Top Ontario Hunting Lodges
Sandy Beach Lodge
Red Lake, Ontario
Discover an outdoor enthusiast's oasis at Sandy Beach Lodge, where big game hunting and exceptional fishing combine. Tucked away in Ontario's secluded wilderness, breathtaking natural scenery serves as your backdrop while on bear or moose hunts. The only thing bigger than the game is the vast wilderness.
Located on 150,000 acres of preserved pristine wilderness within the Trout Lake Conservation Reserve, this lodge offers so much space for your hunting expedition. In fact, the Bear Management Area is located on 150 square miles of remote wilderness, where the trophy black bears roam. Only guests of Sandy Beach Lodge are granted access to this hunting mecca. Moose hunters can purchase a seven-day hunting package, where they're given a chance to bag a trophy rack. When you're not hunting, fish the sparkling waters of Trout Lake. These hunting packages also include fishing gear like boat rentals, minnow buckets, and map. The expert staff is more than willing to share their hot-spot secrets as well. This incredible experience also includes a rustic stay in a cabin, which is fully heated and offers gorgeous natural views. Sandy Beach Lodge is the outfitter you've been hunting for!

Lake Herridge Lodge
Wondering what to pack for your Ontario hunting vacation? We recommend a rifle or shotgun, insect repellent, rain gear and your extended family. If that last must-have item made you pause, we think it’s time to rethink your hunting vacations.
With great fishing, even better hunting and a lodge that was made for family, Lake Herridge Lodge lets the outsdoorsman – or woman – in you shine without sacrificing a minute of family time. Lake Herridge’s crystal clear waters were made for kayak paddles and cannonball contests, while a game room with pool tables and pinball machines is perfect for after-dark competitions. Experienced hunters can spend hours tracking black bear and moose through the Temagami wilderness. And from grouse to fox, the small game found in these Ontario forests makes for an excellent introduction to the sport! Once you’ve successfully taken that hefty black bear or trophy bull, it’s time to put down the bow and pick up the fishing pole. You didn’t really expect to spend a week on the shores of Lake Herridge and not cast a line, did you? The walleye, northern pike, smallmouth bass and lake trout that inhabit these pristine Canadian waters would be pretty disappointed!
Take in Temagami and its endless beauty from a small aircraft. Flights can be arranged with Lakeland Airways in Temagami.
Canoeing, ATV tours, snowmobiling, ice fishing, cross country skiing, hiking, photography and ice skating.

Silv’ry Moon Lodge
No offense to your Labrador retriever, but Trout Lake promises to be one of the finest hunting companions you’ve ever had. The sandy banks and pristine waters of this Ontario lake give way to acre after acre of Canadian wilderness, where massive bull moose – soon to be mounted on your wall – taunt you with their calls.
Even if you only bag a calf, the journey is half the fun at Silv’ry Moon Lodge. Wake with the loons each morning, fall asleep under the light of the moon each night and stalk the Ontario wilderness to your heart’s content in the long hours in between. Hearty meals and cozy accommodations are included in every Silv’ry Moon hunt. And while Trout Lake serves as a watering hole for cows and their calves, it’s also filled with northern pike, perch, walleye and muskie that patiently await your hook! You’re the type of parent who’s accustomed to your kids racing up to you, covered head to toe in dirt and with a slimy frog clasped tightly in their grasp. For you, a family vacation to Silv’ry Moon Lodge finds you in familiar territory – even if you’ve never set foot on Canadian soil before. The lodge’s log cabins even include screened porches that are perfect for card games just beyond the pesky mosquito’s reach.
Each Silv’ry Moon cabin steps out to the pine-studded shores of Trout Lake, where kids can reel in a full stringer of tasty pan fish with just a few casts.

Blyth’s Canyon Lake Lodge
Vermilion Bay, Ontario
Tucked into Northwestern Ontario’s pine forests and just north of Vermilion Bay, Blyth’s Canyon Lake Lodge is a far cry from city life – a fact you’ll be glad for when it comes time to hunt. The incessant honking of rush hour traffic would likely scare all the game away, not to mention what it would do to your concentration!
One of only three resorts on the lake, this Ontario lodge’s secluded location makes it perfectly suited to hunting and fishing. Canyon Lake walleyes top out at 10-plus lbs. and giant muskies are quick to take the bait, leaving no room to wonder why manufacturers come to test their lures here. As Midwest Outdoors once proclaimed, if you can’t catch muskie on a week’s trip to Canyon Lake, you might as well take up golf! The densely wooded acreage that surrounds the lodge boasts some of the highest black bear success rates in the country, while hunting over baited stands works wonders for your chance to bag the big game you came for. While these one-room Ontario cabins have been updated with modern baths and full kitchens since their construction, their rustic charm has been beautifully maintained. And summer cocktail hours, a Blyth’s Canyon Lake Lodge tradition, take you back to simpler times when friends and neighbors gathered to share stories over a cold beer and a fruit salad with marshmallow fluff as its primary ingredient.
The Canyon Lake Lodge camp store stocks basic groceries, gas, souvenirs and limited fishing supplies for your convenience.
