Ice fishing

Ice fishing and parking

If you are a visitor and looking for parking, the pay-and-display parking lots at North Gwillimbury, Willow Beach, De la Salle, Jackson’s Point Harbour are open, and parking in those lots is free in the winter. While Holmes Point Parking is available to current resident parking pass holders, non-resident visitors may be subject to a nominal parking fee. There is also parking in south Keswick at Adeline Park and Young’s Harbour. There is no parking allowed on most of Lake Drive and the surrounding streets.
