealthy, including movie stars and royalty, Bigwin Island has been brought back from the brink of ruin to be once again enjoyed by visitors far and wide. Located on the largest island on Lake of Bays, the property boasts a world-class golf course, private residences, and amenities, all just a short ferry ride away.

Named after Chief John Bigwin (who was alive at the time of development in the 1920’s) the island developers have preserved the native burial grounds found there. The Bigwin Inn had its heyday in the 1930’s where visitors enjoyed activities in some of the largest buildings in the area. The inn changed hands several times after founder C.O. Shaw died in 1942 and finally closed in 1966. It sat abandoned for decades. Unfortunately, most of the original buildings had to be demolished, but the current owners have continued the vision in Shaw’s original style.

BIGWIN STEAMSHIP
Come and visit the newly refurbished Lake of Bays Marine Museum located on Main Street, by the bridge. You can relive history by taking a cruise on the SS Bigwin during one of its scheduled cruises or for a special event. Learn more about the history of the lake, check out some remarkable local art, and purchase some novelty SS Bigwin items. Go to the Bigwin website for more information on donations, public cruises, private events the calendar of events.

Originally owned by James Kuhn of Pittsburgh, PA, she was named Ella Mary and was personal transportation to their island property on Lake Muskoka. Kuhn lost the island in 1925 and the boat was purchased by the Lake Simcoe Navigation Company for $3,500. She was moved by rail and man-power to South Portage on Lake of Bays and re-named Bigwin where she ferried tourists from Norway Point to Bigwin Inn until the inn was closed in 1966.

The Bigwin sunk in her berth after decades of decay. A group of volunteer firefighters transported her remains to a dry-dock in 1991. It was a 10-year endeavour, but a group of determined fundraisers, shipbuilders, and mechanical specialists envisioned the re-launch of the S.S. Bigwin Ferry on her 100th anniversary.

BIRD WATCHING
For avid bird watchers, the area is teeming with beautiful sights and dozens of species. From tiny Ruby-Throated Hummingbirds to the majestic Blue Heron the colours and varieties abound. Come and test yourself during your next visit.

CAMPING
There are plenty of wilderness camping options. Haliburton Highlands Water Trails provides over 24,000 hectares of land at The Frost Centre located about ten minutes south of Dorset. The Frost Centre serves as a year-round destination for thousands of canoeists, campers, hikers, day-trippers, fishermen, hunters, cottagers, snowmobilers, skiers, and snowshoers providing significant backcountry recreational and conservation values. Permits are required. Contact the Algonquin Highlands Trails Department for more information.

CANOEING / KAYAKING
The area directly around Dorset is dotted with lakes and rivers, many with public access points where you can easily and safely park a vehicle and launch a canoe or kayak.
Dorset boasts some of the most popular canoe routes in the region, located just ten minutes south of town at the Frost Centre. These routes are maintained and monitored by the Haliburton Highlands Water Trails & Tours Net-work. There are several access points located throughout the area and a variety of routes available depending on the desired experience, availability of time, equipment, and level of fitness and skill. The area serves as year-round destinations for thousands of canoeists, campers, hikers, day-trippers, fishermen, hunters, cottagers, snowmobilers, skiers, and snowshoers providing significant backcountry recreational and conservation values. Permits are required.

Algonquin Highlands Trails Department and the Ontario Trails Council is an excellent source to find the various trails in both Haliburton and Muskoka and around the Dorset area.

DORSET HERITAGE WALKING TOUR
This tour will take approximately two hours, but you can spend much longer by taking time at the various sites highlighted on the map (centerfold). Be sure to visit the newest attraction, the S.S. Bigwin, re-launched in July 2010 on her 100th anniversary, following eight hard years of restoration work. She is replete with her own fascinating history. At the other end of town, the Heritage Museum is another spot that should tempt you to spend some extra time.

DORSET PAVILION AND COMMUNITY PARK
Dorset has a beautiful custom timber frame pavilion located on the old school property grounds in the heart of the village! Dorset has a beautiful custom timber frame pavilion located on the old school property grounds in the heart of the village! This is a park for you to enjoy with full-service washrooms (currently being worked on; the Recreation Centre, steps away offers public washrooms). The pavilion is also available for you to rent for that special function (wedding, family reunion, church ceremony). A nominal fee of $50 is required to reserve your day. Please contact the Township of Lake of Bays for more information on booking the pavilion.

DORSET SCENIC LOOKOUT TOWER
You don’t have to wait until the fall to experience the view at the Dorset Scenic Lookout Tower. The observation deck offers a 360-degree view, 142 meters (456 feet) above Lake of Bays. For those that enjoy the view closer to the ground, Peek-a-boo Rock keeps your feet on the ground with a great view across Dorset. At the top of tower hill, there is an information/gift kiosk, picnic tables, and toilet facilities.

The original Fire Tower was built in 1922 and stood 25 metres (82 feet) tall. Access to the top of the tower was up an enclosed ladder. The tower became obsolete in 1962 when aircraft replaced towermen. Many people climbed the tower to enjoy the view. Then, in 1967 the existing tower was built, not for fire watching, but for the spectacular view! This tower stands 30 metres (100 feet) tall with a staircase making it much easier to climb.

To park at the tower there is a per-vehicle charge, season passes are also available. Because parking is limited during our busiest time there is sometimes a waiting time. To avoid long line ups during the fall colour season it is recommended that you visit the tower during the week. Free parking is available at the baseball diamond on Main Street, as well as the parkette located on Highway 35. From both of these areas, it is easy to access to the walking trail that leads to the tower from the base of Tower Hill, just behind the Dorset Heritage Museum. The trail is marked and the walk itself should take about twenty minutes up the less steep trail.

The tower can be visited by snowmobile in winter months. The trail leading there is part of the Tall Pines Snowmobile Club Trail.

Tower use is a “use at own risk” and signs are posted throughout the area. High-risk use of Tower and Mountain is not permitted.

FISHING
The area surrounding Dorset is dotted with dozens of lakes which can be easily accessed from many of our main roads. Many species of fish can be found here including Large and Smallmouth Bass. Ontario residents need an Outdoors Card to fish in Ontario. Immediate temporary cards can be obtained from more than 1,800 license issuers across the province.

GOLFING
Bigwin Island is a short boat ride or car/ferry ride from Dorset. For public play they offer advanced bookings within the calendar year. Public play is available Monday to Friday after 10am and after 2pm on Saturday and Sunday.

WALKING / HIKING TRAILS

ICE FISHING
Whether you are sitting on the ice on a nice sunny day or huddled inside a fish hut, Dorset is the place to be if you enjoy ice fishing! The area lakes are teaming with perch, splake, bass and trout to name a few. Asking the locals where the best place to fish is sometimes difficult because they don’t want to give away their secrets, but if you spy an area where there are several huts then you’ve found a popular spot.

Ontario residents need an Outdoors Card to fish in Ontario. Immediate temporary cards can be obtained from more than 1,800 license issuers across the province or online.

Regulations are different from one lake to the next – be sure you know your catch limit, type of fish, and the number of fishing lines you are allowed to have – before you venture out. Please stay safe – do not wander out onto unfamiliar ice.

SNOWMOBILING
The winter months in Dorset are beautiful and we are generally blessed with lots of snow and good conditions for snowmobiling. The Tall Pines Snowmobile Club is based in Dorset and offers 200km of groomed trails throughout the area. As members of the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs these trails also lead to thousands of kilometres of trails in the province.

For trail conditions and more information contact the Tall Pines Snowmobile Club or check the Muskoka Snowmobile Region Trail Status

Many of the local area marinas have snowmobiles for rent.
