Few fishing lodges offer you the opportunity to spend a week in your own piece of Northwestern Ontario remote wilderness. Birch Bark Lodge is a small 2 cottage fly-in lodge on Wigwascence Lake, 70 miles north of Pickle Lake, Ontario. Our name is derived from the native word wigwascence which translates to birch bark or birch tree. Birch Bark Lodge is located on Wigwascence Lake which is part of the 250 mile Pinemuta river system and is 7.5 miles long with numerous islands, bays and more to offer you endless fishing opportunities. The river enters at the top of lake directly in front of lodge and exits in 2 places on the bottom side of the lake.
Our unique location gives you the opportunity to bring your group of 10-12 people to our camp and allow you to be pampered as the only guests at the only lodge on the lake. We can also cater to smaller groups so feel free to contact us regardless of your group size!
Our main lodge will provide you with a place to enjoy some delicious home cooked meals if you choose to book our worry free American Plan, or you can bring your own supplies if you prefer to stay with us on our housekeeping plan. The decks of your cottages overlook the calm waters of the lake offering you the peace and tranquility you need to forget about the everyday stresses of life. As the owners we want to provide a truly personalized service and we will be on site ensuring we cater to the needs of all of our guests.

Wigwascence lake is known for its walleye and large northern pike. Wig (as we call it) receives vast amounts of cold, oxygenated water from the Pinemuta river that flows through year round, which ensures hungry hard fighting fish.
