Explore Kennebec Lake
About the property
Kennebec Lake is a quintessential Canadian Shield lake, carved by the glaciers and lined with rock and pine. It is 13 km long and runs roughly parallel to and just north of Highway 7. There is an east and west basin divided by the Henderson Road bridge. Kennebec is part of a chain of lakes at the upper reaches of the Salmon River system, a beautiful canoe route. There is an abundance of fish, including large and smallmouth bass, walleye, pike, and a variety of pan fish. Much of the shoreline is rock, sand, or gravel. There are some parts of the lake where the depths exceed one hundred feet. The Township of Central Frontenac maintains an excellent boat launch beside the Henderson Road bridge, as well as a quiet beach a little further to the south, just west of Henderson Road. Both are walking distance from Kennebec Shores. Kennebec Lake also benefits from an active and progressive Lake Association that works for the benefit of the lake envirnment, and they also built a strong sense of community around the lake.
