Morrison Lake is located about 18 km. south and west of Gravenhurst. It is more rounded in shape providing most cottages with excellent views and it has more sandy shoreline than most lakes in the area. Morrison Lake has an average depth of 15 feet but there are pockets 60 feet deep. The lake is fed from a river flowing from Muldrew Lake and at the south end a stream flows into the Severn River. A few nice Muskie linger in the shallows in fall and the residents put them back for the next generation to catch. Bass are also common and the weedy area behind Mile Island is a favorite fishing site. The fishery has the benefit of over 15% of the shoreline being Environmentally Protected as a marsh or bog area.
Morrison Lake is accessed from the Southwood Road, off Hwy #11, with year round roads servicing the north side and a similar south road, but they do not circle the lake. Great sunset views are provided for 70% of those on the lake. The presence of islands, Mile Island being the largest, provide a good boating experience and cruising around the islands with your visitors gives them a sense of why property owners are so proud of their lake. Whether fishing or water skiing you will appreciate Morrison Lake is only 98 miles from Toronto and one of the closest ‘Muskoka’ lakes. About 10% of the properties are now winterized and used year round. There are White pine, Oak and Birch trees in the area. There is more sandy lakefront on the west side of the lake providing more beach area than most Muskoka Lakes.
