Have you always wondered what owning your own cottage by the lake would feel like? How relaxing, would it be to sip that much-needed cup of coffee while enjoying stunning lake views? If you’ve started to picture yourself there, let us welcome you to the perfect setting for your daydream. This is Lake Cecebe.
Located in the beautiful Almaguin Highlands, just west of the village of Burk’s Falls, Lake Cecebe has a most unusual shape. With a surface area of over 7 kilometers squared, this lake has a shoreline stretching over 30 km. Just think of the fun and exciting things you can do with that!
Lake Cecebe is home to a fantastic park, Lions Park. The grounds include a playground, picnic tables, a beach and a dock area. It’s a great place to meet friends or spend a day out with the family. The naturally sandy bottom makes swimming a delight, and if fishing is your thing, you will find several species of fish residing in the waters. Rainbow trout, brook trout, lake trout, pickerel, smallmouth bass, and yellow perch are commonly caught in the waters of Lake Cecebe. Boaters will find the local marina and its boat launch at Port Carmen Marina on the north end of the lake.
Lake Cecebe is ideal for boating and water sports of all kinds. Why not grab a canoe or kayak and paddle around Gordon Island or see if the wind is calm enough to try your stand-up paddle board near Clifton Island? Paddle further, and you’ll come to the Magnetawan locks, where Lake Cecebe flows into nearby Ahmic Lake. And if you want to take a break to cool off, the small bays surrounding the lake are perfect for swimming. After a relaxing day on the water, take a trip to nearby Magnetawan or Burk’s Falls, where you’ll find groceries, great local food trucks, and much more.
If you are looking for organized events on the lake, check out The Cecebe Waterways Association. The group hosts several fun gatherings and competitions throughout the season. Recently, the focus has been on the annual golf tournament, poker run and regatta. The annual Les Naftel Golf Tournament kicked off the season in July at The Ridge Golf Course in Sundridge. It was a chance for cottagers and guests to get together for some fun on the links. Also scheduled over the summer was the Annual Regatta and Poker Run. Both events were designed for some family-friendly fun in and on the water, featuring swim, canoe/kayak and sailing races, a highly competitive triathlon and more. This weekend, The Cecebe Waterways Association marks the end of the season with a Corn Roast. Sound like fun?
