About Us & our Tradition of Hospitality:

Merkel's Camp has been operating since 1963 and is a family tradition. In all aspects Merkel's Camp is 100% owned and operated by Canadians. It began with Terry's grandparents, Clarence and Violet Merkel. Together they built four cabins and their home. Terry has been a part of the camp all his life; beginning with riding the bulldozer as it built the road into camp and later helping out in all aspects of camp life as he got older from dock boy to guide and all the dirty jobs in between!

Terry purchased the camp in 1983. Since then we've added another larger cabin, more fully serviced trailer sites and a "Drive to Outpost" cabin, one hour from our main camp. We married in 1989 and have two children Maddison and Sawyer.We live year round at our camp and work very hard to create an atmosphere that makes our guests want to come back, again and again.

We have an ideal location on Wabigoon Lake and most guests rarely venture further than 1-3 miles from camp for excellent fishing! You're Pleasure is our Business! This has become our motto due to the excellent service and accommodations we've provided for our guests in the past years. We have had many compliments on our camp and have built a strong return clientele. We'll be providing this same quality of service & accommodations for many years to come!
