A popular destination for those in search of recreation and relaxation, the downtown core is actually located on an island. "The Hub of the Kawarthas", with a population of close to 3,000, is also Lock 32 on the Trent-Severn Waterway. The name of the town is derived from the Native word "Bobcaygewanunk" meaning "shallow rapids" or "swirling rivers around islands".
Bobcaygeon's chief industry is tourism, particularly related to recreational fishing. Bobcaygeon is a hub for the region, providing many of the services unavailable in the smaller neighbouring communities.
