Oak Lake Lodge and Outposts operates a full service American Plan Lodge and a Housekeeping Outpost cabin on Oak Lake.

As part of the English River System, we are a fly-in only fishing lodge. Because of the waterfalls, the lake, and the terrain, most boats (and fishermen) cannot access our area. The English River System, in upper northwestern Ontario, is filled with an abundance of food and nutrients for the walleye, smallmouth bass, northern pike, and muskie that live in the lakes. Oak Lake is big and remote and filled with fish. Visit our lodge or outpost and be guaranteed great fishing.

Our remote Canadian wilderness fly-in fishing lodge is the only lodge on all of Oak Lake. This is an oxygen-rich lake, fed by a provincially protected-waterway called the English River System.

There is no industry at all along any of the river systems that flow into Oak Lake. You will experience a pristine environment and catch healthy fish from a clean river system.

Our lodge provides the comforts of home. We are a small lodge, a boutique lodge, that caters to no more than 32 guests at a time.

Oak Lake Lodge provides you with a secluded, safe, nature-filled environment, while offering lodging comforts you are used to at a hotel. Housekeeping service, delivering your coffee in the morning, and the supply of fresh linens and towels. (So you don’t have to travel with a tent, food, water, or sheets.)

Oak Lake Lodge is also a catch and release lake which is another reason our fish populations are so high. You’ll be astounded by the number of fish you can catch in a Canadian lake that is secluded, without road access, and deep in the majestic and life-giving Canadian boreal forest. Even though we are a catch and release lake, we do cook your morning walleye catch as part of a special “shore lunch” all guests love.

All these factors ensure that you will catch an abundance of fish on your fishing trip to Ontario, Canada.

You don’t pay extra for your meals, your excursions, or your turn-down service. (Your housekeeping, the roaring fireplace on colder mornings, coffee delivery, hospitable staff, and flight over hundreds of miles of lush, Canadian forest from Vermilion Bay, Ontario, to Oak Lake Lodge is included as well.)

Great Boats and New Motors Every Year

Oak Lake Lodge provides 16 foot Lund Rebel boats for guests and 17.5 foot Lund Outfitters for guests who hire a guide. All boats are equipped with Yamaha four stroke motors, flat floors and comfortable pedestal seats.

Our docks are maintained and in great condition with slip-resistant material for your protection.

Professional Guides

What makes our guides different — a difference that can give you a better than ever fishing experience? They are professionals. Guiding and hunting have been their livelihood since they were children. The guides at Oak Lake Lodge grew up in a small village in Quebec where they learned how to hunt, fish and trap from their father. Hunting, fishing and trapping was a way of life — where the luxury of electricity wasn’t seen until the 1960s.

Clean and comfortable accommodations with the most modern amenities

Your cottage is kept spotless. You have heat, electricity, filtered running water, hot showers, flush toilets. We vacuum and scrub to ensure that your living space is clean. The cabins are carpeted and well furnished. The main living area includes a large dining table so you can enjoy those late-night cards games, etc., a refrigerator for your beverages, a wood-stove — with chopped logs (we even light your wood-stove if you visit when the morning start to get cold), sofas, armchairs, tables.

The porches are screened in so you aren’t swatting away any flies while you chat with friends after fishing. Enjoy the incredible sunsets from our lounge chairs. The bedrooms include beds with clean linens, blankets and pillows, bedside lamps, curtains on the windows and dressers. So, settle in!

The bathrooms are modern — flush toilets, hot showers, and big fluffy towels. These features will make your visit more enjoyable and comfortable.

Outpost Camp

Our Outpost is an exclusive cabin on the east end of the lake. An outpost vacation includes the same terrific fishing but it is lower priced because you are bringing your food, doing your own cooking, and generally looking after yourself. The outpost camp can accommodate up to 8 guests and is a fully outfitted cabin with two bedrooms, full bathroom and kitchen. The four boats are the same as the lodge boats, 16′ Lund Deep V with 25hp Yamaha motors.
