About Muskoka River

Our beautiful and friendly town of Bracebridge, Ontario has so much more to offer than one gets to experience when visiting our town. Nature has been kind to us and blessed us with many beautiful lakes,  both large and small for our local community and visitors to enjoy.

The Muskoka River is truly a treat, as it gently meanders near downtown, passes by the popular and well known Santa’s village and flows into the beautiful Muskoka Lake.

The river is dotted with beautiful waterfront properties, that come alive with people socializing or sitting by the docks, reading or  watching  as people go by.

Our intent is to enable our community and visitors, both young and old, to truly enjoy and explore this nature’s gift safely. In return, we also want to give back to nature the respect and care it deserves, so our future generations can also benefit from it’s abundance.

Remember, what you breathe out, the trees breathe in and what the trees breathe out, you breathe in. 

We need each other, so it makes sense to  look after each other
