Welcome to Bernard Lake. You may have heard of it referred to as Lake Bernard as well. Regardless of what you call it, Bernard Lake is an oddity among Muskoka lakes. Located near Burk’s Falls and on the shores of Sundridge. it is one of the larger freshwater lakes without an island. Large in comparison to the majority of Ontario’s thousands of lakes, it is also surprising that Bernard Lake is not connected to any other lake. 

A large portion of this lake features sandy shores and shallow waters; and the beautifully clear water makes this lake a pleasure to swim in. So grab your swimsuit and jump into the waters of Checkerboard Beach. For the more adventurous sort, grab your snorkel and discover what’s underneath the surface of the water. Or take a…

Welcome to Three Mile Lake. If you are experiencing a sense of deja-vu, don’t worry. We have mentioned Three Mile Lake before.

Welcome to Sand Lake, located in the middle of the Almaguin Highlands, less than 10 kilometers from the town of Kearney and 30 kilometers from the larger Burk’s Falls. The lake is ironically named, as a large portion of the shore is rocky not sandy. The rocky nature of the shoreline can be attributed to runoff water erosion. There is good news though, a good portion of the shallow waters around the shore remain sandy, as the name of the lake suggests.

If you are lucky enough to find one of the naturally sandy bottom spots that make swimming a delight, stake your claim quickly. Kick back and spread out on the sand and soak up some rays. You might find these prime parts of the lake a little busier, especially for other swimmers. 

If fishing is…

Every Canada Day, for the past 20 years, we have planted small Canadian flags on the front lawns of homes in our Bracebridge and Gravenhurst communities. This small gesture reflects the immense pride and appreciation of being Canadian and living in this great country.

The recent discovery of unmarked graves on former residential school sites in Kamloops, B.C., and Cowessess First Nation, Sask., has shaken our nation. It has shone further light on the widespread and systematic abuse that Indigenous people faced (and continue to face) in our country.

While every Canadian is free to celebrate Canada Day on their terms, this year will be a time of reflection and observance and less about revelry for many. With this in mind, we've decided to…
