Kahshe Lake is a lake in the Muskoka region in Ontario, Canada near Gravenhurst.

Kahshe is the forth largest lake in the region and has approximately 600 cottages. The lake is tea-coloured, containing a high level of dissolved organics.

Name[edit]

The lake name Ka-shesheb-agam-ag is a First Nations term that may mean 'where there are-ducks-lake-place', thus 'Lake of Many Ducks'; compare Ojibwe jishib 'duck'; the following are spurious (Carl Masthay, St. Louis, 2009): Kah-Lake, She-Many, Bog-Ducks,a-and, Mog or Maug-Loons, therefore Lake of Many Many Ducks and Loons (researched by Ken Little). Other people claim that it means Lake of Many Islands or "Lake of Healing Waters".

Description[edit]

The west side of Kahse Lake is shallow while the east side is deep. Both areas have many shallow rock hazards with no marker buoys. A public beach, boating docks and a boat launch are located off North Kahshe Lake Road.

Events[edit]

Kahshe Lake has been featured on fishing shows and in a Tim Hortons television commercial. Residents have been staging the Kahshe Lake regatta, for over fifty years.[1] Lake Kahshe also has barn dances, a Labour Day concert, and the Rockhaven Inn craft sale. As well as the bi-yearly Muskoka Seaflea Fleafest event.
