We are at the Northeast Ohio Sportsman Show through Saturday!

Today through Saturday we are at the NE Ohio Sportsman Show in Mt Hope Ohio. As mentioned before, this is a smaller, more diverse show right in the heart of Amish country. It’s not a big show, but their fry pies and homemade ice cream are worth the trip! The dates are January 19th, 20th and 21st. Keep in mind this show is not open Sunday. It runs Thursday through Saturday. Stop by and see us!

NEW Border Measures Update Through to September 30, 2022

We have received public notice that requirements for travelers arriving to Canada are expected to remain in effect until at least September 30, 2022. This means that the government is not planning to lift the current vaccination and ArriveCAN app policies for the remainder of our fishing season. 

If you have a reservation with us for this summer and are now unable to come to Canada, please contact us as soon as possible and we will re-book you for 2023.

All travelers must continue to use ArriveCAN (free mobile app or website) to provide mandatory travel information within 72 hours before their arrival in Canada. For more information, click here for the ArriveCAN website.

If you are planning to travel to the lodge, here is the quarantine destination address:

45 Old Lochalsh Road

Lochalsh, Ontario

P0S 1B0

Note that the Canadian postal code format is letter, number, letter, number, letter, number (so it’s: P ZERO S    ONE B ZERO ).

We have also updated the 2022 Checklist with this address.

The full statement from the Public Health Agency of Canada can be read here.

We are disturbed and disappointed by this federal decision, which continues to have a major impact on our business. Our representative business organizations, Nature & Outdoor Tourism Ontario and Algoma Country Tourism, continue to bring the wilderness tourism industry’s struggles forward to the federal government, and we hope for change as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience in these difficult times. We appreciate your visits and encouragement.
