Belmont Lake

Belmont Lake is a beautiful lake located in Belmont Township, within the municipality of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen, Peterborough County, in Central Ontario, Canada. It is part of the Trent Severn Waterway Great Lakes Basin and is vital to the region’s water system. The lake was almost named Loon Lake due to the abundance of loons that can be found and heard there year after year. Belmont Lake boasts a diverse fish population, although the once thriving Muskie population has declined due to the introduction of non-native Pike species. However, other fish species, such as Perch, Bass, Bluegill, Catfish, and Pickerel, can still be found in the lake. The southern part of the lake features a large bay called King Bay, while the northern region is home to Deer Bay. Belmont Lake stretches approximately 7.5 km from its southern to north ends and is about 3.1 km wide at its widest point. You can still find some of the older cottages along the lake’s shores that give the area a charming, rustic atmosphere. Belmont Lake is a stunning destination in Central Ontario, offering beautiful scenery and abundant recreational opportunities. Whether you’re a fishing enthusiast or simply looking to enjoy the peacefulness of nature, Belmont Lake has something for everyone.

The old mills (no longer present) known as Ashby Mill and Rockdale are located on the south shore and at the Crowe River outflow, respectively. The southern part of the lake has a large bay called King Bay. The northern part of the lake has a large bay called Deer Bay. It is approximately 7.5 km from the southern part of the main lake to the north part of the main lake. It is about 3.1 km wide at its widest point from the west river inflow to the east river outflow. Many older cottages are still on the Lake, allowing it to maintain its “cottagey” feel.
