Plan Your Trip

Welcome to

Auld Reekie Lodge

The Lodge is located northwest of North Bay, Ontario and southwest of Timmins, Ontario in a remote wilderness region known as Gowganda. Our lodge is a four-season resort offering fantastic angling for Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike, Brook Trout, Lake Trout, Splake & Jumbo Perch. ATVing and Snowmobiling packages are very popular at our resort because we have thousands of miles of trails and paths including some of Ontario's top groomed trails like A107C, which goes right by camp. Hunting for Black Bear, Grouse and other small game is a big attraction in the fall. And now, we host lakeside weddings!

Hosts Urs and Diane along with David, Elizabeth and of course fishing guide Extraordinaire Ed looked after us so well! Food was wonderful and all home cooked. I ate too much! Ambience and hospitality are great! Beautiful setting and awesome service. You will feel at home here. We did! I would love to go back! I recommend this for a summer get away whether you fish or are novices like us. Lots to see and do or you can take a boat out or just sit on the dock in the sun and relax. We did! We hiked too. Wonderful wildlife and birds!!!

We stayed for a week. Had the meal plan. Food was excellent and plenty of it. Fishing on the back country lakes and rivers was good. Beds were very comfortable. Cabins were clean and well equipped.
