Fishing in Ontario

Fishing is excellent in Deer Lake for Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike, Yellow Perch, Bullhead (a more likely catch in the evenings), white sucker and rainbow smelt. Both smallmouth bass and yellow perch are successfully angled, adjacent most of the time to the shoreline and shoals. Frogs, minnows and artificial lures meet with equal success.

The northern section of the lake is most productive for both smallmouth bass and northern pike. Pike favor "fast and flashy" when it comes to lures. We find trolling more successful than casting when it comes to the great Northern Pike. Northerns like warm water. In spring, they will be in shallow bays - usually over weed beds. As summer comes, they will move a little deeper, but still gravitate toward structure. Pike hunt for food in the morning and evening. They are among the best eating fish that any freshwater situation can produce. Their firm, flaky, white flesh has a more robust flavor than their #1 rival, the walleye.

Children will catch lots of fish just fishing off our docks. Bait and licenses are available locally. For fishing regulations visit:

Horseback Riding and Sleigh Rides

Stewart Coughlin Riding Ranch located 10 minutes from the lodge offers great riding and other special activities. 129 Riding Ranch Road (off Eagle Lake Road), South River (705) 386-7465.


Ten Gables Golf is located 15 minutes from the lodge on Hwy. #11 Sundridge (705) 384-5844. Eagle Lake Golf and Country Club is located 10 minutes from the lodge at 2835 Eagle Lake Road, South River (705) 386-0261 Both Clubs have a Pro Shop with club and cart rentals. Dining is licensed under the LLBO.

Boats and Motors

Rentals are available right at the Lodge. New 14 foot aluminum Boats with new 9HP and 15HP 4-stroke motors may be reserved in advance. The serene waters of Deer Lake are ideal for boating and fishing and just good family fun! Canoes, Kayaks and Paddleboats rentals are also available.

Planned Activities

There is so much to see, do and enjoy. Or just simply relax in the sun. Horseshoe tournaments are always a challenge while children enjoy their own personal playground area. Nature walks are a must and will ensure magnificent captures for the photographer in you.

Wild raspberries and blueberries in mid-summer are profuse and the picking is close at hand. Then cool off with a swim and enjoy the beach area.

Evening Activities

Welcome party every Saturday evening around the bonfire lakeside. Roast up some marshmallows and let’s hear your tall tales under the stars!


Canadians have always been a nation of trail builders, and we’re no different! There are numerous trails for hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, snow sledding, and ATV’s throughout our acreage connecting to multi-use all season major trials.

Two of these are the TransCanada Trail only .5 km from the lodge and the OFSC TOP Trail C-105D that runs directly through TVW connecting to over 49,000 km of groomed snowmobile trails. Our trails also connect to the historical Forgotten Trails, a series of on-road and off-road hiking and cycling trails that direct visitors to a system of all-season trails. These remnants of the trails left behind by the previous inhabitants of the area have been meticulously researched, cleared and re-opened so that wilderness and historical enthusiasts can explore the wonders and mysteries that abound along the paths that wind their way through the beautiful Highland forests.

Lake Cruises

The Chief Commanda II, located at North Bay’s Waterfront only 45 minutes away, is the first all aluminum, catamaran (twin-hull) passenger vessel in Canada that offers 1.5 to 4 hour cruises from brunch on the French River to dinner on it’s sunset cruise around Callendar Bay. The M.V. Chippewa III cruises the world's largest and most beautiful concentration of islands in Parry Sound. The 30,000 Island Cruise from Parry Sound onto Georgian Bay is another unique cruise and worth the 1-hour drive. Group Rates available. For more info visit

Algonquin Park

A worthwhile excursion can be planned touring this large provincial park. The northern entrance located a mere 20 minutes from the lodge boasts of unspoiled waters and daring trails. You’ll discover why Tom Thomson of the Group of Seven selected this area in 1912 as the site that inspired much of his artwork such as "The Jack Pine", "The West Wind", and "Northern River" creating a distinct approach to portraying rugged Canadian landscapes. A fantastic new visitor centre opened in 1993 at the main entrance on Hwy. 60 near Huntsville off Hwy. 11.

Bird Watching

This area is ideal for bird watching. Black backed woodpeckers, Canada jays, ravens, brown creepers, winter and house wrens, sparrow hawks (kestrels), orioles, broad winged hawks, herring gulls, white-throated sparrows, thrushes, cedar wax wings, kinglets, warblers, grosbeaks, indigo buntings, wood ducks and the shy blue heron are among the few that can be viewed in their natural habitat.

Country Driving

Country driving is at its finest as you ramble along the back roads and spend the afternoon viewing the countryside and discover the hidden talents of the many local artists and artisans and historical landmarks, such as Bummer’s Roost on Nipissing Road. (It’s location is noted on MTO road maps!)

Old Nipissing Road, Old Muskoka Road and Old Rye Road, signify a group of long forgotten colonization roads that brought the first settlers to their promised tracts of free land in the north. This area was originally a communal hunting and fishing ground, traditional to the Huron, Ojibwa and Algonquin peoples. These traditional users agreed to lead early explorers along the more accessible waterways, skirting their precious hunting area in order to protect it.


Each year thousands of people flock to this area to share in the fun at the South River Festival of Arts held in early August each year with featured artists and numerous local artists participating in the events. Just a few of the local artisans you can visit are:

  • Wolf Creek Pottery, Riding Ranch Road (off Eagle Lake Road), Pottery of all makes, shapes and sizes;
  • Jack Anderson’s Bear Carvings (off Eagle Lake Road). Observe amazing wildlife carvings crafted from a chainsaw;
  • Les Maech Intarar Wood Crafts, Alfred Street, South River. You’ll see his interlay of woods form unique wildlife images; and
  • Stover’s Doll House, Nipissing Rd. (a “must see” just around the corner.) Watch porcelain dolls in the making, take a class or view the museum and see their Dionne Quintuplets babies and life-size famed celebrities.
  • Peter Camani's "Screaming Heads" Landscape on Midlothian Road has awed many visitors on their scenic drive to the Trans-Canada Highway towards Burks Falls . These gigantic cement sculptures inhibit acres of Camani's fields, while his home is a gothic rendition complete with gargoyles and a gate sculptured as a spider's web. Peter Carmani allows visitors to roam his fields freely. Located only 20 minutes from our lodge, this is a very worthwhile excursion and a great photo opportunity.

We strongly encourage booking well in advance. It is not uncommon for reservations to be booked a year in advance. However, by all means email us anytime at or call for that spontaneous need to take a breather in the fresh atmosphere of our wilderness setting. Telephone: 705-386-0002 or toll free at 1-866-913-0002.


Because of our small size, cancellations affect us significantly. A last-minute cancellation leaves us little chance of filling the reserved space. For these reasons, we uphold a strict cancellation policy.

You are welcome to send someone else in your place. The balance is due upon arrival.

In keeping with our natural setting, there are no telephones in the cottages and they are all Smoke-Free.


We know how a pet can be part of the family (having four of our own) and will want to share your vacation with you. Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate pets. We have numerous feeding stations for deer and other wild life throughout and find that domestic animals tend to panic these customary habitants driving them away from their own natural territory. Also of concern are allergies. Many of the guests who follow you may not be able to tolerate domestic animals. Our log cottage interiors are clean and groomed for the comfort of everyone who visits to enjoy their stay to the maximum.

Why not give your pet his or her own vacation? If you cannot leave your pet at home, there is an excellent kennel 20 minutes from the lodge where your pet will be pampered and spoiled and you can visit them any time you like. The charge is $10 per day if you provide the food or $12 per day if they provide the cuisine. Just let us know and arrangements can be made for them to be picked up at the time of arrival at the lodge and transported back on day of departure for a fee of $5.00. Feel free to call Oakridge Boarding and Grooming directly at 705-724-5656.


Fishing rods are very important so we’re putting them first on the list. Golf clubs are pretty important too, so they get second on the list. Some other things to pack would be binoculars, camera, hiking boots, sunhat, lots of sunscreen and that favourite book you’ve been trying to finish. Clothes are important to most people so when packing them make sure you include a sweater or light coat for those late evenings under the stars. In case you get hungry, pack some food and remember there’s a BBQ. Don’t worry about starving, grocery stores and shops are close by. Oh yes, must remember we still brush our teeth on vacation. That being said, don’t forget your toiletries and essentials.

If you’re visiting during the fall, spring or winter, substitute hiking boots with rubber or winter boots. Pack your clothes according to prevailing climate conditions. Sunscreen is still advised during the bright spring and winter sun. BBQ’s are for your culinary enjoyment during all seasons. Remember food packages are available during these seasons and can be arranged when making your reservation.
