Kawartha Lakes     
Kawartha means "bright waters and happy lands," the name the  Huron gave to this region north of modern-day Peterborough. It remains a  fitting description of an area renowned for its abundance of clean  lakes and rivers. An angler's paradise, the Kawartha Lakes-Cameron,  Sturgeon, Pigeon, Buck-horn, Chemong, Clear, and Stony-form a glittering  chain along the Trent-Severn Waterway. Many houseboat operators can  provide a relaxing way to view the scenery from afloat. Since the days  of pioneer writers Susanna Moodie and Catharine Parr Traill, the area  has provided inspiration for some of Canada's most creative minds. Many  musicians, actors, playwrights, painters, writers, and craftspeople call  the Kawarthas home.     
Bobcaygeon [C2] Built on three islands and joined by a series  of seven bridges, this village is the midway point on the Trent-Severn  Waterway. Lock 32, a swing bridge at the center of town, was the first  wooden lock constructed on the waterway in 1833. The famous Kawartha  Dairy is a reminder of the large dairy industry that once flourished  here. Numerous lakes with their choice of fish attracts anglers from far  and wide, and a fiddling contest is held in July.
Campbellford [E7] The locks at Ranney Falls mark the entrance to  Campbellford, where boats cruise past the town's historic riverfront of  19th-century mills and industrial buildings. Among the town's  one-of-a-kind shops are the World's Finest Chocolate factory and the  Empire Cheese Cooperative. The annual Great Canadian Cardboard Boat  Race, held on the Trent River in August, is good fun.
Fenelon Falls [CI]  A dramatic limestone gorge cuts through the heart  of this town with the 7 m falls between Cameron and Sturgeon lakes as  the focal point. The two lakes are home to many summer resorts, t  lodges, and cottages, as well as populations of walleye and largemouth  bass. The oldest building in Fenelon Falls, the Maryboro Lodge (1837),  is now a museum with over 3,500 artifacts.      
Lakefield [D4] This pretty village on Lake Katchewanooka was  home to pioneer writer Susanna Moodie, whose book Roughing It in the  Bush (1852) chronicled the life of Canadian settlers. The town is also  famous for its great cheddar cheese and Aboriginal handicrafts. Amateur  geologists will want to visit the Warsaw Caves Conservation Area just  outside of town, where an underground network of stream channels and  caves holds evidence of ancient animal life in fossils embedded in  limestone.      
Peterborough [e3]  "Queen City of the Kawarthas," Peterborough  is a major link in the Trent-Severn Waterway and its spectacular  hydraulic lift lock is among the world's highest-raising pleasure craft  20 m high in the air. You can learn the history of the system at the  Peterborough Lift Lock Visitor Centre. The town has many examples of  fine architecture: the Grover-Nicholls House (1847) is a stunning  example of Greek Revival architecture, while Trent University features  striking buildings of a more modern design. ┬«The Canadian Canoe Museum  shows the canoe's pivotal role in our history through storytelling,  hands-on demonstrations, and the world's largest collection of canoes  and kayaks-over 600, each with a unique story.      
Petroglyphs Provincial Park [B5] At the east end of Stony Lake,  Petroglyphs Provincial Park contains over 900 images of humans,  objects, and animals including turtles and snakes, carved into a 35 m by  60 m limestone wall. Protected from deterioration by a special  building, the glyphs are believed to have been carved 500 to 1,000 years  ago and are the largest concentration of Native rock carvings in  Canada.
