Top Reasons to Visit Kawartha Lakes

The Houseboat Capital of Ontario

Take your family or get away with a group of friends for a perfect vacation on the Trent-Severn Waterway, the Houseboat Capital of Ontario. A houseboat vacation gives you all the freedom to choose your own adventure, all at your own pace and leisure. Take all the comforts of home with you on the water, navigating the lock system from lake to lake, stopping for lunch along the way in Bobcaygeon or grilling up your own in the middle of the lake! Swim, paddle, stargaze, and cast your line right from the boat. Make some stops along your route and discover the charming and quaint towns and villages. You can even head to shore to go to the theatre, check out a concert, visit a farmers market, or do some retail therapy at some of the many unique stores and shops.
