WELCOME TO BIG HOOK WILDERNESS CAMPS’ Home Base and Mini-Lodge…
At the hub of Big Hook Wilderness Camps is Central Lake, providing its guests with continuous electricity generated by three windmills and eighteen solar panels. At our base camp you will find a few additional amenities including wi-fi internet access, a sauna, stand-up paddleboards, canoes, and guide service. There are two guest cabins at Central separated by a long boardwalk.
With a few staff members and camp dog, Gunner, you’ll have an ear to bend if you want to share some fish stories, but there’s still plenty of seclusion for those looking to get away.
Central Lake is known for its slender channels running north, south, east, and west in the shape of a cross. These narrow channels provide plenty of cover for fisherman on windy days, but several terminate in large basins for those that want to fish big water. The approximate size of Central is nine miles long by eight miles wide. Average depth is thirty feet accompanied with numerous shoals and expansive weed beds which create ideal fishing conditions throughout the season.
Four scenic rapids spill into Central, while one exits. Boats and motors are available on all of the portages. This allows you to explore many great fishing holes and experience miles of true Canadian boreal forest. Fish stay active on this lake all summer long thanks to the large amounts of water flowing throughout the system.
