JELLYFISH in Muskoka?

Muskoka Flood 2017: That’s A Peak

We're pleased to report that as of now, aka Sunday April 23 2017, that the Lake Muskoka flood has in fact peaked.  While it was obvious to the eye yesterday, the proof is in the graph! Recall the all time high water flood mark was 402" in 2012.  The 2017 flood was thankfully a full foot shy of it and peaked at 392.08”...which is still well [...]

A Must Do Muskoka Winter Day Trip

Bizarre is the only word thats top of mind with this winter's weather patterns in Muskoka.  In late November I was still boating, top down, in a t-shirt.  December we got walloped in a 48 hour period and it was as picturesque as a snow globe. January started on a chillier edge but between a totally unexpected overabundance of sunshine followed by drizzle - on repeat - I [...]
