"Family Lake" and "good fishing" mean the same thing when you're talking about walleyes and northern. Walleye is considered by most fishermen to be the best tasting of all freshwater fish.. And boy, do we have walleyes! No live bait needed. Walleyes gather on the many reefs of Family Lake throughout the season. In the spring, you'll be amazed as you pluck walleye after walleye from 2 or 3 feet of water. Invariably our guests end up casting for the "monster northern pike". These are real "eating machines" - taking anything that will fit in their mouth. These pike are usually found in less than 15 feet of water, along weed beds and in weedy bays.
For the Service
Our American Plan guests will be gathering in our new dining room for a hearty breakfast prepared by our personal cook. Your 14' boat will be ready to go with a full tank of gas to power the new 9.9 Mercury motor. For those getting their meals thru our American Plan, a box lunch or all the fixin's for a Canadian shore lunch will be packed and ready to go. After a full day of fishing, you may clean your catch back at camp in one of Canada's finest fish houses. While we do not serve alcohol, you are very welcome to pour your own in your cabin, or come on up with your glass to the dining room if you're having dinner with us.
To relax in style while visiting the peaceful Canadian northwoods
The beautiful sunrise, the stunning sunset, a moonlit night with the loons calling in the distance, staring at the countless stars overhead, northern lights racing across the sky, and the quiet. And more quiet. Shining Falls Lodge is truly a "getaway" from our hectic, everyday lives.
To watch the wildlife
Spend your early morning hours searching the shorelines for moose, caribou, deer or bear. Bring the binoculars and scan the treetops for birds. Walk our beautiful island in search of countless species of plants and animals. Pack along your bird book, plant identifier and go for it!
Use our comfortable dining room as the "Wilderness Board Room" for your company meeting. The scenery observed through the dining room windows is sure to inspire everyone in attendance. Don't forget to schedule in that fishing time, too!
Family Reunions or Group fishing trips
Parties of 12 or more, call for special pricing! Parties of 16 or more, book the entire camp and have your own private paradise. We're happy to work with you to make your celebration a memorable one.
The Honeymoon Getaway
Cabin #4 was built just for you with its own docks and very private setting. What more can we say?
And then, before you know it, your time at Shining Falls Lodge is over. You'll start to reminisce about the great meals and all the hearty laughs during breakfast and dinner. Wasn't it just yesterday that you caught that first walleye. Wasn't it this morning that you landed your first 40" northern pike? No, it was almost a week ago --- the time has just flown by. Your mind will start to wander towards thoughts of next year's trip, and all the miles of shoreline here on Family Lake that is still left to fish and explore. And as the sun sets on your last day at Shining Falls, you'll be thinking about waiting ..
