Welcome to Butterfly Lake, a tranquil lake just minutes from Port Carling. The lake is easy to find, located at the intersection of Highway 118 West and Muskoka District Road 169.
Summer may be over, but Butterfly Lake is still the ideal place to relax and enjoy the beauty of Muskoka. While you may not lay back on your private dock, soaking up the sun’s rays during the day, you can still put on a light sweater and hang out on the dock admiring the scenery. And the nights aren’t yet cold enough to stop you from gathering around the fit pit in the evening with your friends and family to enjoy a nice cold beverage. You will appreciate the peace and quiet that Butterfly Lake offers its visitors. The area is full of wildlife and natural breathtaking scenery. So why not take a walk around the lake, along Butterfly Road and take it all in?
If you’re looking to get active, Butterfly Lake is great for boating. So hop in your boat and head out to the middle of the lake. A healthy fish population made of northern pike, smallmouth bass, yellow perch, and largemouth bass live within the depths of the lake. So, drop your line into the water and see what’s biting.
Water sports enthusiasts will enjoy the small little inlets that are a part of Butterfly Lake. An early morning canoe or kayak trip is more intriguing when you can take in the beautiful Muskoka sunrise along the way. So paddle out around the lake and check out the view from Whites Island.
When the weather turns cold and the snow starts to gather, a serene Butterfly Lake becomes even more so. But that doesn’t mean the fun has to end. There are snowmobile trails nearby, so you have easy access to one of the best winter pastimes in Muskoka. And there’s also snowshoeing, skiing, skating, and even winter disk golf approximately an hour away at Huntsville’s Deerhurst and Hidden Valley Resorts.
No matter the season, you’ll want to venture out into the picturesque town of Port Carling. You’ll find several restaurants and a multitude of shops to explore. Whether it’s a delicious meal, items you need for the cottage or trendy gifts for the family and friends at home, you are sure to find it there.
