Welcome to Three Mile Lake. Since there are, in fact three lakes in the region named Three Mile Lake, we will call this one, Three Mile Lake - Armour. Conveniently located in the Almaguin Highlands region, this particular Three Mile Lake sits just outside the village of Burk’s Falls in the Parry Sound District, 30 minutes north of Huntsville and 60 minutes south of North Bay.
For boating and fishing enthusiasts, Three Mile Lake - Armour is ideal for smaller watercraft. So grab your toys and head out to the lake. Try your hand at water skiing, tubing, and wakeboarding. Or, if calmer activities appeal to you, feel free to enjoy the clear blue waters while you paddle your canoe or kayak around Garden Island. Let the exercise fuel your body, while the view fuels your soul. Then, drop your fishing rod into the water and see what’s biting. Don’t be surprised if you discover any number of fish on your line. Brook trout, northern pike, burbot, smallmouth bass, walleye and largemouth bass all reside in Three Mile Lake - Armour.
If boating and fishing aren’t your thing, let the allure of the crystal clear water tempt you out on a hot summer day. Feel the rush of jumping into the lake off the dock. Spend the day swimming around or hang out on a floating island. There are two small bays in particular — more coves, really — that will offer somewhat secluded areas, ideal for swimming. Try out the smaller cove at the northwestern tip near Sandy Cove Drive, or the larger cove on the eastern part of the lake, near Skyline Drive.
If you want to venture away from the lake, but don’t want to miss out on all of the great water fun at the cottage, Doe Lake Municipal Park is only a short drive away. There, you will find everything you need for a perfect family day at the lake. The park is complete with a paved boat launch, public beach, picnic tables, a BBQ pit, and restrooms. And the fun doesn’t stop there. There is also a beach volleyball area, basketball net, swings and playground equipment. What more could you possibly need? After a relaxing day on the water, take a trip into the village of Burk’s Falls, where you’ll find groceries, amazing local food trucks, local museums and much more.
