ACCOMMODATIONS AND FACILITIES
Young’s Wilderness Camp is located on a private five acre island and features eight lake view cabins nestled in towering pines and an air conditioned lodge. We offer both Housekeeping and American plan packages; fishing gear rental is available upon request.
FAMILIES AND PETS
Young’s Camp is family owned and family friendly. We encourage families to bring their children to share in the wilderness experience. Many of our guests stay with us to share with their children the same experiences they had when their parents brought them to a Northwood’s lodge.
As any owner knows, a dog is a family member. We welcome well behaved, socialized dogs and allow them to stay in your cabin with you.
Under the American plan guests are served three home cooked meals a day. Dinner is served buffet style including a salad bar and is topped with one of Carol’s home made deserts. Guests may return to the lodge for lunch, have us make you a sack lunch to take with you or arrange for a traditional Northwood’s shore lunch.
After dinner you can watch the lodge television with satellite feed, check your email or sit around the bonfire outside and swap stories about the one that didn't get away.
All American Plan packages include an Ontario 8-day Conservation fishing license and cabins with a refrigerator, linens, bathrooms with towels and daily maid service. When you choose American plan just bring your gear and clothes.
Housekeeping cabins include a refrigerator, stove and microwave, gas barbeque, cooking utensils, dishes, blankets, linens and towels. You bring your gear, clothing and food.
Many new friendships are started and old acquaintances renewed while relaxing in our air conditioned lodge. Also located here is our store area and tackle shop. We keep a wide variety of tackle on hand in the event you need that one special bait that you didn't bring with you.
Cell phone service is sporadic in this area so there is a guest phone and wireless Internet available in the lodge. You can use our computer or bring along your laptop if you want to keep in touch with those at home.
BOATS AND MOTORS
We maintain a fleet of sixteen foot, deep-V fishing boats with quiet, smooth-running 40 hp, four stroke outboard motors designed to handle the challenges of weather. They are outfitted with pedestal seats, casting platform, live well, trolling motor and depth finder. In addition, we have a fleet of wide body, sixteen foot, deep-V boats with 25 hp outboard motors for use with our hunting packages. Fuel is included when using our boats in conjunction with an American plan package. Canoes are also available for your use.
Young’s Wilderness Camp has a clean, spacious fish house with the necessary equipment to clean, package and freeze your fish.
We have fishing guides available with many years of experience who will take you to the ideal spots based on the conditions of the day. Perry and Trevor are our full-time guides and we have a team of part time guides who are very knowledgeable on fishing Lake of the Woods. Your guide will be ready to leave the dock at 8:00 a.m. for a full day of fishing including a traditional shore lunch. Guides also clean and package your catch however they are in demand so you need to book as far in advance as possible.
