About Us


Owner/operator J. Randall Steele (Randy) is 3rd generation living and working in Muskoka. Born, raised, and still residing on Pickerel Bay on north Lake Joseph, Randy has been working in the area since 1974.

Pickerel (“Kenozha” in Ojibway) Bay was named after the legendary steamship “The Kenozha” which tragically caught fire and sunk in 1918 in the waters in front of the original Steele homestead.

In 1999, J. Randall Steele Kenozha Bay Landscaping was officially developed and has been evolving and growing ever since.

Now 4th and 5th generations of Steele’s reside near Pickerel Bay and play an integral part of the daily operations of the family run, Kenozha Bay Company.
