Our fishing and hunting lodges are located 200 miles north of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario on Wabatongushi Lake. The lake is set in the southwest portion of the Chapleau Crown Game Preserve, which at almost 2 million acres is the worlds largest.
Camp Lochalsh sits at the far south end of the lake, while Loch Island is five miles north. Otter Island and Sandy Bay are approximately a mile north of Camp Lochalsh.
Please note that private boats are not permitted at our camps. Non-resident camping is prohibited by law on Wabatongushi Lake.
Getting there is half the fun!
When you choose to visit Camp Lochalsh or Loch Island Lodge, the fun will start before you get there! Our lodges are accessible by float plane, rail, or logging road!

How to Get Here (Planes, Trains, and Automobiles)
Float Plane guests drive to the rail town of Hawk Junction, just east of Wawa, and board a genuine bush plane piloted by a legendary Canadian bush pilot for a breathtakingly scenic 20-minute ride directly to our dock.
Imagine looking out from the plane’s window and seeing Moose, Bear, and even Wolves making their way through the wilderness!

Drive to White River or Missanabie and board one of the last flag stop railways in North America! The Canadian Pacific Railway’s “Budd” car services the CPR line from Sudbury to White River. The Budd car runs East (starting in White River) on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. It runs West (from Sudbury) on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The Budd car does not run on Monday!
Passengers choosing to take this unique form of transportation to visit us disembark at the “Lochalsh” stop. Lochalsh is about an hour and forty minutes from White River. You can purchase your tickets on the train or online at: VIA Rail website If you would rather drive to the town of Missanabie, your train ride is only twenty minutes.
We will meet your party at the Lochalsh station when you arrive. From the tracks, it is a short van ride (1/4 mile) to Camp Lochalsh.
If you choose to “go as far as you can” by road, your journey will take you through the French Canadian lumber town of Dubreuilville. Camp Lochalsh guests can drive all the way into camp, with detailed directions provided by us. The trip into Camp Lochalsh will wind through gravel roads, past working and abandoned gold mines and down the last 6 miles of “two track” directly to Camp Lochalsh.
Loch Island guests will traverse a private 20 mile gravel logging road through the Chapeau Crown Game Preserve to the “narrows” of the lake. From there we will be waiting to transport you via boat the remaining 7 miles down the lake to Loch Island.
