All of the cabins (except Maple) are prepped and available for occupancy. Maple will be…Continue
Preparations for the 2017 Season have begun! Mike and Scott are at the Lodge now and Steve arrives today. The weather has made it a little tough to work on some of the outside things. Also, the water is up and onto the property and there’s been ice on the fixed docks because it’s been cold, and rainy, with some snow showers mixed in.
Mike described the water level by saying it’s right up to the top of the dock (porch) in front of the Beech Cabin (farthest left as you are looking…Continue

As preparations for the camp shut down continue, Mike found his chance to get out for a little fishing and sent this picture of a 47½ inch musky that he caught on a buzzbait. He’s back in the Lodge now, anticipating a Steelers’ victory over the…Continue
The camp is empty for now. On Saturday, the Joe Petras group arrives, followed by Bernie and his crew who are expected on the 6th, and shortly after that Maximus Madden and his dad Matt come in for a few days. Mary has returned to North Bay, so all guests from here on out are on the 'housekeeping' plan.
Camp closing procedures will begin in earnest and Mike expects everything to be shut down by the 25th of October.
In the meantime, he and Scott have been getting out on the…Continue
