Located at the east end of MacDonald Bay, this is the perfect place for little ones to play on a sandy beach or safely swim in the shallow, sandy water. The grassy area with picnic tables makes it a great place to have a family gathering or a picnic. There is an outdoor washroom available during the summer months. Boats can be pulled up on the shoreline. If you are coming by car the beach is located at 410 Peninsula Road, Havelock, ON K0L 1Z0

Fishing on Kosh

The joy of catching a fish is a great one. Back in the early 1900s, our plentiful bass stocks attracted anglers from all over North America. Today, Lake Kasshabog hosts Smallmouth Bass, Muskellunge, Walleye,  Largemouth Bass, and Rock Bass. The ongoing “Catch and Release” philosophy on Kasshabog has helped protect the lake's fishing stocks from being depleted so the fish can spawn and flourish for another generation.

Remember to take care when fishing near shore – there are underwater phone lines, water intakes, and anchor lines ready to grab your favourite lure!
