Property Info

Yoho Island Conservation Easement in Lake Joseph includes an intact riparian zone with a cobble/gravel lake bottom that provides excellent bass and lake trout spawning habitat. White oak trees are present at their northern range. There is a game trail that extends through hemlock, white pine, beech and red oak forest which is good habitat for migratory birds.

Yoho Island was once called Yohocucaba and has historic cultural importance to Muskoka. It was one of the earliest settled islands in Muskoka. The conservation easement agreement ensures the protection of natural features on the island and limits the expansion of buildings currently on the property.
