The River. Long a symbol of passage, a means of transportation, a subject of song. The river flows. At the Hub of the Lakes (Port Carling) the river is the connection between Lake Muskoka and Lakes Rosseau and Joseph. It's called the Indian River because on its banks, when traders, trappers and lumbermen came north, [...]

Photo credit: John Panikkar MarketWATCH Muskoka: 24 April 2019 Think of the hockey pool, football pool, even 'chase the ace'. Excitement, interest and the stuff that water cooler chat is made of.

Someone flicked the switch. September 22 summer ended with a thump.

With temps in the high 20's and humidity taking the 'feel' of the day even higher, this Labour Day's experience in Muskoka was more like mid-summer. In some parts even the lake wasn't all that refreshing. Swimming from the boat in the deep was the way to go if you wanted to cool off. Off [...]
