In each of us, there's a place that has a special spot in our hearts and minds. A place filled with friendship and laughter, and where fun and adventure is always just around the corner. When you come to Henderson it's more than just spending a fun day on the pristine waters of Lake Ontario. It's a time of reconnecting with old friends and making new ones, all while catching trophy fish.

In addition to its scenic beauty, Henderson Harbor is the choice destination for many fishermen as it is home to many fish species including lake trout, small and large mouth bass, walleye, perch, and salmon. Whether you venture out with rod and reel on your own or charter a fishing trip with one of our many seasoned charter Captains, we have what you need for a trip of a lifetime.

The options for your open water adventures are limitless whether you are a sailor, a power boater or a kayaker. It doesn't matter if you're a beginner or seasoned pro. Henderson Harbor is dotted with public boat launches, marinas and waterfront cottages and motels. Our campgrounds welcome everything from tenters and popup campers to full sized Class A motorhomes. Several state parks and wildlife areas in and around Henderson offer soft sand beaches and clean shallow water for the swimming enjoyment of the entire family.
