Water Body · Nature / Park
Visit Lake Ontario, one of the five Great Lakes of North America, and the 14th-largest lake in the world. Ontario, Canada's most populous province, takes its name from the 18,960 sq km (7,340 sq mi) lake, with the province enveloping the north, west, and southwest shores. Venture through the wide range of habitats surrounding the lake, such as dunes, wetlands, and forests, or simply take a stroll in some of the many settlements that hug its banks. Arrange for a boat trip across the shining expanse of water, where you'll see the urban and natural areas back on dry land from another perspective. Put Lake Ontario at the forefront of your travel plans using our Kent trip planner.

  • What an amazing body of water - a huge lake feels like you on at sea - fish, water ski or dance the night away on lake ontario - so much to enjoy  more »
  • Coming from New Zealand we don’t have anything the size of Lake Ontario. Standing at the waters edge you’d think you were at the coast with nothing on the horizon but water.  more »
  • It's generally not dirty or gross! It's picturesque and a stunning blue most days. It's good for swimming, just watch the signs for water quality and if there are issues with undertow.
  • Beautiful place. Peaceful. For kids some water activities are there in summer time ( near the coffee/ drinks center). Bring your food and drinks. Ice cream bus is there.
