Sturgeon Lake is located in the Kawartha Lakes region in South Central Ontario. It is a long and narrow lake in a Y shape with 46 km² of surface area. It is located along the Trent-Severn Waterway system; the Scugog River drains into Sturgeon from the South and Cameron Lake drains into it from the Northwest. Sturgeon Lake is also attached to Pigeon Lake at its Northeast corner and Emily Creek drains out in the middle of the left Y of the lake. The Lake has several communities of varying sizes along its shores including Fenelon Falls, Bobcaygeon, Sturgeon Point, and the city of Lindsay.
Outdoor enthusiasts will find plenty to do on and around Sturgeon Lake. Fisherman will encounter game fish species including large and small mouth bass, muskie, and walleye. There is also the Ken Reid Conservation Area at the southern point of the lake.
Sturgeon Lake is approximately a 2 hour drive from Toronto and a 50 minute drive from Peterborough.
