Canyon Lake Lodge

Why You'll Love It

We are a drive-in camp offering housekeeping plans. Canyon Lake is 14,000 acres with plenty of structure to support fantastic fishing. Our lake is known for having a high population of muskie, with many in the 20-30 lb range being caught every year. The walleye average 1 1/2 to 2 lbs with many over 10 lbs. If you're looking for smallmouth bass action, Canyon Lake offers some of the best in the area. The smallmouths average 3-4 lbs with many hitting the 6 lb range. We also have pike and lake trout available at our portage lakes.

Our log cabins were built in the 1930s. Throughout the years, improvements have been made to make them into modern cabins. All cabins have modern bathrooms complete with showers. The kitchens are fully equipped with dishes and all cooking utensils including pots and pans. All bedding is included in each bedroom. Clean linens, pillows and blankets. All you need to bring is your own towels and personal items.
