Call Now to Reserve: 1-877-456-3246
New for 2013 - Due to the accelerated shutdown of CBC/Radio-Canada's analogue transmission network and the fact that they did not convert the network to digital in our area we will not be able to offer battery operated televisions this season. We have purchased Honda generators for the Super Huts so the three six man Super Huts will still have satellite TV with DVD players as well as now having electric lights. Unfortunately none of our standard bungalows will have TV's this season.
January 2, 2013 - Scott's flooding @ Christmas has made ice conditions great. The ice is currently measuring 12+".
January 3, 2013 - Our first guests arrived today and fishing has been amazing. Here's a photo of a 23.5" Walleye caught by one of our groups on January 3rd. All groups report that fishing has been phenomenal.
January 15, 2013 Ice measuring 12" after that thaw on the weekend. We've gotten snow today so Scott's happy as he'll have snow to bank the huts for this upcoming weekend.
