Celebrate Canada 

Last year, from coast to coast 43 percent of Canadians went boating, but we here at Lefroy Harbour Resorts know that the most spectacular boating waters lie just beyond our docks! 

The calm waters of our marinas lead to the beautiful Lake Simcoe and the Trent-Severn Waterway, a 387-kilometre water system connecting to Georgian Bay, then Lake Huron in the west, and to Lake Ontario in the south.

So Celebrate Canada on the water!

Mark Twain said it best:

Twenty years from now,
you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn't do,
than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbour.
Explore. Dream. Discover.

Canada Day Celebrations

Festivities on Saturday, July 1, 11am-3pm, include a Canada Day parade, games, a charity barbecue and entertainment!

Weather-permitting, we'll top off the celebration with evening fireworks on the beach at dusk.

A reminder that personal fireworks are not permitted at either Lefroy or Kon Tiki.

Safe Walk Ways Policy

Thank you to all guests who routinely ensure the walkway and area around your site is clear of trip hazards or blockage to safe passage.

It is our goal to make this practice standard throughout Lefroy Harbour and Kon Tiki, but a recent safety audit has identified personal items stored on walkways as a hazard.

As we strive to maintain a safe environment in accordance with industry standards and in compliance with legislation, on Sunday, June 11, we'll be reviewing all walk ways and sites.

Please contact the office in advance should you require assistance with the removal of personal items.

Thank you for your support!
