Located in Central Ontario, Canada, about an hour and a half from Toronto, the large rural region of the Kawartha Lakes offer plenty of green space and historic areas popular among cottage country enthusiasts. The main population centres in the City of Kawartha Lakes include Bobcaygeon, Fenelon Falls, Lindsay, Omemee and Woodville, but there are many more. With so many picturesque villages, plus endless waterways and natural beauty to explore, Kawartha Lakes real estate is understandably desirable.
Sturgeon Lake is located in the heart of this Kawartha Lakes Region. The lake is Y shaped and the surrounding landscape is characteristic of the Great Lakes/St. Lawrence Lowlands.
The bottom of the Y rests above Lindsay with one upper arm of the Y ending at Fenelon Falls in the west where a lock leads to Cameron Lake. The other upper arm of the Y ends at Bobcaygeon to the east with lock access to Pigeon Lake. Sturgeon Point, at the juncture of the lake’s two arms, is known for its historic summer homes and famous yearly Regatta established in 1838.
Sturgeon shoreline ranges from marshy to rocky to sandy. Home to osprey, blue heron, muskie, and pickerel; it’s interesting to note that there have never been sturgeon in this large lake. The origin of its name remains a mystery.
Fenelon Falls, Bobcaygeon and Lindsay are all within a half hour boat ride. You don't need to go through any locks to visit these charming towns. However, if you do choose to go through the locks, you will discover many of the wonderful destinations and majestic scenery that the Trent-Severn Waterway has to offer.
