Lake Manitou offers some of the best sport fishing available to Northern Ontario. The lake is spring-fed, crystal clear, and abounds with Trout, Perch, Bass, and Whitefish. From Spring to Fall, these species can easily be lured from the depths.

We have guides available at the Lodge who can tour with you on the boat and help find the “hot spots” on Manitou.

Charters can be arranged for terrific Chinook and Rainbow fishing on Lake Huron which surrounds Manitoulin. Coho and Kokanee are more challenging to find, but can also be taken from this Great Lake.

Swimming

Lake Manitou is crystal clear, warm, and excellent for swimming and scuba diving.

We have a small beach for young children to play and parents to sunbathe or read. Confident swimmers can use our walk-out swimming point and floating dock for diving or relaxing.

Kayaking

We have kayaks for rent, or bring your own and enjoy a fun kayak on a beautiful morning.

The hiking trails at Timberlane offers an exploration of the shoreline and local wildlife which includes a large deer population.

There are over 200 acres of private land so bring your camera and take home some scenic memories.

These trails are also perfect for cyclists who often bring along their mountain bikes for adventure. Some guests even tour the local highway and cycle along the lakes and into some of the quaint villages that are in the area.

The Cup and Saucer trail is a 20-minute drive and is a must for photographers, cyclists, and those guests who can handle heights! Be sure to keep little ones under close attention here.

Enjoy an early morning kayak, some wildlife watching, or just sit back, relax and enjoy the water. Don't forget to join our nightly bonfire!
