A small little beach at the end of a road. It has a picnic table and an outside bathroom for you to use. It is a very small beach, but it is usually empty! It is the closest beach to our house so try your luck and have the whole beach to yourself.

This is our favourite pizza place in the area! You will need to order ahead if you are here in the summer or you can walk in and pick up a slice to go. We love to grab a pizza, grab some drinks, and sit by the water in Buckhorn, watching the boats pass us by. Our favourite thing to get here is just the Great Canadian pizza which is also their best seller!

Bobcaygeon is where it all started for Kawartha Dairy! You’ll notice that you can only get Kawartha Dairy milk in the grocery stores around here. There is a store front attached to the warehouse in town where most of the locals like to go. You can take a stroll down to the river and watch people fish. Annie’s favourite thing to get here is the Death by Chocolate milkshake with chocolate milk.

A great fish and chips place that has been in Bobcaygeon for ages. The service is impeccable. We just like to stick with the haddock and chips. We usually get take out and head over by the water to have a picnic.

Suchintan really loves the fried chicken from here. It’s a small place, but great customer service. You should call in your oder ahead of time, especially on the weekends! Their fries and poutine are our favourite. They have so many fried appetizers that we like to try but our go to is a bucket of chicken and fries with gravy!

A small place right by the water! If you rent a boat, you can dock your boat there and they will come serve you. Annie’s favourite here is the pulled pork poutine!
