Harbours

Moor your boat at one of three beautifully-maintained and protected harbours. Boat slips (up to 5.5 feet draft, accommodating large power and sail boats) are available to Association Member boaters at very reasonable rates. Running water and hydro outlets (up to 30 amps) are available at most slips.

Our newest harbour, Pier 99, has been constructed to the highest environmental standards and enjoys recognition by the Lake Simcoe Conservation Authority as the most environmentally friendly boat harbour on the lake.

Sail Lake Simcoe to Barrie or Keswick, or cruise to the Port of Orillia, Beaverton, Lagoon City, the Trent-Severn waterway and from there to your chosen destination, world-wide. Each year groups of boaters come together for tours of the Trent to the Kawartha lakes, the Severn to Georgian Bay and Lake Huron, or around Lake Simcoe. Bayshore Village is the place to be, if you enjoy being on the water.

Our kayaking group roams the nearby waters, usually launching from one of the harbours.

Fishing is the hobby of choice for many Bayshore residents and Lake Simcoe is a great place to pursue a finny dinner. Bass and pike are common catches, and perch abound. While muskies are rare these days, the Ministry of Natural Resources has been restocking for the past few years. Lake trout and whitefish are reported to be making a come-back. Our harbours make great fishing hot-spots (for Association Members only). Fishing from the docks is not allowed from April 15 to October 15, but shoreline fishing is permitted year-round.

Water Access Parks

Five shoreline parks offer easy access to the lake. They can be found at McGinnis Point Park, at the end of the peninsula on which Bayshore Village is situated; on Barnstable Bay east of Harbour 66; and on the lake side, opposite Hayloft Lane, at the end of Park Lane, and at Harbour 99.

The Pool

Centrally located alongside the Hayloft is the Village Association's heated outdoor swimming pool. Deck chairs are supplied for tanning and relaxing with friends.

The tennis/pickleball courts are in the background. They were professionally resurfaced in the summer of 2015.
