17.9: Stephenfield Lake

Stephenfield Lake is a reservoir created by damming the Boyne River 1. The dam is seen in the east 2 with the riparian channel 3 and spillway 4 at its southern end. Although the main purpose for creating the lake was for water supply, it offers recreational potential. A provincial park is located on the south side of the lake with facilities for camping 5. Parking areas 6 are provided north of the campground with a swimming beach further north—light-toned 7. The lake itself offers the possibility of boating, fishing, sailing, and windsurfing with hiking and mountain bike trails in the surrounding area.
