JR's Portage Bay Camp

Why You'll Love It

JR's Portage Bay Camp (formerly Ejay's Portage Bay Camp) offers you comfortable housekeeping cabins or our on-site campsite on Camping Lake, part of the great English River system. If you want to follow the flowing waters there are the Chukuni, English, and Cedar Rivers, with great fishing as well. You can also access Pakwash and Bruce Lakes. This area of Ontario offers some of the best fishing and hunting anywhere in North America. You can fish for walleye, northern pike, smallmouth bass, perch, whitefish and sauger. We also offer Canadian hunting for moose, bear, duck & grouse.

Our guests see much wildlife on their fishing and wandering trips. There is beautiful scenery with something new and exciting around almost every bend of the shore giving you something new to explore each day of your stay with us. Call for your brochure today.
