Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do the cabins have hot water and electricity?

    Yes!  All cabins have power 24 hours and full bathrooms with showers.

  • I am bringing my own boat, does your dock have power outlets?

  • Do I need a licence to drive a boat?

    If you have an Ontario Pleasure Craft Operator Card, bring it with you. But, not to worry, if you don’t have one that’s ok. When you are issued with your boat, our staff will have you complete and sign a boat safety checklist. Anytime you are in the boat, you will need to have the checklist available to show a Ministry of Natural Resources officer or the OPP (Ontario Provincial Police) should you be stopped.

If you haven’t received your Outdoors Card of fishing license in the mail before you leave, make sure to bring your temporary one with you.

    We have free wifi available in our lodge. We do get cell phone service but sometimes it depends on your provider and where you are standing. If you’re having trouble, just ask us and we’ll suggest a good place to stand.
