Big North Lodge & Outposts

Why You'll Love It

Enjoy the beauty of a wilderness setting with all the comforts of home. Come see our fully modern and comfortable cabins that can accommodate 2 to 6 people or as many as 8 to 10 in our large 4 bedroom cottage. All of our modern cabins have microwaves, propane or electric heat, electricity, hot & cold running water and a private bathroom with basin, shower, tubs and flush toilet. We are big enough to have all the comforts of home but small enough to give you personalized hospitality and service with either our Housekeeping or American Plan packages. 

The fishing here at  Big North Lodge is excellent for walleye, northern pike, bass, and muskie throughout the season, from May to October. You can fish Gun Lake or the Winnipeg River System right from the beautiful cedar main lodge. Or enjoy true solitude and fantastic fishing on Long or Roger Lake on the Sturgeon River System. Big North Lodge also offers deer, moose, black bear, and wolf hunting in the fall.
