Skiff Lake is a glacier lake in southwestern New Brunswick, Canada, near the village of Canterbury. There are many islands (27 in total) scattered throughout. Surrounding the lake are large granite boulders which may have been formed from one of the eruptions of Mount Pleasant Caldera.
 Skiff Lake was named by Lord Northcote in 18??, who paddled a skiff over to an island that he had claimed. This island is now known as Northcote island. A cottage was built on Northcote island which was the first camp on an island on Skiff Lake. There is a camp named "Lady of the Lake" that is the oldest camp on the lake, on the eastern shore of the lake.
There has been several outfitters on Skiff Lake. To name a few: Crombies camps, Faulks Camps, Skiff Lake Outfitters, Skiff Lake Inn.
