Administrative history: Forest Hill Lodge is a family fishing resort on Lovesick Lake, near Burleigh Falls Ontario, on the Trent Severn Waterway. It first opened as The Burleigh Falls Fishing Club in 1924. Originally catering to parties of male anglers from the Clevland, Ohio area, it eventually became a travel destination for the whole family. The original tent accommodations were replaced by cabins, and a lodge was built with a dining room, kitchen, lounge and card room. The interior of the Lodge is full of photos of people who stayed there over the years. It is one of Ontario’s oldest fishing camps still in operation in the Kawarthas.
