Waterfront Description & Nearby Activities
The waterfront at Peggy's Point is ideal for young children and doting parents and grandparents. Relax on comfortable Muskoka chairs while watching the youngsters play in the sand. Stay right there on the beach to watch the magnificent sunsets that light up the skies over the lake.
On the other side of the point is a deep water dock in a sheltered bay. - great for teenage dive bombs or mooring your boat. Motor boat rentals are nearby and will deliver right to Maple Lake. Or, enjoy the canoes, paddle boat and row boat that are provided for the free use of guests. There are plenty of life jackets of all sizes.
Explore the forested point that is for the exclusive use of guests. 700 feet of shoreline gives ample opportunities to enjoy the waterfront. A second beach at the end of the point provides variety. And did I mention the fishing? Maple Lake is well known for great fishing for lake trout, bass, white fish and walleye.
The shallow entry beach with hard packed sand extends 150 feet out into the lake. Water volley ball in knee high water bonds families together in a wonderful fun activity.
In winter the shallow entry sandy beach becomes a safe skating rink. Because of the shallow water, this part of the lake freezes quickly and is safe for pond hockey and fun skating. Snow shoes are provided for guests to snow shoe across the lake or on nearby trails.
