Explore the Kawarthas:

The Kawartha Lakes area is situated on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabeg, Huron-Wendat and more recently, the Haudenosaunee peoples. The city’s name is from the Kawartha Lakes. Kawartha is an anglicization of Ka-wa-tha (from Ka-wa-tae-gum-maug or Gaa-waategamaag), which was coined in 1895 by Martha Whetung of the Curve Lake First Nations. It meant “land of reflections” in the Anishinaabe language, according to Whetung. The word was later changed by tourism promoters to Kawartha, meaning “bright waters and happy lands.

Important Tips:

Neighbourhood overview
During the winter, Rice Lake is a prime location for ice fishing. There are cross country ski trails and downhill skiing nearby. All summer you can take advantage of golf courses within a 20 minute drive, and many hiking trails in the surrounding area. Please look at the guide for many activity suggestions. With several forests, provincial and conservation parks, the network of trails and parkland offer great hiking and cycling opportunities.

Getting around

A vehicle is a must as there is no public transportation. Summertime is open for boating and this can be an alternate way to get around if you have a boat available for your own use (Rice Lake Marina is approximately a 5 min. drive to launch your boat where seacraft may be rented).

Other things to note

There is free Wi-Fi, however, due to the remote location, there are often issues with speed and connectivity. There is a smart TV for you to access using your own app accounts, e.g. Netflix. If the internet is important to you for work, TV apps, etc. we suggest you bring your own mobile internet hotspot.
