Gravenhurst, variously known as "The Gateway to Muskoka" is situated in the South end of Ontario's finest four-season destination - Muskoka.
The Town of Gravenhurst combines a large area of the District of Muskoka, known to Ontarians as "cottage country." The town centre outskirts on two lakes: Lake Muskoka, which is the largest lake in the region, and Gull Lake, a smaller cottage-bordered lake. Another lake, Kahshe Lake, is located 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) south of the town.
Gravenhurst offers a vigorous community rich in Arts, Culture and Heritage and is home to the best events, recreational facilities and outdoor activities.
The Muskoka Wharf situated in Lake Muskoka in Gravenhurst was built in 2005. Before the new improvement was built, the wharf used to be used for lumber and boat building industries. Today, the wharf is full of retailers and restaurants and hosts a number of events in the summer in addition to Pirate Fest and the Gravenhurst farmers’ market.
