Muskoka Lakes

Gibson Lake

Fish: walleye, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, pike
Cottages: Yes

Gibson Lake is directly east of Lake Muskoka along Hwy 38. Access the east side of the lake from Hwy 38 at the town of Gibson. But there is greater access from the west side along Hwy 400. Route 33 will take you to the south shores of the lake and Hiawatha and Causeway Road will get you out to the peninsulas. The Gibson Lake paddling route starts at the south end and can take your right out into Georgian Bay if you like. The walleye fishing is known be good at times and the other common fish is the largemouth and small mouth bass.

Our Lake Ontario list is growing and our goal is to strive to give the most comprehensive list available. If there is a particular lake we missed or you think deserves mention, please Contact Us. We'd love to hear from you.


  • Re: Gibson Lake. Yes, Hiawatha Rd and Causeway Rd will take you out on two peninsulas (sort of), but unless you are a property owner, neither road offers public access or parking for that paddling experience. Only access is at the landing near the south end of the lake on Muskoka Rd 33. Hwy 38 is really Muskoka Road 38. Gibson Lake is actually west of lake Muskoka.
