Kennebec Lake is located in Central Frontenac, off highway 7, north of Arden, Ont (approximately 20 km west of Sharbot Lake). The lake is approximately 14 km long and is "home" to over 200 seasonal and permanent residents.

The Kennebec Lake Association is a group formed to represent residents of the Kennebec watershed. Its mission is to preserve and enhance:

  • Water Quality
  • Air Quality
  • Peace and Tranquility
  • Nature and Wildlife
  • Lifestyle

    The association acts to monitor the health of the lake and its ecosystems, organize community events, monitor lake issues such as taxes, interface with Municipal council and generally keep both seasonal and year-round residents informed of important developments.
