The web site is well done. It is easy to find the information required. You have integrated many beautiful pictures.
Enticing information for vacation planning. White Lake residents should be proud!


Have had a cottage on the lake for some 20 years... can only access it by boat. Used the ice on and off dates to gauge when I might be able to access the cottage. I am sure a lot of others looked forward to seeing freeze/thaw dates.

I was amaze at this site, didn't realize that White Lake had such a nice site. This is great for people coming from outside. We have a place at Bayview Lodge and I thought I would look at this site, it is very well done indeed.
I hope you keep it up to date.


White Lake Village

The historic heart of the White Lake area with restaurants, general store, businesses and residential areas.

Where the name orginated may be a bit of a mystery, but "'Waba Sagaigun" is native Algonkin meaning simply "White Lake". In the earliest survey's of the region, White Lake was shown as "Wabolak" and "Wa-ba-lak".

St. Andrew's United Church sits majestically at the center of White Lake Village, and is very active with regular events and weekly Sunday Service at 8 a.m. Plan to drop by and experience the history in this over 129 year old fully operational church anytime, including very special services at Christmas and Easter. Feeling romantic?? St. Andrew's is also a great place to get married.
