Our World Record
Originally dubbed Stoney Lake due to the large amount of local rock around the southern and eastern edges of the lake, Bernard Lake holds the record for being the largest fresh water lake in the world that does not have its own island. Bernard lake was originally a logging lake, now used as a good fishing spot for trout and whitefish, as well as providing a beautiful place for ice fishing during the winter months.
Rumors of a Bernard Monster, akin to those of the Lochness Monster, sometimes circulate around the calm waters of the lake. No confirmed sightings have been made, but the possibility remains, does Bernard lake host its very own monster mystery?
