Barker Bay Resort & Outposts

Why You'll Love It

Experience the beautiful and extraordinary “Manitou” at Barker Bay Resort. It is our intent to provide their guest with a unique opportunity to fish, hunt and explore the region while having an enjoyable and relaxing stay. Located 20 miles by boat from the landing we are truly in the wilderness but still have the comforts of 24hr power, indoor plumbing, and even wifi.

A pristine waterway, the Manitou system is an amazing fishery with clear, cold water for lake trout, smallmouth bass, northern pike, and muskie.  We also offer bear and grouse hunting.

  • Muskie: We promote "catch and release" in order to continue to sustain and reproduce these monster muskies.
