Tucked away in the bosom of nature on the sparkling shores of Thousand Island Lake, Wilderness Bay Lodge & Resort is a secluded getaway that offers outdoor adventures all four seasons. Enjoy great fishing year-round and beautiful winters with cross county skiing and snow shoeing in the Sylvania Wilderness Area. If you feel the need for speed, hop on a snowmobile and zip through the winter wonderland. After you've worked up an appetite, return to the resort, fire up the onsite grill, and fry some burgers for a family picnic!


The Ottawa National Forest is host to a variety of cross country skiing opportunities. There are over 90 miles of ski trails located throughout the area with over half of the miles groomed. Trails range in difficulty from beginner to expert.


Your fishing options are almost limitless, as numerous islands and bays provide great fishing spots, as do the smaller uninhabited lakes. Walleyes, muskies, bass, northern pike, perch, and other panfish are all plentiful.
