Argyle Lake Lodge
Matachewan Fishing & Hunting Resort
Truly a remote wilderness location that is fully accessible by road. Argyle Lake Lodge is set in the James Bay Frontier Bush. Miles from our nearest neighbour, we are the only tourist camp on a series of four lakes. Make the most out of your recreational time with one of our cottages. Hunt, fish and explore infinite hiking, ATV and canoeing possibilities, or just relax on our natural sandy beach.
All cottages at Argyle Lake Lodge come fully equipped for housekeeping with modern appliances and electric lights.
Cooking utensils, dishes, blankets and pillows are supplied. Wood stoves provide a cozy atmosphere. Our self-contained cottages vary in size from the two-room log cabin to 2 and 3 bedroom units complete with 3 piece washroom facilities. Guests are responsible for their own personal towels, soap, toiletries and bed linens.
The only restrictions to your varied fishing opportunities are your energy level and available time. Northern pike, walleye, small mouth bass and perch can be found in the four interconnecting lakes, all accessible by boat from the lodge. Over 100 lakes and streams are located within a five-mile radius of your cottage. Some waters can be reached from the side of the road. Other lakes and streams require extra effort to launch a canoe, but the results of fishing secluded water can be most rewarding. In addition the pike, walleye, bass, perch and speckled trout are also indigenous to many of these northern lakes and streams. Well-maintained boats and motors are available on a rental basis. Live bait, gas, oil, fishing and hunting licenses can all be purchased on location.
Argyle Lake is located in Wildlife Management area #29, which has an excellent reputation with bow and rifle hunters. Our unique drive-in bush location allows us to offer one of the better opportunities for moose hunting in the area. With numerous roads and bush trails surrounding the camp you are only minutes away from potential hunt sites. WMU #29 has a separate and distinct season for bow hunters. Not only are there some excellent bear and moose hunting in our area, but the opportunity also exists for snowshoe hare, ruffed grouse and spruce grouse hunting. Why not join us this year and give it a shot.
At Argyle Lake Lodge we offer fall bear hunting. Fall hunting is an excellent bear hunt based on our previous success rates. The hunts are all conducted from ground blinds or tree stands over active bear baits. Hunters are welcome to bring their own portable tree stands if so desired. Freezing and assistance in the preparation of bear for transportation is provided free of charge.
There is access to hundreds of miles of ATV trails that begin right from Argyle Lake Lodge. Trails vary to accommodate everyone from ATV beginners or the experienced rider. Pack a lunch and spend the day exploring the beautiful scenic northern wilderness.
Argyle Lake Lodge is located 24 kilometers west of Matachewan, Ontario on Highway 566.
