Auld Reekie Lodge is nestled on the west shores of Gowganda Lakes' largest peninsula. Gowganda Lake is 5 miles long, and is part of the Montreal River system .The Montreal River flows north for the first 35 miles then makes a U-turn and eventually blends in the Ottawa River.
Gowganda Lake, Stumpy Lake and Obushkong Lake are the lakes in the system coming down from the highest point in Ontario, Ishpatina Ridge, located a mere 20 km away.
Auld Reekie Lodge is known for its fishing, in both numbers and in size. We are also known for our quality Black Bear Hunts and the large number of Grouse in our area. Finally, we are probably most well-known for our great variety of Trail Systems, including snowmobiling and ATVing.
