McCarthy Lake

The Forest Motel and Woodland Retreat lies in a stunning natural setting on Lake McCarthy.  Lake McCarthy is the largest of the four lakes found on the eastern edge of the City of Stratford known as the Little Lakes complex. 


Spring fed, McCarthy Lake is the start of the Upper Thames River watershed, and its waters flow through Stratford, and down to Lake St. Clair near Detroit. A portion of McCarthy Lake and Forest Motel property is designated as a protected environment by the government of Ontario.
