Shadow Lake, in the Kawartha Lakes region, is the second-lowest lake on the Gull River. The lake is attached to the slightly lower Silver Lake by two rapids at its southern end. At its northern end, the Gull River is navigable west to a dam in Norland.
These largely protected, landlocked lakes provide for calm waters and create splendid boating conditions including great water for canoeing, kayaking and sailing enthusiasts. There is an abundance of wildlife in the area during the summer season, especially water fowl cruising Gull River and Shadow Lake.
