Yoho Lake is situated in York County, approximately 30 km southwest of Fredericton. Significant cottage development began in the 50s and has continued to the present with the shoreline almost completely utilized. While originally for seasonal use, many of the cottages have been upgraded for year round and several permanent homes have been erected. Increased highway access and road improvements have aided development and plans exist for development beyond the shoreline strip. The lake supports moderate fishing pressure for both native and stocked salmonids. Smallmouth bass have also been introduced. The main activity on the lake however appears to be recreational boating and swimming.
