Have you ever been to Bob's Lake in Ontario, Canada? Each year, my family makes the long voyage from PA into Ontario and stays at a cabin on Bob's Lake. We've been doing this since 1988, and it's a tradition that will be hard to break. Bob's Lake is a beautiful place to take a vacation to, and activities such as fishing, swimming, boating, and camping are fun ways to spend your vacation there. Bob's Lake is a great place to make memories.

Where Is It Located?

Bob's Lake is located near Westport, Ontario, Canada. When coming across the US/Canada border at the Thousand Islands Bridge, it's about and hour and a half away. It's mainly paved roads, but to get to some of the cabins you will need to travel on dirt and back roads.

What Can I Do There?

Bob's Lake offers many warm and cold weather activities for the whole family to enjoy. For those of you that prefer the warmer weather, you may enjoy fishing, boating, swimming and more in the lake. Bob's Lake features a variety of fish that you can hook on to including rock bass, perch, bluegills, large and small mouth bass, pike, walleye, and lake trout. Tired of fishing? Jump into the lake for a quick dip to cool off, or hook up the tube or water ski's behind the boat and have a blast! There are many cottages and cabins to stay in right along the lake, so if being out on the water isn't your thing, stay back at camp and enjoy a relaxing view. You can also head into Westport or travel to Kingston to get in some shopping.

If you prefer the colder weather, you can also try your luck at fishing, just make sure to bring all of your ice fishing supplies with you! You can also lace up your skates and go ice skating, or trailer the snowmobile and hit some high speeds across the lake.

Along with the Loon, you will see beautiful sunrises and sunsets. In the summertime, you will be able to enjoy the abundance and length of the daylight hours.

      It looks like a lovely spot at Bob's Lake not unlike my regular holiday spot at Beausli Island on Georgian Bay which I just came back from this past weekend. My main supplies that are a must to pack is my 50-70 sunblock and bug repellant everything else is secondary. Your spot is a much more secluded and private spot looks like a great place to spend some downtime. Thanks for sharing bye for now!
