where adventure enthusiasts find Canadian outdoor recreation & accommodation

Wilderness North



Makokibatan Lodge is a four-star, deluxe All-Inclusive American Plan fishing lodge. An 80-mile float plane ride is what separates you from the rest of civilization to the south. Taking off and landing on water is an unforgettable experience that completes a perfect Canadian wilderness adventure. Makokibatan Lodge offers some of Northern Ontario's best walleye and northern pike fishing. Not only can you expect to catch large quantities of walleye, you'll be amazed at the number of trophy size walleye and monster pike that this lake harbors. A highlight to a fishing vacation at Makokibatan Lodge is a guided trip on the Albany River itself. A full day spent traveling through some of Canada's most spectacular scenery, running exciting rapids and catching plenty of fish.

It's a fishing vacation you'll remember for a lifetime for the service and hospitality and the delicious daily shore lunches with freshly caught walleye. Our chef provides our guests with hearty and delicious home cooked meals served in our spacious dining room overlooking the lake. First class all the way! You'll enjoy the lake scenery, and sunsets, from the large front deck overlooking beautiful Makokibatan Lake. Spend the evening playing cards in the lodge, or shopping in the tuck and tackle shop.

Our six "four star" log cottages are fully equipped to meet your every need. Each has three bedrooms with two single beds, cozy wool blankets, large dressers, bedside lamps, and a three-piece washroom complete with shower. As well, the cottages have large living rooms to enjoy the waterfront views, large tables for card playing, cozy wood heater with thermostatic control, and the small refrigerator. It's luxury living in a remote wilderness setting. Each party will have their own private cabin. We are the only lodge on the lake.

From Leuenberger's Air Base in Nakina, you will be flown directly into the lodge on float equipped DeHavilland Beaver or Otter.
