Known as “Sunset Country”, northwestern Ontario is an area covering 60,000 square miles with over 70,000 fishable lake and river systems – so there will be no problem finding a good fishing hole. Fish for walleye, small and largemouth bass, muskie, northern pike, lake trout, perch, crappie and even brook trout!

Some of Ontario’s most famous fishing lakes are located in northwestern Ontario. Lac Seul, Rainy Lake and Lake of the Woods are names that strike a chord in the heart of anglers across North America. There are countless other smaller lakes and river systems that offer trophy fishing opportunities. Communities such as Red Lake, Ear Falls, Pickle Lake, Sioux Narrows, Nestor Falls, Kenora, Ignace and Fort Frances are all located here. From Atikokan in the east to Rainy River in the west and north to the shorelines of Hudson’s Bay, there is a lodge, resort or outpost destination to suit your tastes and budget. We also list over 80 campground and RV parks that cozy up to scenic lake and riversides – Sunset Country has some of Ontario’s most beautiful landscapes and scenery.

islands The lodges in Sunset Country not only offer great fishing and hunting, many are also ideal destinations for a fun-filled family vacation. Your children will enjoy the wide open spaces, the wildlife and the many activities and attractions that awaits them. Hiking, biking, swimming and boating are just a few examples of the fun to be had. As you relax along a sandy beach, you’ll enjoy watching your kids build sandcastles and splash about in clean, crystal clear lakes. Make sure you bring your camera to record the memories of their Canadian adventure. If the kids get restless at the lodge, you have the opportunity to take a short drive into a nearby town where the kids can go shopping, take in a movie, eat at a restaurant or enjoy activities at one of the many festivals and events which occur throughout the summer months.

In the winter, enjoy snowmobiling on uncongested snowmobile trails that criss-cross for hundreds of miles through the boreal forest. Go ice fishing, cross-country skiing or snow-shoeing. After a refreshing day in the wilderness, retire to your cabin and enjoy yourself in a hot tub or sauna. If your staying in town, there are a wide variety of hotels, motels and Bed & Breakfast establishments for you to choose from.
