Had an amazing September wedding at the Forest Rock Resort! The owners had been so wonderfully generous and helpful throughout the entire process of planning. They went above and beyond our expectations–the fantastic fireworks, enormous bonfires, all the works! They also made sure all our guests were accommodated properly, even with many of our last minute changes–we can’t thank you enough! This is a truly awesome place for anyone who’s thinking of doing a DIY event in the Muskoka!!

Brianna D.

First timers at Forest Rock Resort. It was a great place for families. We were a large group with children ranging from 14 months to 18 years. There was truly something for everyone. Sand beach, fishing, water sports and lots of daily activities. It was a great location just 15 min from Port Carling shopping & restaurants. We enjoyed the hospitality of Gary, Frank and their families. So much so that we booked our group for next year before we left. We are looking forward to our next family vacation at Forest Rock!

I just wanted to say a big thank you once again. After another great vacation stay over the Labour Day weekend. My boyfriend and I had such a great stay in July I had to come back to finish off the summer at you resort with my sister and her family. My son Blake had a great time as his first time at Forest Rock. I love it how everyone is included in activities and events. It’s like one big family. Even other guests were great that we met. Truly the best vacation spot. Will definitely be back to share in many more memories with you.

The Fredericks Family

I wanted to thank you for hosting our reunion event at Forest Rock Resort. The resort is wonderful and suited our needs exactly. The owners and staff were all super friendly and went out of their way to help out, and to make our event a success. I would highly recommend Forest Rock Resort to anyone looking for an enjoyable vacation get-away for family and friends; or as a venue for a group event like ours. We will definitely come back to Forest Rock Resort for our next reunion.

Thank you very much. We had a great week. We Love this place and all of the people who run the resort. The guest were great too. We look forward to our next summer.

Jeff and Family

My in-laws have been going to Forest Rock Resort since the 1950’s (that’s over 65 years of coming back every year to vacation), although my first visit was about 20 years ago when my oldest son was just a Baby. We loved it! We tried a couple different places in the area over the years but always end up back at Forest Rock. The sandy beach is fabulous, clean water for swimming or fishing. The owners always have activities most days and nights for both the kids and adults. Fireworks and beach bon fires are always a favorite. Now that my children are older my husband and I are now spending long weekends at Forest Rock in addition to our vacation in the summer. It’s reasonably priced, friendly and a very beautiful place to spend our vacation.

Cathy & Rob Duncan

Our family has been vacationing at Forest Rock since 1986. Back then, we were a family of 3 and though the family has grown and the place has definitely gone through many positive changes, we cannot imagine going anywhere else. A few years ago we talked about going on a cross country trip, but because we own our own business and holiday time is limited to 2 weeks the kids wouldn’t give up their weeks at Forest Rock (we got the same negative response when we talked about building a cottage on the same lake!) The many games and contests on the beach and the horseshoe tournaments over the years have made our holidays memories ones never to be forgotten. We have made lifelong friend many of which we stay in contact with over the course of the year. As the children get older (they are now 22, 19, & 16) and summer jobs get in the way, they still manage to make it up for a few days, and they talk about how when they have families of their own they want to come to Forest Rock and start their own traditions. As my husband says the best part of a holiday at Forest Rock is that as soon as you arrive, somebody always has a cold beer ready for you and you know your holiday has begun.

Jim & Patti Meghan Kurtis & Evan

I have been going to Forest Rock since I was 15 years old. Yes that is 20 years and counting. It is my favourite vacation spot. I like the friendly atmosphere and the people. How many places let 20 cottages full of people have an all-out water balloon fight at 4am in the morning? … I have recommended this place to my friends. Jen and I brought a friend of ours up with us last year….she loved it, and so did her four girls, and her son. My family starts planning for our Muskoka trip after Christmas holidays….that tells you right there, how dedicated we are to this place.

Mike & Jenn Barabash

We always loved coming back to Forest Rock every year for our vacation. But, Wow!! What an amazing change in just a year!! The new remodeled cottages are beautifully completed top to bottom in pine with new bathroom and kitchen, kitchen appliances, mattresses. The beach has doubled in size and is beautifully landscaped. The oversized beach patio decks overlooking the water are amazing and we had a great time there during ice cream socials, bingo and card tournaments. The kids loved the sandy beach, swimming and activities. We will be back!!

Rick D.

Why build or buy a cottage when you can stay at Forest Rock!! It has everything you want or need with a beautiful beach and it costs less to rent for the summer than owning your own place. Great job on the renovations!! Many cottages are brand new. Very comfortable, spacious and clean. Amazing fireworks and huge bon fires. If the kids had their way, they would be back every week. Thanks for a fantastic time.

David K.

Appreciate the complimentary use of kayaks and pedal boats for the kids. The new owners are fantastic. We have been coming back for over 10 years and we have told all of our friends about the incredible changes at Forest Rock. My family and I loved the beach bingo and all the other activities offered. See you next summer!

Nina C.

Impressed with transformation. Can’t wait to see next year the planned changes to further enhance the already beautiful beach and property. The sunsets and sunrises were breathtaking. Loved our stay and will be back next summer.

Sylvia F.

I had so much fun at Forest Rock playing soccer and volleyball on the beach. Movie night was awesome under the stars and I got to make my own ice cream sundaes at the ice cream socials.

David D.

Thank you for an amazing vacation. We will definitely be coming back. The place was amazing and the kids enjoyed the crafts, sand castle competition and beach games. My son and daughters also loved the fishing and caught one fish after another just off the dock. They can’t wait to take a boat out next summer!

Sandra A.

Had a fantastic time and enjoyed the horseshoe, bocce ball and card tournaments. The fireworks at night were unbelievable; the owners put on a great show. Amazing bon fires at the beach and some really talented musicians.

Steve N.

Enjoyed my morning walks on the beach and surrounding property. Forest Rock is a peaceful and majestic place for family and friends. A great place for kids too!! The owners treat you like family and the property is always clean and well groomed. Loved the beautiful new cabins. Thanks for a wonderful time! See you next summer!

Nella F.

We had a fantastic stay at Rockhaven and Dixie. The new owners (Gary, Christine, Frank and Fiorella) are amazing and treated us like family. We will definitely visit again. We loved the scenery and the lake was an awesome view.

Murray Leeds, England.

My three kids loved their first family camping trip at Forest Rock. It’s amazing how throughout the school year they would spontaneously talk of their fond fun-filled memories. Your resort has a great blend of what a getaway should be: relaxation, a wonderful lake, great people, and that terrific kids’ playground! Thank you for a fun summer vacation.

Jennie Cheung

We would highly recommend Forest Rock Resort. We discovered the resort on the website looking for a place to stay in the Muskoka area for a reasonable price. We stayed in the Hilltop cabin for what was supposed to be a week, but because of car troubles turned into a week and a half … There is a real family feeling at the resort. Forest Rock was beautiful and there is plenty to do at the resort, from sitting on the beach or around the campfire, watching the sunset, playing horseshoes and volleyball or taking a boat ride around Three Mile Lake.


We came across Forest Rock just about 3 years ago and immediately felt welcomed from day 1. We have met so many friendly people and the owners are great hosts making sure everything is just right. We as a family look forward to returning every year.
