Stevens Bay

Lake of the Woods, Ontario



Welcome to Young's Camp on Lake of the Woods


Lake of the Woods in Northern Ontario, Canada is an internationally acclaimed fishery and one of the top choices for angler destinations worldwide.  Lake of the Woods is home to large numbers of world class trophy Musky, voracious Northern Pike, hard hitting and hard fighting Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, Crappie, Yellow Perch and of course, plenty of delicious eating Walleye!  Young’s Wilderness Camp is located in the middle of one of the “prime” spawning areas for all of these species and offers you the opportunity to be in the midst of fast paced fish catching opportunities just moments from the camp itself.


Due to the remote location of Stevens Bay and our camp, the fishing pressure is extremely low. It is not uncommon to virtually spend a full day without seeing another boat and to be able to take in the serene and breathtaking beauty of all the North Woods has to offer!  Couple the serenity and beauty of the area with such a wide variety of fish catching opportunities and it spells one of the best family or group getaways one could possibly hope for!


Young’s Wilderness Camp is located on the Canadian Shield, also known as the Laurentian Plateau, an area where, during the Pleistocene epoch, continental ice sheets carved out deep valleys leaving behind myriad lakes, rivers and a dense boreal forest.  Our location offers a rich, mixed bag for the hunter.


The more than a million acres of Crown Land is heavily populated with the deciduous plant life that provides a natural habitat for white-tail deer, black bear, moose and countless other mammals.


Young's Camp is all about recreation, relaxation and serenity. Whether your interest is fishing, hunting or just relaxing, we would like nothing better than to accommodate you as our guest.


Here is what we have to offer:


• World Class Trophy Fishing

• Remote Boat-In Island Resort

• First Class Northwood’s Accommodations

• Quality Home Cooked Meals on the American Plan Packages

• A commitment to outstanding personal service

• A fleet of 16’-18’ Fully Equipped Boats

• Professional Guides on Staff

• An option to Fly-in to our remote Outpost


Your satisfaction is guaranteed

because the only thing we overlook is the lake!

Young’s Wilderness Camp is located a little over an hour’s drive northwest of International Falls, Minnesota.





















From the U.S.A, drive to International Falls or Baudette, Minnesota, clearing customs at either place. Take Ontario Highway 11 to 71. (If you are coming from International Falls you will go west on Highway 11 and if you are coming through Baudette, you will go east.) Go north on Highway 71 for approximately 40 miles. You will go through the town of Nestor Falls, then through Sabaskong First Nations and a couple miles past this you will see the “Young’s Road” sign. Turn left onto our road (it will be the first road after the blue Kakagi Storage building). Once you turn onto the road you will see a barn red garage on your right hand side and a white house on your left hand side - please drive very slowly through this yard. Continue down the road to the landing and you will find a phone on the brown boat house by the dock. Call us from there (the number is on the phone) to let us know you have arrived and we will come and pick you up.


For those who fly commercially we can make the arrangements with the local transportation company to have you picked up from the International Falls airport. For those who chose to fly their own aircraft, Nestor Falls has an asphalt runway which is 75' x 3,750' long.  Airport details can be found at
