Big North Lodge & Outposts

Big North Lodge Located on the Winnipeg River System Minaki

Big North Lodge & Outposts is a drive-In Lodge situated in a beautifully remote wilderness near Minaki, Ontario. Big North Lodge combines the adventure of secluded fishing & hunting with the luxury of a private resort and all the comforts of home. This resort is located on Gun Lake, part of the Winnipeg River System which provides guests with easy access to prime fishing spots. Guests can catch walleye, northern pike, smallmouth bass, and muskie while enjoying scenic views of Gun Lake, Little Sand Lake, Rough Rock Lake, Pistol Lake and Big Sand Lake. Hunters will be thrilled with the area’s rich population of moose, white-tailed deer and black bear.

You can also experience unbelievable fly-in fishing at our “Trophy Waters” Roger Lake and Long Lake Outposts.


This small, intimate resort is run by the Rheault family and their staff. Our camp has a maximum of 30 guests at a time. We want each visitor to Big North Lodge to enjoy the personalized service and hospitality that a small family-run resort can provide. Our Housekeeping Plan and American Plan Packages are designed to make each of our guests feel welcome.


In order to provide each hunter with a successful trophy hunt, we only take a maximum of 4-6 hunters each week. This ensures that every hunter will have the chance at a trophy animal without depleting the area’s rich animal population. Our guides will make sure that each client is involved in every stage of the hunt, from tracking animals to bringing down big game.

Hunt Black Bear and White-tailed Deer at the Drive-in Lodge, and hunt trophy Moose at our Roger Lake Outpost.
Non-residents who are bringing guns across the border should remember to fill out the Non Resident Firearm Declaration Form 909.

Our experienced fishing guides will direct fishermen to the best fishing spots and make each trip a treasured memory. Guides can prepare fresh-caught fish in one of our famous “shore lunches.” Fishermen participating in our “Catch and Release” program will receive one of our trophy release pins.
