Stoney and Clear Lake have many high end homes/cottages on the lake making it one of the more higher priced waterfront lakes in the area. Because of its proximity to Peterborough and it’s amenities and hospital lots of owners live full time on the lake.
Stoney Lake is situated approximately 18 km north east of Lakefield up Hwy 28. Clear Lake is situated approximately 9 km north east of Lakefield up Hwy 28. It is located approximately 2 hours from the GTA.
There are three interconnected lakes (Upper Stoney Lake to the northeast, Stony Lake in the centre, and Clear Lake to the southwest) which together are known as Stony or Stoney Lake. Stoney Lake forms the eastern end of the Kawartha lakes region. It is primarily a summer cottage area but there are many permanent residences on the lakes and permanent living on the lake is becoming more popular.
Stoney Lake was known to early European settlers as Salmon Trout Lake, but the modern name is fully appropriate. Salmon trout are no longer evident, but islands and shoals are everywhere. Today, Stoney Lake represents the classic Ontario ‘cottage country’, enjoyed by its many seasonal residents, by an increasing number of year-round residents, by boaters using the Trent-Severn Waterway, sport fishermen and many others.
Some of the types of fish species found in the lake are Bluegill, Muskellung and Smallmouth Bass.
The maximum depth of the lake is approximately 105 ft or 32 m. It is home to more than 1,000 islands. There are many marinas and restaurants on the lake so if you want to boat for a night out there are several options available to you.
