Established in 1928, Wolseley Lodge has a long tradition of offering exceptional outdoor experiences to families and anglers alike. With an ideal location along the shores of the French River, you can see why many locals consider this to be one of Ontario's premier fishing destinations. The French River is more like a chain of lakes connected by rapids that are teeming with walleye, muskie, northern pike, small and large-mouth bass, perch, and sunfish. The waters of the French River and Wolseley Bay feature incredible shorelines that are primarily untouched for a truly exceptional experience. When you're not casting your line, you can explore the stunning natural surroundings on a hike, or relax onsite. The main lodge features a pool table and darts to keep you entertained. An outside playground is a highlight for the kids, as well as the complimentary kayaks, canoes, and paddle-boats you can take out onto the water for a fun cruise. Mini pontoon boats offer easy boarding access for anyone with disabilities so you don't have to miss out on all the action either. In the evening, gather around the nightly campfire with your family or friends!
