Lake of Bays

Lake of Bays is a township within the District Municipality of Muskoka, Ontario, Canada. The township, situated 193km north of Toronto, is named after the Lake of Bays.Located in the northeast corner of Muskoka, the Lake of Bays offers a natural landscape of forests, rocks, lakes and wetlands. It is an important cottaging, recreation and tourism destination in Ontario. Currently, the economy of the township is primarily based on tourism, recreation, and the service sector with forestry and aggregate (composite) extraction contributing as well.HistoryThe Township of Lake of Bays was established in 1971 from the former Townships of Franklin, Ridout, McLean and Sinclair/Finlayson as one of six area municipalities within the District of Muskoka.In the early 20th century several grand resort hotels opened on the lake, among them the Wawa and the Bigwin Inn, a resort that operated on Bigwin Island from 1920 until the late 1960s. These hotels were sought after destinations for many rich and famous individuals and groups at the time, including Hollywood stars like Clark Gable, writers like Ernest Hemmingway and, during the Second World War, the Dutch royal family.
