Crooked Lake Wilderness Lodge is a Historic Corporate Retreat, close to Toronto, yet a true, one of a kind, off-the-grid wilderness destination of serene tranquility in the heart of the Queen Elizabeth II Wildlands Provincial Park. You have to experience it to truly appreciate how exquisitely magical it is!

Crooked Lake Wilderness Lodge is a true off-the-grid wilderness destination. It is ideal for groups of outdoorsmen, fishermen, eco-tourists, family and class reunions, bachelor and bachelorette get-togethers, art, photography, writing and those seeking private exclusive escapes.

Unspoiled Crooked Lake is a bass fisherman’s dream nestled deep within Queen Elizabeth II Wildlands Provincial Park. The QEW Park is an 82,793 acre (33,505 hectare) natural environment class park, just southeast of Muskoka, within the City of Kawartha Lakes. It is one of the most diverse and least disturbed natural areas found in Central Ontario. Isolated on a peninsula in Crooked Lake, with only boat and air access, Crooked Lake Wilderness Lodge’s many choices of activities culminate in an outdoor experience unmatched within such a short distance of Toronto. Crooked Lake, where escaping to your heaven on earth wilderness, at your own pace, is the only priority.

Additional Amenity Description

Crooked Lake was stocked with largemouth bass decades ago and has very little fishing pressure as we practice catch and release; therefore, the abundant bass have reached record weights in Crooked Lake, with tournament size fish up to 7 pounds having been caught.

Largemouth bass is one of the most aggressive fighting fish in the world and will give any fisherman a challenge. The perfect spot for your own private fishing tournament!

Perfect as well for children, and non-fishermen learning to fish, as there is constant action, with a bite at almost every cast. Putting worms on and taking fish off hooks, can be a constant exciting pastime, even from the docks. Great entertainment for families and groups who enjoy the wild side of nature!

Crooked Lake Wilderness Lodge is in the heart of the 35,500 hectare Queen Elizabeth II Wildlands, one of the most diverse and least disturbed natural areas found in Central Ontario. Containing more than 50 landform vegetation patterns, these wildlands have limited or no recent history of logging. The spectacular Canadian Shield with low-rolling topography, rocky outcrops, and treed natural shorelines are reminiscent of Group of Seven paintings.

Explore the scenic wonder of the Canadian wilderness by canoe or kayak. Paddle the 3 km length of Crooked Lake, explore the bays and fishing holes, or venture to nearby lakes and waterways on miles of marked Canoe Routes.

True wilderness hiking experiences are abundant around Crooked Lake. You can paddle across the lake and climb Blueberry Hill, pick blueberries in season and walk for many kilometres on top of the hills of the Canadian Shield, enjoying spectacular views of Crooked Lake and the surrounding wildlands. For the dedicated hiker, Crooked Lake Wilderness Lodge is within a few kilometers of the Ganaraska Hiking Trail – 500 km of fabulous wilderness hiking.
