One of the largest lakes in the region Quirke Lake is known throughout Ontario as a Trophy Lake Trout fishery. Outdoor enthusiasts will find an abundance of fishing opportunities on a pristine, big body of water.
Quirke Lake is located approximately 15 km (9 miles) northeast of the downtown core of the City of Elliot Lake. Road access is available in two places. The first is via the Stanrock Road approximately 8 km (5 miles) north of City and the second is via Panel Mine Road approximately 13 km (8 miles) north of the City.
There are currently only 57 lots on this lake and all have been sold. There are some lots currently available through Real Estate or private sales.
If you’re looking for convenience, the new waterfront lots slated for development will be serviced by a year-round road access and hydro. In addition there is a site planned as boat access only in one of the southern bays. Waterfront lot sizes are in the 1.25 acre range with at least 150 feet of shoreline. These are the minimum sizes.
There is currently a municipal boat launch on Quirke Lake off Stanrock Mine Road and there are plans underway to add boat slips off of this boat launch.
Quirke Lake has a total of 53 km (33 miles) of shoreline and a surface area of 8 square miles. Only 5% of its unspoiled shoreline is slated for development. The Ministry of Natural Resources lists the maximum depth of the last as 102 meters (334 feet), but if you talk to some of our locals, they have recorded depths of over 400 feet.
The shoreline features of Quirke Lake range from steep bedrock outcrops to low lying marshy and beach areas.
The Elliot Lake region boasts some of the highest concentrations of lake trout lakes in the world. Deep pure water and high dissolved oxygen levels allow lake trout to thrive in these waters as well as brook trout, small mouth bass, walleye, yellow perch, northern pike and whitefish.
