The Kawarthas

Eganridge is located in the heart of the Trent-Severn Waterway, North America’s most popular inland pleasure boating waterway. The Trent-Severn connects Lake Ontario with Georgian Bay by way of lakes and canals that pass through Canadian Shield scenery.

Away from the lakes and locks are several outstanding art galleries, professional theatre, antique shops, and an excellent pioneer village with working mill. As well, the Forbert Memorial Pool only 5 minutes away. Use this link for hours and location.

The following are just a taste of Kawartha’s riches:

bullet The Kirkfield Lift Lock and Peterborough Lift Lock (the world’s largest Lock, which also has an observation room and museum) are only two of many places to boat-watch.
bullet Curve Lake First Nation, home to the Mississauga, is well-known for art galleries, a native-foods restaurant and an annual Pow-Wow.
bullet The Buckhorn Wildlife Art Festival in August draws visitors from around the world for exhibits by dozens of artists.
bullet Lang Pioneer Village has a five-storey stone mill that is in full operation; the village also has special events year-round.
bullet The Academy Theatre in Lindsay is Ontario’s oldest venue for live theatre. The theatre features a summer festival of professional drama, comedy and musicals. We are happy to arrange for theatre tickets.
bullet Petroglyphs Provincial Park protects and interprets rock carvings etched by Aboriginal people long before European settlement.
bullet Bobcaygeon and Fenelon Falls are treasure-troves for shoppers, with dozens of quality antique stores, art galleries and boutiques. Each village also has a museum devoted to local history.
