About Kashwakamak Lake
Kashwakamak Lake is in eastern Ontario, just south of Bon Echo Provincial Park, about a one hour drive north of Belleville and Kingston, located in beautiful North Frontenac Township.

Kashwakamak Lake is a complex body of water made up of several distinctly different sections. The north-eastern and north-western sections of the lake are shallow and do not stratify (water temperatures during the summer are similar from surface to bottom), whereas in the deepest part of the lake, there can be a temperature range of 31F (18C) degrees.
Facts: The average depth is 27.4 ft (8.3 m) and the maximum depth is 72 ft (22 m.)
The perimeter is 41 miles (65.6 km) around.
There are approximately 450 cottages and 6 lodges or camps.
Fishing: Yellow pickerel and smallmouth bass are found adjacent to most of the shoreline and rocky shoals throughout the lake. Shallow bays with heavy aquatic vegetation provide excellent feeding grounds and the best fishing areas for northern pike and largemouth bass.
History of the Lake
As part of the Lake Sustainability Planning effort, a first draft of the Kashwakamak Lake State of the Lake Report was presented at the July 13th KLA Annual General Meeting.

In addition to the wildlife and peaceful cottages of the real Kashwakamak Lake, the author Stephen King has featured Kashwakamak Lake (re-located to northern Maine) as a locale in several of his books, including Gerald's Game, and Cell.
