At Big North Lodge in Minaki near Kenora you will find a cedar main lodge and situated along the shoreline to allow a beautiful view of Gun Lake on the Winnipeg River System. Our family operated resort was built 27 years ago by your hosts Pat & Alex Rheault.
Our camp, with a maximum capacity of 30 guests, is small enough to be considered your own private fishing lodge, but has the advantages of personalized service and hospitality offered by The Rheault family (Alex, Pat, Jess & Zach) and their staff. Both American Plan and Housekeeping Packages are available.
Hunting And Fishing
Fishing at Big North Lodge starts right from our docks. Throughout the season, from May to October, fishing is excellent for walleye, Northern Pike, Bass and there is the ever elusive Muskie for the experienced, patient fisherman. Five fishing lakes, Gun Lake, Little Sand Lake, Big Sand Lake, Rough Rock Lake and Pistol Lake, on the Winnipeg River System can be reached by boat without portaging.
Our guides are experienced and well qualified to make your fishing trip a memorable success. Who can forget the famous shore lunches, expertly prepared by your guide. A feast of fresh walleye with all the trimmings is well worth telling your friends about.
Enjoy some of the best whitetail deer hunting in Northwestern Ontario. Deer can be hunted several ways in our area. From tree stands, we do have several permanent stands and we suggest you bring portable stands. There are areas where stalking can provide excellent opportunities to take a large buck.
Have the comforts of our housekeeping cottages to relax and enjoy evening snacks. Daily maid service is provided. Delicious home cooked meals (shore lunch when fishing) are served in the Lodge dining room. The expanded lounge area in the main lodge provides the ideal setting to meet the other guests, exchange fishing and hunting tales or play a game of pool. We also have satellite TV, VCR/DVD movies and video games.
