Area Information
Port Carling is located on Indian River, touching the shores of Silver Lake and Mirror Lake. It is nestled between Lake Muskoka and Lake Rosseau, along Hwy. 118. It is centred between Bracebridge and Bala, and has access to Lake Joseph, Lake Rosseau and Lake Muskoka. Because of this Port Carling has been dubbed, "Hub of the Lakes".
In the mid-1800s the government started to build Colonization Roads in the attempt to open Muskoka up to settlers. The Free Grant Colonization Road, which ran from Washago to the interior of Parry Sound, was built in 1859. In June 1896 the area was renamed after John Carling, Minister of Public Works.
