LODGING: Makoop Lake Lodge
There are 4 comfortable log cabins with 3 bedrooms (2 twin beds each), comfortable table/chairs, hot/cold running water and flush toilets, an unheard-of amenity in a remote fishing camp, also featured is a screened porch, and a small refrigerator in each cabin along with a wood fireplace to take off the morning chill. All bedding and towels are furnished by the Lodge. Each of the cabins is connected to the Lodge and water front with a wooden board walk. The main lodge is where 3 wholesome family style meals are served daily, prepared by a great executive chef. Shore lunch or a bag lunch are also available daily. You will not go away hungry with fresh meats, vegetables and deserts prepared each day. Adjacent to the Lodge is a gazebo where tall tales are told and friendships are made. An automatic washer and dryer is available for guests to use as necessary. Two Cummins diesel generators provide 24/7 110v electricity. Wi-Fi Skyllink satellite internet is also available at no charge to guests.
A full camp is 12 people. A perfect adventure for couples, dad/sons/daughters. Makoop Lake Lodge is very remote. There is no radio or TV, and limited connectivity with the outside world. Your trip will begin at 8 AM on Sunday morning at the float plane base in Sioux Lookout, Ontario, just a few blocks away from your motel room where you must stay on Saturday night. A 1-1/2 hour ride above the forest and waters of NW Ontario will bring you to the dock at Makoop Lake. Your luggage will be delivered to your cabin, it's time to rig your fishing gear and get ready for the time of your life. A short safety meeting in the Lodge, and then your first fish will be boated just minutes after your arrival. Return to Sioux Lookout the following Sunday about noon for your return home.
