Experience the ultimate wilderness retreat - try a remote outpost cottage for your next fishing or hunting trip. If you're looking for an outpost camp to fly into but hate the long drive up north, trying flying out of Atikokan. Atikokan is just north of the Canada/US border, so if you're driving from the United States, you have a short drive to fish in the remote wilderness. You can fly into outpost cabins in the area or you if you don't like to fly, there are some great boat-in cabins. Most cabins are isolated on their own lake system with adjacent portage lakes. Fish for walleye, northern pike, smallmouth bass and lake trout.
Southwest of Atikokan you can fly to McGinnis and Bemar Lakes. Just north of Atikokan you can fly in to outposts on lakes such as Bernadine, Bow, Byers, Dimple, Eric, Gamble, Halfmoon, Hematite, Irene, Light, Little Gull, Lodge, McOuat, Mercutio, Mosher, NaMaygoos, Osprey, Pike, Pyramid, Robinson-Kenoshay, Rollingstone, Sawbill Bay (Marmion Lake) and Surprise. Northeast of Atikokan, north of the Trans-Canada Highway, you can fly into lakes such as Grew, Gridiron, Loganberry, Kershaw, Mountairy, Piche, Tommyhow and Wapikamaski, which is in Wabakimi Provincial Park.
For those fisherman or hunters that don't like to fly, you can boat into outposts on lakes such as Clearwater West and Finlayson. You also can portage into outposts on lakes such as Mount, Pekagoning and Pettit. If you like canoeing, you can paddle into an outpost on Batchewaung Lake in Quetico Provincial Park.
