Paint Lake (originally named St. Mary’s Lake on some official surveys and community maps of the late 1800’s) is a moderate sized body of water located about 4km south of the town of Dorset in the Township of Lake of Bays, District of Muskoka.
Paint Lake Creek flows into Lake of Bays giving limited water access into Lake of Bays.
A full description of Paint Lake’s bathymetry and characteristics are outlined in the Paint Lake, Lake Plan publication available for purchase from the Paint Lake Association.
Also, a Paint Lake history publication entitled “Paint Lake Reflections” published in 2009 contains historical information about aboriginal, pioneer, logging, homesteaders and more current family histories. This edition is available for purchase from the Paint Lake Association. Contact: Tom Swain (705-766-1268)
