You've got a septic system and a water pump, not a town sewer; you've got a woodstove and (if you're lucky) electric heat; you're far from town down a dirt road that sometimes washes out... Lake living is a little different, and can take some getting used to. Moreover, everything you do here impacts the lake, its ecosystem, and your lake neighbours, so it's important to always keep your community in mind.
This website is full of vital information to help you relax and play safely while you are visiting Koshlong.
Take time to explore the site, or follow the links below to learn more about how you can:
For thousands of years, Indigenous people of many nations have lived in sustainable relationship to the lands and waters surrounding what we know as Koshlong. Today, through treaty relationships between nations, we continue to share the land and water with the First Nations of Curve Lake, Hiawatha, Alderville, Scugog Island, Rama, Beausoleil, and Georgina Island. Learn more by reading our Land Acknowledgement and what prompted us to begin giving attention to reconciliation in the work we do.
Koshlong Lake is serviced by 911. Should you need fire, police or medical emergency services, it is important to know your full street address and location on the lake. Please keep this information handy at all times
Find more emergency and non-emergency numbers on our emergencies page, including for local hospitals, Hydro One, Municipal Roads and more. Then learn how to be prepared for emergencies, and what to do in case of fire or criminal activity or break-in in your area.
