My wife was not really interested in going fishing with me to Errington's Wilderness Island. After our stay in August 2013, she has changed her mind and has indicated that she would be more than willing to come back to the resort. The fishing was terrific but the service and food was outstanding. Al Errington and his staff were very... More

Suites over cabins is always a debate. The cabins are more secluded, the suites are closer to the lodge and services. Both cabins and suites are very comfortable and have great views of Lake Wabatongushi. More

If there is one Ontario fishing resort to go to, this would be my choice. One of two resorts on 20-plus-mile-long Lake Wabatongushi, we climbed off the Algoma Central train to be met by owner Al Errington and crew, who quickly ferried us across the water to our lodge located on an island. In the few minutes it took to... More

Regarding mosquitoes and blackflies, we really don't have much. Mosquitoes for an hour or so just a dusk. Blackflies are annoying for about a week in early June. We don't have much for blackflies partially because we are at the top of the Canadian Shield on the divide between Hudson Bay and Lake Superior, so very few springs which blackflies... More
