Grindstone Lake is a small spring
fed lake north-east of Plevna, Ontario. It is 2.6Km long, 0.6Km wide and has 5 major bays off
of the main body with 17.1Km of shore line. As of 2005, it had
about 42 cottages on it. The water is very clean but boaters must
be aware of unmarked rocks throughout the lake. The primary fish is bass
with some splake although since 1999 fishing has not been very good.
