Young's Wilderness Camp

Why You'll Love It

Young’s Wilderness Camp is a traditional fishing and hunting resort that best suits those looking for a quiet getaway. We are on a 5.5 acre private island in Stevens Bay on the southeastern side of Lake of the Woods in Ontario featuring fully serviced waterfront cabins, shuttle and dock service, a high-quality fleet of rentals, all-inclusive American Plan and Housekeeping packages, a resident massage therapist, and much more.  

Just an hour from International Falls, 5 miles from town, and a 2 mile boat ride from our private landing, we’re remote enough to feel like a fly-in but well situated for trophy muskie, northern, walleye, bass, crappie, perch and lake trout. We also have a fly-in outpost cabin which is a 20-minute flight from Nestor Falls to the eastern side of Kishkutena Lake for muskie, bass and lake trout.  

Hunters will find abundant deer, ducks and grouse on both the mainland and on many islands within a few minutes of the resort. Hunting season is also great for fishing so we encourage hunters to bring fishing gear.

For anyone who just wants to escape from a busy lifestyle, you can also hike, take a canoe ride or find a natural beach and go swimming. The possibilities are endless.
