Eels Lake is a large lake that because of seasonal roads has been kept more of a cottage lake. The lake is surrounded by crown with no back lot development. This lake is affected by the trent canal system, therefore in the fall the water level does drop.
1/2 hour to 45 Minutes South of Bancroft, several cottage roads to access this large lake.
