The Murdock River offers some of the best fishing around. Bass, Pike, Pickerel, Musky, and Perch are all available in the waterways of the French River area.
Entering the waterway is a breeze using the small boat launch on our property. Alternatively, there is a public boat launch across the road, entering into the top of the French River.
Minnows, worms and fishing supplies are available for purchase in our General Store. Watercraft rentals are available on an hourly, half day and full day basis.
Our fishing guide, Adam Robinson, grew up in the French River. His extensive knowledge of the waterways and where to find a specific species guarantees a fun day out catching “the big one”. Adam’s passion is musky fishing, catching a huge 50″ during a trip with Bill Hamblin, author of 120 days.
Adam’s Package: full day fishing in 22′ Tournament boat, with a 250 engine and 15 kicker. Bait, rods and reels are all supplied. Any fish caught throughout the day are cleaned by Adam before heading back to the cabins.
Canoeing & Kayaking
The French River area offers a multitude of opportunities for canoeing and kayaking adventures. Explore this rugged and untouched area of the Canadian Shield, filled with towering rock cliffs, pine trees and wildlife.
Be sure to paddle your way towards the French River Visitor’s Centre and learn about the history of the area. The French River Provincial Park also offers backcountry camping sites if you’re planning a multi-day canoe/kayaking trip.
Camping at French River Provincial Park? Did you know you can canoe right to the park from our resort? We off special packages for those wishing to paddle from Great Escape Cabins to the park and stay the night (or a few!). Be sure to give us a call at 705-978-0899 for more information.
