family fishing resort
Rental housekeeping (self catering ) cottages for families and groups with the accent on fishing for walleye, pike, bass and muskie. RV camping with RV Campsites equipped with utilities. Tent camping on excellent campsites near the water. The 2008 fishing season offered excellent fishing. Walleye fishing was very good in July and August. In our area of the Spanish River the limit, for those with a Sport Fishing License, is 4 but only one can be greater than 18 inches. Northern pike were also hitting well,a camp record of 45 inches was caught and releaced, and several muskie were caught and released.

Our family resort offers Modern fully-equipped Cottages, Camping, and RV sites.

The cottages come complete with 4-piece bathrooms, kitchens with appliances, cookware, dishes, & cutlery, all linens, combination TV/VCRs, and clock radios.

The resort has a children's playground, TV lounge, horseshoe pits, swimming deck, and a badminton volleyball area. There is fun for the entire family.

Fishing the Spanish River or the North Channel of Lake Huron offers anglers a wide variety of fishing action and beautiful scenery. Walleye, Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, and Perch tend to be the most sought after, but there are also Muskie, Crappie, pan fish, Catfish, Rainbow Trout, Salmon, and more.

We are the only resort on the lower Spanish River,
which offers some of the best fishing in Ontario.

We have a quiet, secluded setting even though we
are just one mile off of highway 17.

Your Hosts

Cal and Deborah Matheson.

It would be our pleasure to have you visit us at the resort.

We enjoy sharing our experiences of running a resort and the telling of lots of fish tales.

The most enjoyed aspect of resort management is meeting people like yourselves and creating not just a larger client base but new friendships.
