Visit Faraday

Fishing and Wellbeing

Faraday Township has classic cottage country pastimes like fishing on Faraday Lake and cooling down at Kawartha Dairy. 
For something different, try a rockhounding tour or recharging at an alkaline lake retreat.


Fishing on Faraday Lake

If you’re looking for cottage country, visit Faraday Township for its pristine lakes and lush forests that will leave you feeling refreshed.  There are many lakes that welcome seasonal cottagers year over year (and for many generations), offering experiences for families and friends to make new memories and reminisce old ones. Visitors are also drawn to the community for its rich mineral abundance and internationally renowned holistic wellness resort – Grail Springs Retreat. Come for the day or stay for a week, Faraday is always welcoming new and old faces to explore!
