Bone Lake Amphitheatre

Bone Lake Amphitheatre 2013 - by Peter RedmanBone Lake is a gorgeous and secluded lake reserved for our exclusive use by Haliburton Forest and Wild Life Reserve. Our amphitheatre accommodates 600, with bench style seating nestled on the shore facing a floating stage. In order to maximize involvement and enchantment with the natural world the structure is uncovered. In this open setting the stars and moon emerge in full view after sunset. Canadians know the special magic of a wilderness lake at dawn, and the profound stillness after sunset when time stands still and sound resonates with extraordinary resonance and clarity. In this setting we learn to breathe again, to become alert to ripples in the water, the rustle of leaves overhead and to the constantly changing light.

Driving directions:

Follow directions to Haliburton Forest as described here. Continue on Kennisis Lake Rd. (County Rd 7) past the turn to Haliburton Forest Base Camp and continue another 7 km along the shores of Kennisis Lake to the Bone Lake parking area. Watch for Forest Festival signs.
