You could not be more perfectly situated for an awesome Ontario fishing adventure than vacationing at Merkel's Camp. We are centrally located on the Wabigoon/ Dinorwic chain of lakes with close and easy access to the best fishing imaginable! Wabigoon Lake and Dinorwic Lake are the top fishing lakes in Ontario for the combination of size, numbers and species. Wabigoon and Dinorwic's shallow and nutrient waters produce massive size Muskie, Giant Northern Pike, big fat Walleyes, feisty hard-fighting Smallmouth Bass as well as hoards of Perch and Crappie. Enjoy shallow water fishing all summer long!
Wabigoon Lake and Dinorwic Lake are also easy lakes to fish because you don't have to worry about fish taking off into super-deep water when the weather changes. Guests of every age and ability find fantastic success on Wabigoon, and its 9 chain lakes! There are drive-to lakes in the area with outstanding Lake Trout fishing.
We also offer an outpost camp on Little Basket Lake. Our Drive-to Outpost cabin on Little Basket Lake is one hour from our main camp. It is the only cabin on the Lake. Little Basket Lake has amazing Walleye and Northern Pike fishing as well as Lake Trout. There is lake access to Basket Lake.
All this wilderness excitement and adventure can be experienced in the comfort of our large, private, clean and fully-equipped lakeside housekeeping cabins on Wabigoon Lake. If you want to bring your RV or rough it a bit in a tent, we also have a fully-serviced campground. Travelers of the Trans-Canada-Highway (highway 17) are welcome to stop in and rest for the night. We offer a Condo Unit. Reservations are required.
Please explore our web site and feel free to contact us with any questions. We have been bringing adventure to guests since 1963.
