Kawartha Lakes Community
Cameron/Cambray

Those seeking a quiet country setting would be wise spending some time to discover Cameron.

Sitting on Highway 35 between Lindsay and Fenelon Falls (only minutes away via Kawartha Lakes Road 121 to the northeast), the village began as a farming communitiy before blacksmiths, a grainery and even a cheese factory came to the village.

It was also a part of the Midland Grand Trunk Railway that once ran north to Haliburton.

Nowadays, businesses ranging from collectable shops, auto repairs and bait shops call Cameron home.

A short drive down Long Beach Road will bring visitors to Sturgeon Lake, which is always vibrant with recreation on the water.

Part of the Trent-Severn waterway, the lake also boasts plenty of fishing and boating opportunities. Fenelon Falls is also accesible by water to the north.

Cambray, which got its name when the first post office set up shop there in 1853, sits just southwest of Cameron at the intersection of cambray and Elm Tree roads.

The Kawartha Cycling Club also calls Cambray home, with an annual charity event held in the area.

Today, the village retains its country charm, surrounded by fields or corn, hay and grains, amoung many other crops and plenty of grazing animals.

An active recreational community, the baseball diamond plays host to softball and little league teams while the Fenelon Township Community Centre is a hub for seniors' activities, anniversaries, wedding receptions and other gatherings.
