More Area Information
Morrison Lake is located about 18 km. south and west of Gravenhurst. It is more rounded in shape and 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. Long views are provided from almost all properties. The presence of islands, Mile Island being the largest, provide a good boating experience and cruising around the islands with visitors gives them a sense of why property owners are so proud of their lake. Whether fishing or water skiing 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 sand on the west side of the lake providing more beach area than most Muskoka Lakes.
Most cottages have been built after 1955 and are in better condition than the older cottages on lakes developed earlier. Cottages on sell for up to a million dollars.

The Morrison Lake property is located about 15 minutes from the Town of Gravenhurst (pop. 11,640, grows in the summer) to north on Hwy 11. Gravenhurst is a small and quaint town with a cottage country charm.
